New Trends in Cognitive Science 2001

"Virtual Reality: Philosophical Issues — Technological Implications"

The NTCS'01 conference focussed on "Virtual Reality: Philosophical Issues — Technological Implications" and was held September 20-22, 2001, at the Museum of Natural History in Vienna, Austria. It was organized together with the Austrian Society for Organismic and Systemic Research and Theory. The goal of this single-track conference was to investigate and discuss new approaches and developments in the field of virtual reality with regard to its cognitive and philosophical issues and technological implications in a workshop-like atmosphere. Invited speakers were Rolf Ewers, Bill Keays, Peter König, Shulamith Kreitler, Laszlo Ropolyi, Christian Stary, Luc Steels, and Nadia Manenat Thalman.

The proceedings have been published by Peter Lang Verlag: Riegler, Alexander / Peschl, Markus F. / Edlinger, Karl / Fleck, Günther / Feigl, Walter (eds.) (2001) Virtual Reality. Cognitive Foundations, Technological Issues and Philosophical Implications

New Trends in Cognitive Science 1999

"Computation — the next Generation"

The international conference and workshop NTCS'99 brought together theorists working on identifying a "successor" notion of computation-one that not only respects the classical (and critical) limiting results about algorithms, grammars, complexity bounds, etc., but that also does justice to real-world concerns of daily computational practice, and thereby offersa much better chance of serving as a possible foundation for a realistic theory of mind.  The workshop section focused on the prospects for developing a theory that takes computing not to be not abstract, syntactic, disembodied, isolated, and non-intentional, but concrete, semantic, embodied, interactive, and intentional.

The proceedings have been published by MIT Press: Computationalism - New Directions (edited by Matthias Scheutz)
