The Cognitive Science Seminar Series (formerly the IMC Reading Group) takes place every Wednesday 12-1pm. The venue is the ITL middle floor meeting room (i.e. the larger room opposite the desk), unless otherwise stated.

Come to share something interesting, test a conference presentation, get feedback on a grant proposal, try out a new idea or propose a paper that would be of interest to the group. If you are interested in booking a slot to present, please contact Arkaitz Zubiaga email: [1]. You will need to provide a short abstract, and any relevant attachments (ideally) the week before you present. These will be circulated to the Cognitive Science Seminar Series mailing list each week, and listed here. To see whether you will automatically get these e-mails as part of the Cognitive Science Research Group or to sign up to our mailing list, please visit this page. They will also be added to the online CogSci Meetings calendar, which you can access via Google calendar or iCal etc.

Remember that it is only fun presenting if there is an audience. Please do get involved in coming along and giving feedback to the presenters, especially if you have some overlap in your areas of interest.
