2nd Call for papers: SCSMI film cognition conference, London June 17-20th 2015


Society for Cognitive Studies of the Moving Image (SCSMI) Conference
June 17-20th 2015
Birkbeck, University of London
London, UK

The Society for Cognitive Studies of the Moving Image (SCSMI) invites proposals for presentations at its annual conference, to be held June 17th to 20th, 2015, at Birkbeck, University of London. A key criterion for selection is that proposed presentations should facilitate the society’s mission: “To encourage research into and theorizing about moving images in the context of the findings and theoretical constructs of cognitive science, as well as related issues in art theory, philosophy, literary theory, and perceptual and cognitive psychology.” A proposal may be for a long paper presentation (25 min presentation + 25 min discussion), a short paper presentation (18 min presentation + 5 min discussion), or a poster/demonstration.

The deadline for proposals is midnight (GMT) December 22nd, 2014. Further submission details can be found in the on-line CFP: http://scsmionline.wpengine.com/conference/call-for-papers

Confirmed keynote speakers include Prof. Vittorio Gallese (Uni. of Parma, Italy) and Dr. Stacie Friend (Birkbeck, UK).

**UPDATE: We are also happy to be able to offer a handful of student and early career awards courtesy of a generous grant from the British Society of Aesthetics (BSA). Further information is available here:
