Date: 4-6 October 2016
Location: Bochum, Germany
Deadline: 20 July 2016

Ruhr-University Bochum is hosting the interdisciplinary workshop "Rational animals? Comparing human and animal minds from an interdisciplinary perspective". The workshop will offer three keynote lectures and will be organized in four symposia, each tackling one core aspect of comparative cognition research from both philosophical and empirical perspective.

The four symposia are
a) cultural evolution & social learning,
b) causal understanding and means-end reasoning,
c) theory of mind, and
d) the anthropological difference.

In addition to the invited symposia and keynote lectures we reserved a limited number of slots for paper presentations and a poster session for which we invite submissions on any topic related to animal rationality (empirical or philosophical). The new deadline for submissions is July 20th 2016.
