Diagnosi, spiegazione e intervento

11 Dicembre 2020, 14:30 – 18:00
L’incontro avverrà su piattaforma Webex

Siete tutti invitati al quinto seminario del ciclo “Modelli della Mente. Fondamenti concettuali e metodologici”, organizzato da AISC – Associazione Italiana di Scienze Cognitive, RobotiCSS Lab, Associazione Yunik aps, Progetto Horizon 2020 Communities for Science (C4S).

La ricerca sulle applicazioni della robotica per la comprensione e per il potenziamento delle abilità cognitive delle persone nello spettro
autistico è ampia e multidisciplinare. Nei suoi aspetti teorici e sperimentali, essa coinvolge una fruttuosa interazione tra laboratori universitari, centri di ricerca, associazioni e cooperative che operano sul territorio, istituti scolastici, istituzioni. Il seminario presenterà alcune recenti ricerche di respiro internazionale, stimolando la discussione tra accademia e mondo delle professioni sanitarie e socio-educative. Il convegno è rivolto soprattutto a studentesse e studenti, ricercatrici e ricercatori di area filosofica, psicologica e pedagogica, educatrici/educatori professionali, insegnanti, pedagogisti, operatrici/operatori psico-pedagogici.

Next Conference

“Cognitive Science meets the Humanities” – Italian Association of Cognitive Science (AISC)
Midterm Conference 2020
May 26th-28th, 2020, University of Parma
postponed to May, 2021

The 2020 Italian Association of Cognitive Science (AISC) Midterm Conference will be held at the University of Parma on May 26th-28th and will be hosted by the Department of Humanities, Social Sciences and Cultural Industries.

The aims of the conference are to evaluate the state of the art with respect to the dialogue between cognitive science and the humanities, and to develop novel ways to foster their connection. These goals will be achieved through interdisciplinary talks, semi-structured symposia, Author-Meets-Critics, etc. The contributions will be focused on investigating the current relation between the “cognitive science hexagon” – i.e. neuroscience, psychology, computer science, linguistics, philosophy and anthropology – and disciplines studying human society and culture, such as literature, law and politics, economics, history, archaeology, visual and performing arts.

We are interested in exploring questions such as: What are the practical contributions of cognitive science to the humanities, and vice versa? Which field of the cognitive sciences has contributed the most to boost research in the humanities? Which area of the humanities would benefit the most from this collaboration? Which areas are in need of further development, and why? What is the role of interdisciplinary research and practice when it comes to devising new paradigms and professional opportunities?

Abstract that were accepted for Parma MidTerm 2020 will be valid for Parma MidTerm 2021.
Moreover, a new call for papers will be published in the next months
.
