Conference Canceled

Dear colleagues and friends,

due to the complications caused by the outbreak of coronavirus, the organizing commitee has (sadly) decided to cancel this year's Cognition and Artificial Life. We have considered many options and formats, but the current situation is so hardly predictible, that we prioritized health concern and we're also hoping that this way we can prevent wasting both your and our time spent on preparing the programme and presentations. 

We believe that next year the conference will take place with as great attendance and as interesting programme as is was planned for this year.

If you have already sent the conference fee, please contact us via cal2020@phil.muni.cz.

Stay safe and healthy.

On behalf of the organizing team with best regards,

Čeněk Šašinka.

Tradition of 20 years. Regular international forum for researchers from various fields. Interdisciplinary dialogue as a means of development. High quality of both scientific and social programme. That is Cognition and Artificial Life. In 2020, the conference will be held in the beautiful town of Znojmo, which is a cultural and historic jewel among Moravian vineyards in the South of Czechia.

The conference provides a cross-disciplinary platform intended to share and exchange knowledge between specialists in psychology, cognitive science, AI, neuroscience, informatics, and related fields. And as for this year, geography and cartography will enrich the conference programme in a parallel section accessible freely to all participants.   

Meetings of three International Cartographic Association (ICA) commissions will be held during the conference:

  • Commission on User Experience (comission chair: R. Roth);
  • Commission on Cognitive Issues in Geographic Information Visualization (comission chair: A. Griffin);
  • Commission on Location-Based Services (comission chair: H. Huang).
