Spatial Cognition 2018: Final Call for Papers

The Spatial Cognition Conference 2018 (SC 2018) will be held in Tuebingen,
Germany, 5-8 September 2018. Spatial Cognition is a transdisciplinary
conference that will bring together researchers working on a diverse set of
topics using a plethora of methods addressing, for example, biologically
inspired systems, spatial learning, communication, interaction, robotics,
perception or place. In the finest tradition of fostering transdisciplinary
exchange, the conference is organized as a single-track. The final program
and the associated proceedings will be the result of a selective review
process and will include invited talks as well as oral and poster
presentations of refereed submissions. The main conference will be
accompanied by one day of workshops and tutorials, poster presentation
sessions, as well as a doctoral student session. Every effort is being made
to keep conference expenses affordable, particularly for student attendees.
Papers presented at the conference will be published Springer Lecture Notes
in Artificial Intelligence.

Information for Authors
Full paper track: All papers submitted will be thoroughly peer reviewed by
a minimum of three members of the international program committee. A
selection of high quality papers will be accepted for both presentation at
the conference and published as Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence by
Springer. It is essential that manuscripts must describe original work that
has neither been published nor should it currently be under review in a
different outlet. The language of the conference, including the
proceedings, is English and papers should be written in an acceptable
style. Papers need to be formatted according to Springer Lecture Note Style
and paper length should not exceed 15 pages. For more details, refer to the
formatting instructions below.
Posters: Poster submissions in form of extended abstracts are welcome to
showcase work in progress, polished ideas, or emerging themes. Abstracts
should not exceed 500 words and should be formatted in the same way as full
papers (see below). Poster abstracts will be made available as unpublished
poster proceedings.
Proceedings: Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence

conference management system. Formatted papers should be submitted as PDF
through the corresponding website on easychair. (see website)
Final submission. Accepted papers that have undergone revisions should be
submitted through easy chair.
Formatting Instructions (all submissions)
Formatting instructions for all submissions (full paper, poster, workshop
proposals, and doctoral colloquium) are following Springer Lecture Notes in
