Chemnitz Symposium on Cognitive Systems

Thursday, 13 September 2018

Technische Universität Chemnitz
Altes Heizhaus, Straße der Nationen 62, 09111  Chemnitz

This symposium will focus on interdisciplinary research related to cognitive systems (artificial or biological). In particular, we
are interested in understanding how cognitive systems can detect helplessness in human subjects.

  • Eight talks will show current research on these topics and promote discussion in the audience.
  • Audience members are also invited to present their work in poster format.
  • This symposium is free and aimed at researchers and students interested in Cognitive systems.
