THIRTEENTH ANNUAL ACT-R SUMMER SCHOOL
Carnegie Mellon University
July 15-20, 2006


ACT-R is a cognitive theory and simulation system for developing  
cognitive models for tasks that vary from simple reaction time to air  
traffic control. The most recent advances of the ACT-R theory were  
detailed in a recent paper (Anderson, J. R., Bothell, D., Byrne, M.  
D., Douglass, S., Lebiere, C., & Qin, Y . (2004). An integrated  
theory of the mind. Psychological Review 111, (4). 1036-1060,  
available online: http://act-r.psy.cmu.edu/publications/pubinfo.php? 
id=526)

Each year, a summer school is held to train researchers in the use of  
the ACT-R system. The summer school will be followed by a three day  
workshop (July 21-23) during which ACT-R researchers will meet and  
present their work. Details of this workshop will be announced later.

The summer school will take place from Saturday July 15 to Thursday  
July 20. This intensive 6-day course is designed to train researchers  
in the use of ACT-R for cognitive modeling. It is structured as a set  
of six units, with each unit lasting a day and involving a morning  
theory lecture, a web-based tutorial, an afternoon discussion session  
and a homework assignment which participants are expected to complete  
during the day and evening.  Computing facilities will be provided.

To provide an optimal learning environment, admission is limited to a  
dozen participants, who must submit by April 14 an application  
consisting of a curriculum vitae and a statement of purpose.   
Demonstrated experience with a modeling formalism similar to ACT-R  
will strengthen the application. Applicants will be notified of  
admission by May 4. Admission to the summer school is free. Housing  
will be provided in the CMU dormitories for approximately $50/day  
(single) or $25/day (shared).

More information, including papers published by the ACT-R community,  
can be found on the ACT-R web site (http://act-r.psy.cmu.edu/).

A registration form is appended below.  Additional information  
(detailed schedule, etc.) will appear on the ACT-R Web site: http://
