The 16th conference of the Swedish Cognitive Science Society will be held online from Skövde. As a result of the ongoing pandemic, this years conference will be fully virtual. SweCog 2021 takes place between Wednesday November 10th and Friday November 12th. The main program will cover afternoons only, approximately from 13.00 to 17.30.
We are happy to announce the following invited speakers:
- Mel Slater, Distinguished Investigator at the University of Barcelona.
- Virpi Roto, Professor of Practice, Alto University.
- Agneta Gulz, Professor of Cognitive Science at Lund University and Linköping University
Call for Participation
SweCog invites both full oral presentations and short poster talks. We invite submissions covering all areas of cognitive science. If you would like to present, please submit a presentation abstract or a short paper, following the specification stated below. Desired presentation form (oral or poster talk) can be indicated when submitting.
The past year has been exceptional to say the least. For many of us doing research within the cognitive sciences, the ongoing pandemic has offered significant challenges — but also new possibilities. Empirical work has for obvious reasons been difficult, especially when human participants are involved. As a way to acknowledge this, we would like to encourage theoretical contributions as well as contributions covering planned or on-going research studies.
The second day of the conference, November 11, will comprise a special session on Cognition and UX, acknowledging the World Usability Day where this year's theme is Trust, Ethics and Integrity. We therefore specifically welcome contributions on that theme.
If the number of submitted oral presentations exceed the number of slots, priority will be given based on scientific quality as well as geographical and topical spread.
For both full presentation and short poster talks, an abstract of up to 200 words should be submitted as plain text along with the conference registration. All accepted abstracts are included in the conference proceedings, which are published online.
Short paper submission
In addition to your abstract, you may submit a short paper developing its content. Submitted manuscripts will undergo single blinded review primarily focused on providing constructive feedback to the author. Accepted contributions will be included in the SweCog 2021 conference proceedings.
Short paper submissions should be written using our provided formatting template, covering 1 to 3 pages including images and references. Manuscripts are submitted in PDF format.
Participants accepted for oral presentation are asked to prepare a 15 minute presentation, preferably using PowerPoint or similar visual support. An additional 5 minutes is reserved for questions. Presentations will be given over Zoom. Detailed instructions for where to connect, test your video and audio setup, etc. will be previded shortly before the start of the conferencfe.
Participants accepted for poster presentation are asked to prepare a short teaser talk as well as a poster as a PDF-file. Make sure that the poster is readable when displayed in full size on a normal computer screen.
Teaser talks are given over Zoom, limited to 2 minutes, and serve to invite participants to the main poster session. Posters are submitted via email (email@example.com) no later than the deadline (see important dates). Posters will be displayed by the char during the poster talks. The poster sessions will be conducted in SpatialChat where all posters will be available. Detailed instructions come closer to the conference.

Invited speaker: Agneta Gulz
Introducing learning science to teacher students (at Swedish universities). In the presentation I will go through the topics from my two introductory lectures on “learning science” for teacher students. The lectures, targeting students at the end of their first year, have so far only been given one time; thus there is much leeway to modify and change them. I look forward to ideas and comments from the audience, not least those who have experiences from teacher education.
