SweCog 2019 in Umeå
The 15th SweCog conference of the Swedish Cognitive Science Society will be held in Umeå. The conference is free for all members and will take place between Thursday November 7th and Friday November 8th.
We are happy to announce the following invited speakers for the conference:
- Ronald van den Berg, Senior lecturer at the Department of Psychology, Stockholm University.
- Paolo Medini, Senior lecturer at the Department of Integrative Medical Biology, Umeå University.

Call for Participation
SweCog invites both oral and poster presentations. We invite submissions covering all areas of cognitive science. If you would like to present, please provide a presentation abstract (up to 200 words) including a presentation title and a brief summary of your work. On-going projects are especially welcome.
Oral and poster presentation abstracts are submitted as plain text along with the conference registration. Abstracts can be submitted/updated also after registration if you prefer (see Important Dates below). Desired presentation form (oral or poster) can be indicated when submitting. Accepted abstracts are included in the conference proceedings.
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.
Optional short paper submission
If you want, you may also submit a short paper, not mandatory for presentation. We invite submissions covering all areas of cognitive science. Submitted manuscripts will undergo single blinded review and accepted contributions will be included in the Swecog 2019 conference proceedings. Submissions describing on-going work are especially welcome.
Short paper submissions should be written using our provided formatting template, covering 1 to 3 pages including images and references. All submissions will be subject to a single-blinded review primarily focused on providing constructive feedback to the author.
Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Authors can either submit at registration time or later (by logging in to the member page).
