The conference aims to provide discussions on key issues of interdisciplinary cognitive research related to cognition, intelligence, mind, language and speech, acquisition and implementation of skills and knowledge, brain mechanisms of mental activity and complex behaviours. Traditionally, the conference is attended by a wide range of researchers from various scientific fields: psychology, linguistics, neurophysiology and psychophysiology, biology, pedagogy, neuroinformatics and computer science, philosophy, anthropology, etc.
The program of the X International Conference on Cognitive Science will feature reports and review lectures by leading experts of the interdisciplinary cognitive research.

Key dates of the conference
In response to numerous inquiries regarding the possibility of participating in the conference remotely (online), we would like to inform you that the Program Committee has decided to provide such an option for conference participants. Consequently, there will be a slight extension of the abstract submission deadline until February 22, 2024.
  • February 22, 2024 – abstract submission deadline
  • April 02, 2024 – accepted abstracts are announced
  • May 13, 2024 – registration fees are accepted
  • June 20, 2024 – deadline for registration fees
  • June 01, 2024 – mandatory confirmation of participation
  • June 26, 2024 – registration of participants at the conference venue
Abstract Submission Guidelines:

  1. Special attention will be given to the interdisciplinary nature of the research and the clarity of abstracts for representatives from other fields during the selection of presentations. Only the abstracts of the selected presentations for participation in the conference will be published in the conference proceedings.
  2. Abstracts should be prepared in Russian or English. Each conference participant can submit a maximum of one oral and one poster presentation or two poster presentations. When submitting abstracts, please indicate your preferred presentation format – oral or poster – in the application.
  3. The total length of the abstracts should not exceed 2 pages. The review and selection of presentations are carried out by the Program Committee of the conference. The works are published in the conference proceedings (indexed in the RSCI). Abstracts are submitted only through the LOMONOSOV system at https://lomonosov-msu.ru/eng/event/8145
  4. Uploading abstracts into the system does not automatically guarantee the publication of your abstracts. Only the abstracts of the presentations selected by the Program Committee will be published in the conference proceedings. Abstracts will be included only if the personal participation of one of the authors/co-authors in the conference is confirmed.
  5. The accepted abstracts of conference participants, after the review, will be published as they were uploaded to the system. After the review, minor edits may be accepted, such as adding a grant number. Grant references should be formatted as a numbered footnote to the presentation title (at the bottom of the first page).
Decisions of the Program Committee will be communicated by March 15, 2024.

Interregional Association of Cognitive Studies (IACS)
The mission of the Interregional Public Organization "Association of Cognitive Studies" (IACS) is to promote cognitive science as a discipline and facilitate scientific exchange among researchers in various fields, including neurobiology, linguistics, psychology, philosophy, and artificial intelligence.

A key part of our mission involves strengthening collaboration among scientists engaged in brain research, informing the scientific community about the current state of cognitive science in Russia and abroad, and attracting young scholars to this field.
IACS organizes and co-organizes major scientific conferences dedicated to brain research, including the International Conference on Cognitive Science, the series of scientific meetings "Cognitive Studies," the National Congress on Cognitive Studies, Artificial Intelligence, and Neuroinformatics.

The Association includes distinguished Russian scientists—academicians, professors, and laboratory heads—as well as young researchers actively involved in cognitive studies and interested in brain research.
