Philosophy and Mathematics of Situated Agency – June 5-8, 2023, Oulu

The Philosophy and Mathematics of Situated Agency Conference, is organised by UBICOMP and takes place in Oulu, between June 5-8. The event brings together world-leading thinkers in the fields of cognitive science, philosophy of mind, mathematics of cognition, and robotics. Recent advances in computational neuroscience, enactivist cognition and artificial intelligence enable – and also necessitate – profoundly new ways of thinking of perception and cognitive agents within their environment.  This conference focuses on the embeddedness of the mind, shedding light on the role of context and the structure of affording situations. It offers a platform for profound conversation about these and related themes, across traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Keynote speakers:

Prof. Daniel Hutto –  University of Wollongong (Philosophical Psychology, Enactivism)

Dr. Inês Hipólito – Humboldt University of Berlin (Philosophy of Mind, Cognitive Science)

Prof. Antonio Bicchi –  Italian Institute of Technology (Robotics)

Prof. Steven M. LaValle – University of Oulu (Robotics, VR)

The call for abstracts will be opened until April 10, 2023.
