20 July 2011, Workshop "Optimality Theory as a General Cognitive Architecture", Boston, Massachusetts

Date: Wednesday 20 July 2011
Location: Boston, Massachusetts
Deadline: 20 May 2011

Optimality Theory has been a very popular approach to linguistic phenomena, but how does it relate to (higher) cognition in general? Twenty-five years after the publication of Harmony Theory (Smolensky, 1986), and five years after The Harmonic Mind (Smolensky and Legendre, 2006), this half-day workshop at the 33rd annual meeting of the Cognitive Science Society offers an opportunity to discuss the place of OT (and HG, and the ICS Architecture) within the cognitive sciences at large, as well as applications of OT to domains beyond linguistics.

Deadline for poster submissions: May 20, 2011.
