Call for Posters


Interdisciplinary Workshop


“Knowledge and Performance in the Perception of Objects and Living Beings”

Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF), Bielefeld

October 29-31, 2009

at Bielefeld University

The philosophical conceptions of perception and cognition have undergone a critical transformation in recent debates. Perception is no longer thought to be a pure “input mechanism” enabling the mind to make rational judgments on the nature of things. Rather, its integral relation to action and higher cognition has become the focus of investigation, keeping pace with new developments in cognition research. The conference aims to clarify the mutual relations between perceptual experience, prior knowledge, and action capacities.

Talks will be given by experts from the fields of philosophy of mind, cognitive science, psychology, and computer science.

We welcome POSTER submissions.  Posters will be displayed throughout the conference as well as at a designated poster session. Please send an extended abstract (600 words max.) or finished Poster (PDF) via email to If you are going to present an empirical study please send in addition to the abstract two to three power point slides displaying the central results of the study. Deadline for submission is September 25 2009. Acceptance will be announced by October 1 2009. Selected contributors can ask for support (accommodation) by the ZiF.

If you are interested in participating, please register until October, 15 2009 via email to:
