Abstract:

The Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society is the premier international event for cognitive science work, and it also has been the historical center for interdisciplinary research related to cognition, as well as work that is specifically based on computational cognitive modeling. The objective of this project was to support student attendance for the 30th Annual Cognitive Science Conference by reducing the registration fees for students so that it is very low. The conference was held on July 23-26, 2008 in Washington, D.C. The CSS received 295 student registrations with 6 cancellations for the 2008 conference. This represents an increase of nearly 12 in number of student registrations 259 over the 2007 conference. Further, nearly half of the member attendees were students. Thus, we feel that supporting the attendance of these students through reduced registration was a resounding success and highlights the need and importance of the current support.
