Welcome to the Center for Cognitive Science

WHEN: Friday, September 12, 9:30 am - 2 pm

The goal of the workshop is to encourage interdisciplinary discussion and collaboration among students and faculty from the interlocking disciplines making up Cognitive Science at Rutgers. Discussion will center around a series of five short talks by graduate students from Computer Science, Linguistics, Philosophy and Psychology. We hope each talk will give rise to a lively discussion, and we encourage everyone interested in interdisciplinary cognitive science to attend.
