Montréal hosts CogSci 2019
Montréal is forging the path forward in the fields of neuroscience, AI, cardiology and the full spectrum of life sciences, and the city is home to some of the world’s top minds and their research. Bringing together the leading cognitive science thinkers to Montréal’s conference centre the Palais des congrès de Montréal, the annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society (CogSci 2019 for short) comes to Montréal from July 24-27, 2019.
Creativity + Cognition + Computation
Through a packed schedule of workshops, tutorials, presentations and collaborative networking events, CogSci 2019’s theme of Creativity + Cognition + Computation aims to fully explore the present and map out the future of cognitive science research and emerging technologies. Featuring presentations from groundbreaking researchers like plenary speakers Elizabeth Churchill (Director of User Experience at Google), Mary Lou Maher (Chair of the Department of Software and Information Systems at the University of North Carolina) and Takeshi Okada (Professor at the Interfaculty Initiative in Information Studies at the University of Tokyo), the Palais des congrès is the place to be for cognitive scientists.
Tourisme Montréal offers incoming conferences and meetings direct interaction and collaborative opportunities for visiting guests and attendees with top researchers and organizations in the city, building bridges and fostering innovation, and that’s just one of the reasons why Montréal is a perfect fit for your next scientific meeting or event. And here’s a few more Montréal advantages we know you’ll love:
- We’re well connected: Listed as one of the Skytrax World Airport Awards’ Top 10 Airports in North America, YUL Montréal-Trudeau International Airport is Canada’s most international airport with direct service to 150 destinations across the globe.
- We’re easy to navigate: A distinctly walkable city, there’s a world to explore within 10-minutes on foot of the Palais des congrès. There’s also the BIXI bike-sharing system and Montréal’s easy to access Métro subway system that makes getting around a snap.
- We’re redefining city living: Montréal’s Smart and Digital City office’s focus on new ideas in urban planning has fostered open and forward thinking to what cities of the future can and will look like. And Montréal’s status as an UNESCO City of Design keeps us on the cutting edge of innovation and city life that all visitors love to explore.
