The Doctoral Program in Cognitive Informatics (DIC in French) aims at the highly qualified education of students that come from different domains, in order for them to become specialists in cognitive modeling. Our students will have also acquired knowledge and developed interdisciplinary skills that enable them to:
  • model complex phenomena from a cognitive viewpoint

  • conceptualize a problem from a computer science viewpoint

  • determine the best technological means to process it.

Professors and researchers from the following areas share the students' education and supervision: Communication, Computer Science, Linguistics, Management and Technology, Philosophy, Psychology, Educational Sciences.
