We have been carefully monitoring news and updates from the Japanese government on coronavirus, and tried our best to make the conference happen. However, following the latest recommendations from the government, OIST just announced that we should suspend all public events, including workshops and conferences, until at least April 29.

Deadline extension!

The deadline of submissions has been extended by 1 week to Friday, January 17, 2020.

Call for participation in ECogS 2020

The International Conference on Embodied Cognitive Science (ECogS) will bring together approaches that are theoretically and methodologically diverse yet united in their commitment to an alternative orientation, one in which embodied interaction plays the primary organizing role of life, mind, and consciousness. The aim of this conference series is to facilitate the development of this new orientation in both conceptual and experimental terms.
