[visionlist] Announcing the Reformation of the Australasian Society for Cognitive SciencePosted: March 7, 2017
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are pleased to announce the reformation of the
Australasian Society for Cognitive Science (ASCS). The main activity of the
society has been the organization of conferences. The society now aims to run
regular conferences every second year with an eye to becoming the peak body for
the interdisciplinary study of the mind in Australasia.
The first major event for the reformed society will be a
conference held at the brand new Port Macquarie (yes we have an airport, along
with our beaches and rainforest) campus of Charles Sturt University on the 7th
and 8th of December 2017. Max Coltheart (Macquarie) will keynote the
event. This event will include a general meeting of the society to endorse a
new constitution and elect a committee consisting of a president, general
secretary, treasurer, student representative and communications officer. We
will also be seeking expressions of interest from those wanting to host the
next conference in 2019.
Much more information about the conference will be
forthcoming in the next weeks.
For now, interested parties are asked to contact Glenn
Please forward this onto any potentially interested parties.
