  • Proceedings of the

    Twenty-Sixth Annual Conference

    of the Cognitive Science Society

    Kenneth Forbus, Dedre Gentner and Terry Regier Editors August 4-7, 2004 Chicago, Illinois USA


    These proceedings hold the talks, posters, tutorials, and symposia presented at the 26th annual meeting of the Cognitive Science Society. The conference took place in Chicago, Illinois, at the Westin River North Hotel, August 4-7, 2004. Each year, the CogSci conference chairs highlight a particular area of cognitive science we chose to highlight higher-order cognition. This is reflected in our choice of Susan Goldin-Meadow and Doug Medin as our two plenary speakers, and Larry Barsalou and Art Markman for a debate on embodied cognition, as well as in the themes of the invited symposia: language and thought, qualitative reasoning, higher-order cognitive neuroscience, and large-scale representation systems. The rest of the program was determined by the submissions we received, and by the reviewers enthusiasm for them. In total, we received 370 submissions of 6-page papers, publication-based abstracts, and symposia. Of these, 115 were accepted for presentation as a talk or symposium, and 150 were accepted for poster presentation. We also received over 150 member abstract submissions, which by design were only lightly reviewed, and almost all of which were accepted. Chairing a CogSci conference is a lot of work! We couldnt have done it without a lot of help from many people. We would especially like to thank the following:

    The Governing Board, for inviting us to chair the meeting. The Program Committee, for managing the review process. The almost 500 reviewers, for providing professional reviews. Wayne Gray, for helpful advice on all aspects of conference organization. Chris Schunn and Rick Alterman, for their advice as chairs from earlier years. Frank Ritter, for organizing and coordinating the tutorial program. Frank Lee, for coordinating the student volunteers. Deborah Gruber, for her help with local arrangements and the proceedings. Jonathan Cohen and Jennifer Stedillie, for coordinating conference preparation. James Stewart, for heroic responsiveness in operating the reviewing website. The student volunteers at Northwestern University and the University of Chicago, especially Fey

    Parrill (UC) and Kate Lockwood (NU). Dan Veksler, for producing a roommate-matching website at very short notice. Ken Nielsen, for designing the poster. Rebecca Asburst, for creating the logo, and Kathleen Braun, for designing the T-shirt. Our sponsors: The Robert J. Glushko and Pamela Samuelson Foundation; Northwestern University;

    ONR; DARPA; AFRL; the University of Chicago; CHI Systems; and Trends in Cognitive Sciences.

    The plenary speakers, Susan Goldin-Meadow and Doug Medin. The debaters, Larry Barsalou and Art Markman. And above all, the authors, symposium participants, and attendees.
