This is a flipped workshop with two ways to participate:

Before CogSci (Virtual)

Before CogSci 2023, we will be hosting four virtual seminars on abstraction with a special focus on Causality, Perception/Action, Language and Memory. These talks will be streamed online via Zoom for free, allowing attendees to fully experience this component of the workshop from anywhere in the world. These talks will also be recorded and available online for asynchronous viewing afterwards. See the Schedule for more details and registration links.

At CogSci (Sydney, Australia)

At the CogSci conference, we will present video recaps of highlights from our virtual seminars, hold really productive small-group discussions, and host a super engaging panel discussion. Please find the detailed schedule below.
