Join us for the 12th Biannual Conference - "KogWis 2014"!

The conference will take place at the Kupferbau of the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen, in Tübingen, Germany.


Tübingen is renown for its Neuroscience Centers (Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN), Hertie Institue for Clinical Brain Research, Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience), its Clinical Facilities, its Max-Planck Research Institutes on Intelligent Systems, Developmental Biology, and Biological Cybernetics, its Linguistics Research Focus on the Construction of Meaning, its new Cognitive Science program, among others.


Besides, Tübingen is a wonderful Swabian city with an historic old town center, a beautiful country side (e.g. Swabian Jura, Nature reserve Schönbuch Forest), and diverse recreational options. Thus, we recommend to come a little earlier or stay a little longer and add a few days of holidays to your trip to Tübingen.
