**************************************************

This is based on the International Cognitive Modeling Conference mailing
list, which I maintain.  I've added you to it by hand.  I send the
messages out by hand using some Emacs functions.  The first announcement
is the one that is driving this email, the
announcement of ICCM 2006.   I don't anticipate much more traffic 
though, until the
next ICCM in Trieste in 2006 has its paper call to go out for formally
in the autumn.

I forward messages about twice a year.

cheers,

Frank

1.  2006 International Conf. on Cognitive Modeling
    Thursday, 4 April 2006 to 8 April 2006, in Trieste, Italy

     http://iccm2006.units.it/    or contact  [log in to unmask]

    This continues the series of ICCM conferences.  The last conference
was at Pittsburgh.
    http://simon.lrdc.pitt.edu/~iccm/    This conference will build on 
that one's success.

    Paper submissions (6 pages) provisionally due November 20th, 2005.

2.  Tutorial Program at Cognitive Science 2005, 20 July 2005

   http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/keller/cogsci05/program_tutorials.html

  Tutorials will present tutorial material, that is, provide results
  that are established and will do so in an interactive format. They
  tend to involve an introduction to technical skills or methods.  This
  year the set of tutorials is focused on a range of cognitive
  architectures for modeling and teaching higher-level cognition, and
  on a method for gathering data.  They will include substantial review
of
  material. The level of presentation assumes that the attendees have at
least
  a first degree in a cognate area.

  There is a student rate, and such students must bring their ID to
  show at registration.

  Attendance at the tutorials does not require conference registration,
  but tutorial registration does not provide conference entrance.

  There are five tutorials this year (one with two parts). They are
likely
  to cost about $63 (about 35 pounds or 50 Euros) for each half-day
tutorial
  and 30e ($38) for students. Payment can be made using the registration
site on the
  conference page, or can be paid for on the day (if space is available,
which
  is likely). The program includes handouts, and a tea and a coffee
break
  (including biscuits). There will be a meeting of the tutorial
committee and
  tutors after the tutorials, location to be announced at the tutorials.

3.  Cognitive modeling/human factors/HCI position at Office of Naval
Research
      Contact Susan Chipman for more details.

  Program Officer, Human Factors (Industrial engineer) [closing date, 
1 June 2005]

  The Office of Naval Research is seeking a qualified individual to 
manage sponsored
  basic/applied research, and advanced development program and projects
in the
  broad area of human factors engineering.  The sponsored efforts are 
conducted at
  US universities and industry or Federal Labs.  This is a civil 
service position at the
  GS-14/15 level ($88k-135k) depending on individual qualifications.

  The position requires knowledge and experience in the fundamental 
theories, concepts,
  and current state-of-the art research and/or technology development 
in the areas of
  human systems integration, human factors engineering, and industrial 
engineering
  including but not limited to, human decision making, organizational
design and
  architectures, models for human-computer interaction, including
computational
  models of human cognitive processing.

  For information on qualifications and how to apply, see the job 
announcements at
  our web site http://www.onr.navy.mil/hr.  [direct link:

  Susan writes:

  The quality of the people who end up in these positions is extremely
important
  to the research community as well as to the Navy.  The person in this
position
  will have the opportunity to shape research programs and investments
for
  many years to come.  Program officers at ONR have real power of
decision
  in funding.  In addition, a less visible aspect of their role is 
developing ideas,
  mega-proposals one might say, and obtaining funding for them.  Despite
  the use of the term, "engineer", I am sure that cognitive scientists
[and I
  would suggest, HCI] with many different formal degrees would be able
to get
  this position, as long as they have appropriate expertise. The
government
  never has absolute degree requirements. Application of cognitive
modeling
  to human systems integration is of particular interest.
