The 2022 Italian Association of Cognitive Science (AISC) midterm Conference will be held at the University of Parma on June 22-24 and will be hosted by the Department of Humanities, Social Sciences and Cultural Industries (DUSIC).
This will be an in-person event.

Conference Topics

In recent decades research in cognitive science has witnessed an upsurge of interest in affective phenomena such as emotions, feelings ,and moods, and the role they play in guiding cognitive, motivational, and decision-making processes. The aim of this conference is to improve our understanding of affective phenomena and of the relation between cognition and affectivity by bringing together scholars from the humanities and the natural sciences.

We are interested in exploring a broad range of questions, including the following: How do affective and cognitive phenomena interact in human and nonhuman animals? How may we better understand and describe the complex relationship between affective states (emotions, moods, etc.) and cognitive states (beliefs, thoughts, etc.)? What happens when such a relationship becomes disrupted? What is the role of cognitive science in exploring affective phenomena? What is the role of interdisciplinary research and practice when it comes to devising new paradigms and professional opportunities in the field of affective science?

How to get to Parma

Milano Linate and Bologna are the most convenient airports. We are looking into direct shuttle options, but both airports are connected with train stations - Milano Centrale and Bologna respectively - where you can find fairly frequent rides to Parma (more or less every hour, for a 1-hour ride).

The conference is going to take place in the city center (via d'Azeglio 85), where the Humanities department is located. There are several hotel as well as Airbnb options nearby. Just to get you started, these two hotels are walking distance from the University (10-15 mins): Hotel Button and Hotel Savoy.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any assistance.
