Beijing, China

Call for Papers (the first announcement)

The 7th International Conference on Cognitive Science (ICCS2010) will be held in Beijing on August
17-20, 2010. We invite submissions from all contributing disciplines within Cognitive Science,
including but not limited to:
Animal Cognition
Cognitive Anthropology
Cognitive Modeling
Cognitive Neuroscience
Cognitive Psychology
Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence
Functional Brain Imaging
Social Cognition


ICCS2010 will be held in Beijing, China, at the China National Convention Center (CNCC; CNCC is located at the center of the park of Olympia Green, adjoining the
epic Bird Nest (China National Stadium) and the magic Water Cube (National Aquatics Center). It is
easily accessible by subway (Line 8) and more than 20 bus lines, taking you quickly to and from
every corner of Beijing, such as the Forbidden City & Tiananmen Square, Summer Palace, Heaven
Temple, etc.
We would like to highlight here that the World EXPO 2010 (, the largest
world-wide event after 2008 Olympic Games involving more than 200 countries, will be taking place
in Shanghai in parallel to ICCS2010.
For accommodation, CNCC’'s hotel (4-star rated) and Intercontinental Hotel (5-star rated) are
recommended. Both hotels are immediately adjacent to CNCC, and offer very competitive rates to
ICCS participants. A more economic choice, while uncompromised in quality, is Huiyuan Service
Apartments. It is located within a distance of 2km, and a complementary shuttle bus is available.
Walking a few minutes from CNCC to the east, you will find dozens of restaurants covering most of
Chinese food varieties. At the north of the Olympia Green you enter the beautiful Olympia Forest
Park where the natural atmosphere will refresh your mind from the intensive meetings at ICCS.
