              TENTH ANNUAL ACT-R SUMMER SCHOOL AND WORKSHOP
               ==============================================

                   Carnegie Mellon University - July 2003
                   ======================================


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 the
recent book "The Atomic Components of Thought" by John R. Anderson and
Christian Lebiere, published in 1998 by Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, and in
a paper available online
(http://act-r.psy.cmu.edu/papers/403/IntegratedTheory.pdf).  Each year, a
three-day workshop is held to enable new and current users to exchange
research results and ideas.  The Tenth Annual ACT-R Summer School and
Workshop will be held at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh in July
2003.

The workshop will take place from Friday July 25 at 9am to Sunday July 27
at noon.  Mornings will be devoted to research presentations, each lasting
about 20 minutes plus questions.  Participants are invited to present their
ACT-R research by submitting a one-page abstract with their registration.
Afternoons will feature more research presentations as well as discussion
sessions and instructional tutorials.  Suggestions for the topics of the
tutorials and discussion sessions are welcome.  Friday afternoon will
feature a presentation by the invited speaker, James McClelland of Carnegie
Mellon University, titled "Symbolic and Sub-symbolic cognition: What is the
relation?"

Admission to the workshop is open to all.  The early registration fee
(before July 1) is $100 and the late registration fee (after July 1) is
$125.  Informal proceedings of past workshops can be found on the ACT-R web
site (http://act-r.psy.cmu.edu/workshops/).  Requests for presentations
should be submitted before July 1 to receive full consideration for
inclusion in the workshop program.  A preliminary program of presentations
will be made available in early July.  The workshop is scheduled to just
precede the Cognitive Science conference which takes place in Boston from
July 30 to August 3 (http://www.cognitivesciencesociety.org/cogsci.html).
Housing and computing facilities will be provided at CMU from July 27 to 30
for workshop participants who wish to stay on to work on their ACT-R
projects and collaborate with other researchers until the start of Cogsci.

A registration form is appended below.  Additional information (detailed
schedule, etc.) will appear on the ACT-R Web site when available or can be
requested at:
