CompCog: Complexity and Cognition. Satellite @CCS2021L

Background. Cognition arises from multiple mental and biological processes which regulate the acquisition, perception and use of information. Understanding cognitive processes and their biological counterparts poses several, interconnected research challenges, attracting the attention of computational fields like cognitive neuroscience, network science, AI and data science in addition to endeavours from psychology, linguistics, medicine and the humanities.

Aim. Within the above mosaic of cognitive research lines, it is difficult for researchers to be aware of results recently obtained by colleagues in other fields, thus creating a fragmented landscape of research achievements and gaps. Complexity and Cognition aims at creating new opportunities for research exchange, constructive feedback and paper dissemination among researchers interested in cognition and complexity science. This online symposium addresses the need for transdisciplinary researchers working on cognition to overcome discipline-restrictive boundaries, showcasing the benefits and value that systems thinking and complexity science can bring to the cognitive sciences.

Scope. Complexity and Cognition aligns with the scope of the Conference on Complex Systems (CCS) and will reach multiple relevant research communities of interest for CCS, across cognitive, data, complexity and network sciences
