Values and Cognition

The 19th AISC Conference will focus on the relationship between values and cognition, a topic that defines a heterogenous set of problems that cuts across the various souls of cognitive science, in a truly interdisciplinary perspective. What role do values play within cognitive science research? What ethical and social repercussions do the most recent discoveries in AI, neuroscience, cognitive and comparative psychology have? What cognitive processes are involved in aesthetic and moral judgements? How is evaluative language processed? To properly address such questions, a variety of viewpoints, coming from AI, linguistics, neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology are needed. We welcome presentations on the state of the art and on ongoing research, as well as presentations on perspectives that encourage interdisciplinary dialogue among the various subdisciplines of cognitive science.
