IKW reloaded: Farewell Westerberg - welcome Wachsbleiche!

After more than 10 years on Westerberg, our Institute of Cognitive Science will leave its current location and move to a new site: Wachsbleiche 27, 49090 Osnabrück. This will happen from 8th to 12th August, with a necessary IT infrastructure outage starting already on 3rd August.

Please be aware that within this timeframe the IKW server will be down and thus the IKW staff and research groups cannot be contacted by email or phone. For any urgent issues that cannot wait until August 15th, please make sure to deal with them in good time!

We are looking forward to welcoming you soon at our new residence.

What is Cognitive Science? - Der Film zum "Handbuch Kognitionswissenschaft"

In dem durch ein Studienprojekt entstandenen Film "What is Cognitive Science?" wird in 80 Minuten erklärt, was die Studenten und Studentinnen an ihrem Studiengang interessant finden.
Der Film ist sowohl sehenswert für echte CogScis als auch besonders für interessierte Laien und natürlich für diejenigen, die bisher keine zufriedenstellende Antwort auf die Frage erhalten haben: "Kognitionswissenschaft? Was ist das eigentlich?".
