Call for Participation

SweCog invites both oral and poster presentations, covering all areas of cognitive science. We welcome presentations of on-going work as well as recently finished studies. 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) can be indicated when submitting. To avoid duplicates, only the presenting author submits the contribution. For joint presentations or other specific requests, please contact organizers over email.

Abstract submission

Submitted abstracts should be up to 200 words as plain text along with the conference registration. All accepted abstracts are included in the SweCog conference proceedings, which are published online.

Short paper submission

Submitted short paper manuscripts should be written using the provided formatting template, covering 1 to 4 pages including figures. References are not consdered in the page limit. Manuscripts are submitted in PDF format.

Submitted short papers will be reviewed by two external reviewers, focusing on providing constructive feedback to the author. Accepted contributions will be included in the SweCog conference proceedings. The review process is by default fully open, revealing both authors and reviewers names. Reviewers can however request to be anonymous. Authors of accepted contributions will also be asked to revise their short papers based on the review before submitting the final, camera ready, version.


Oral presentation
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. If the number of submitted oral presentations exceeds the number of slots, priority will be given to short papers, while considering scientific quality, topical spread, and speaker diversity.

Poster presentation
Participants accepted for poster presentation are asked to prepare a poster that you print and bring to the conference. Details on poster size will be provided closer to the conference.
