The international symposium “The Emergent Disturbed Mind: From Complex Systems to Action” will take place on 27 June 2019. A multidisciplinary selection of speakers will cover a wide range of important topics, such as a deeper look at the concept emergence, ways to promote resilience against psychiatric problems, or the use of fundamental cognitive science to understand mental health problems.

The symposium also features a poster session, for which abstract submission is open now until June 1st. In addition, the symposium will conclude with a lecture from the Visiting Honorary Chair in Cognitive Science. The Honorary Chair of this year has been awarded to Dr. Greg Siegle, a leading expert in cognitive affective neuroscience.

Poster session submissions can be from any field relevant to the study of brain and cognition, e.g. neurobiology, cognitive neuroscience, psychology, linguistics or philosophy. The presented research should tie in with with the overall theme of complex systems and networks.
