Spatial Cognition 2018

Spatial Cognition 2018

The conference will be held in Tuebingen, Germany, September 05 to 08, 2018.

Spatial Cognition is concerned with the acquisition, organization, and utilization of knowledge about spatial objects and environments, be it real, virtual, or abstract, human or machine. Spatial Cognition comprises research in different scientific fields insofar as they are concerned with cognitive agents and space, such as cognitive psychology, linguistics, computer science, geography, philosophy, or education. Research issues in the field range from the investigation of human spatial cognition to mobile robot navigation, including aspects such as wayfinding, spatial planning, spatial learning, internal and external representations of space, and communication of spatial information. SC 2018 will bring together researchers working on spatial cognition from all of these perspectives. The conference is single-track, and the final program will be the result of a selective review process. The program will include invited talks as well as oral and poster presentations of refereed papers.

The main conference will be preceded by one day of tutorials, workshops, and symposia.
