Announcing ASIC 2007!

The Sixth Annual Summer Interdisciplinary Conference (ASIC 2007) will be held at the Kalydna Island Hotel on the island of Kalymnos, Greece (see:, or: Richard M. Shiffrin of Indiana University - Bloomington is the organizer: Email correspondence should be directed to or mailed to Richard M. Shiffrin at Indiana University (select 'Contact' from the menu for the address).

The subject matter of the ASIC conferences is interdisciplinary, within the broad frame of Cognitive Science. ASIC uses the very successful format of previous ASIC and AIC conferences: Days are free for leisure activities and the talks/posters are in the later afternoon/early evening, followed by dinner. The date has been chosen to make it convenient for attendees to bring family/friends. The conference is open to all interested parties, and an invitation is NOT needed to attend. However, due to the small number of spots for speakers, the organizer will select the attendees to give talks, and the other attendees will have the opportunity to present posters.

Previous Years' Websites

Several parts of this year's website are still under construction. For examples of previous years' websites, visit ASIC 2006 and ASIC 2005.


The conference is open to all scholars who fit the very general theme of the conference, and their family and friends. An individual invitation is NOT needed. We encourage you to send the conference information to friends and colleagues.


Conference Aims

The conference will cover a wide range of subjects in cognitive science, including:

We especially invite talks emphasizing theory, mathematical modeling, and computational modeling (including neural networks and artificial intelligence). Nonetheless, we require talks that are comprehensible and interesting to a wide scientific audience. Speakers will provide overviews of current research areas, as well as of their own recent progress.

Conference Format

There is a single speaking session each day, except Saturday, which will have posters for the first half session. Information on submitting proposals for presentations (speaking or posters) is on the page of this website labeled 'Talk and Poster Submissions". Please submit talk/poster information on the website, even if you have already sent (some of) this information to the organizer.

The conference will start with registration and a reception from 15:30-16:30 on Tuesday, June 26. On subsequent days (except Saturday) there will be drinks and light snacks from 16:15 - 16:30, followed by a session of seven spoken presentations that include a mid-session drink break. The first half session on Saturday will be devoted to poster presentations, and will have drinks and snacks available for this period.

It will not escape the careful reader that this conference format frees most of the day for various activities with colleagues, family, and friends. We expect all scientific attendees and participants to attend all sessions. The time frame will allow day trips to nearby sites, cities, and islands, but arrange to return in time for the sessions. Travel to sites from which a return for the session will not be possible should be arranged for days preceding and following the conference.


You are not officially on the request list for presenting research (talks or posters) until you send the registration fee. visit the Registration page at this website.


Rooms at Kalydna Island Hotel are limited, so reserve soon (the hotel can offer rooms at nearby hotels when space is full). For information visit the Lodging page at this website.
