March 29, 2015: Notification of accepted posters (The symposium is posters and invited talks only)



ISBCS invites research from all the fields which involve the common goal of cognitive science research: understanding the nature of the human mind and other minds including artificial minds. All submissions related to disciplines comprising the field of Cognitive Science will be considered, including Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics, Computer Science, Anthropology, Psychology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Education.


Papers can be short/long conference papers and/or abstracts. If accepted, we expect at least one author to present the poster at the symposium. The papers may be submitted to/accepted by other conferences; we do not publish proceedings or require copyright. We will put together a booklet (or e-booklet) of abstracts. ISBCS is a great opportunity to get feedback before you present in a conference, or discuss research before its final result/publication. Graduate students and undergraduates of research lore are encouraged to present their thesis topics in the form of an abstract.

Confirmed Speakers:
Margaret Boden, University of Sussex

Aylin Küntay, Koç University

Daniela Schulz, Yeditepe University

Mark Steedman, University of Edinburgh

Seyhun Topbas, Anadolu University

Bonnie Webber, University of Edinburgh


We hope to see you at ISBCS 2015, April 19, in Ankara.

Cem Bozsahin, Albert Ali Salah, Simay Ikier
