Spatial Cognition is concerned with the acquisition, organization, and utilization of knowledge about spatial objects and environments, be it real, virtual, or abstract, human or machine. Spatial Cognition comprises research in different scientific fields insofar as they are concerned with cognitive agents and space, such as cognitive psychology, linguistics, computer science, geography, philosophy, or education.

We are seeking submission for full or half day Tutorials, Workshops, and Symposia, on topics related to the main conference theme. These include but are not limited to:

* Development of spatial knowledge
* Spatial education and learning
* Aging and spatial performance
* Spatial language and communication
* Spatial problem solving and reasoning
* Spatial assistance systems and applications
* Geospatial information science and systems
* Representations and processing of spatial information
* Virtual and augmented spaces
* Biology-inspired agents
* Robotic and human localization, navigation, way finding
* Mapping and exploration
* Motion and path planning
* Learning for robotic Systems
* Human-Robot Interaction
* spatial interaction and collaboration

 

Tutorials are defined as a seminar style lecture that ideally interactively addresses a central topic but does not solicit contributions from attendees beforehand. To submit a tutorial proposal, please submit a pdf with the following:

1. A cover page (1-page max) with:– the title of the tutorial– the names and contact information for all organizers– whether it will be a half or full-day tutorial¬†2.

— if needed, a list of any technical equipment, supplies, etc. required for the workshop

3. A Call for Participation (500 words max), which will be used to advertise the workshop on the Spatial Cognition 2018 conference website.

Note: If accepted, workshop organizers are expected to distribute their call for papers and solicit papers for submission.

 

Symposia are organized, themed session with pre-selected presenters. To submit a symposium proposal, please submit a pdf with the following:

1. A cover page (1-page max) with:– the title of the symposium– the names and contact information for all organizers– whether it will be a half or full-day symposium

 

  1. A description of the topic and rationale for the symposium (2-pages max), including:
