2011 Cognitive Informatics Conference

The Doctorate in Cognitive Informatics and the Cognitive Science Institute of the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) organized, on June 2 and 2, 2011, their annual conference in Cognitive Informatics in Montreal.

This year's theme was "Cognitive Informatics and its place in the industry"

This meeting, held between students, researchers and professionals, had the goal of presenting a panorama of the latest advances made in Cognitive Informatics on one hand (current research and the main domains of application), and, on the other hand, to present the application of this research in the industrial domain. One day was dedicated to conference talks on the theme and the other was regarding various current themes in cognitive informatics. Student posters were presented in parallel during the talks.
