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 17.00.
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.
Details on the exact form of the oral presentations and short poster talks will come later.
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.
Registration and submission
Registration for SweCog 2021 is free of charge. Both abstracts and short papers are submitted through this webpage, along with your registrations. Submissions may also be updated later by logging in to your SweCog member's page.
