Early mAugust 2021, Spatial Cognition 2020 (SC 2020), Riga, Latvia

Date: Early August 2021
Location: Riga, Latvia
Deadline: Saturday 1 February 2020

Spatial Cognition is concerned with the acquisition, development, representation, organization, and use of knowledge about spatial objects in real, virtual or hybrid environments and processed by human or artificial agents. Spatial Cognition includes research from different fields insofar as they are concerned with cognitive agents and space. Research issues in the field range from the investigation of human spatial cognition to mobile robot navigation. SC 2020 will bring together researchers working on spatial cognition from all of these perspectives.

The conference is single-track, and the final program will be the result of a selective review process. The program will include oral and poster presentations of refereed papers, and keynote talks by Sara I. Fabrikant, Steve Franconeri and Laure Rondi-Reig.

Due to the unclear situation regarding COVID-19 and the reluctance of some colleagues to attend any events in August or September, and after discussing several options with the Steering Committee, we have decided to postpone the conference to 2021, likely to the first days of August 2021.

Submissions for Oral Presentations (short papers) presenting original and unpublished work are solicited in all areas of spatial cognition. Short papers should not exceed 1,200 words (including figures, tables, and references). Some short paper submissions may be accepted for poster presentation.

Submissions for Poster Presentations (abstracts) are solicited in all areas of spatial cognition. Poster abstracts should not exceed 500 words (including figures, tables, and references).
