  • Cognitive Education
  • Cognitive Linguistics
  • Philosophy of Mind
  • Artificial Intelligence and Modeling
  • Brain Mapping and Neuroimaging
  • Cognitive Rehabilitation
  • Cognitive Assessment
  • Clinical Neurocognitive (with emphasis on Autism Spectrum Disorders and Alzheimer Disease)

How to submit?

Submissions of abstracts (400 words maximum) will be through Submission System (click here to submit). If you do not have already registered please sign up first here (for identification purposes, make sure to use the same email address as the one used for the conference registration).


To ensure that the abstract receives proper scientific consideration, please make sure that the abstract is submitted to the appropriate abstract category.


All abstracts must be submitted (and will be presented) in English with accurate grammar and spelling suitable for publication. Proofread abstracts carefully to avoid errors before submission. The abstract will be published exactly as it has been submitted.


Abstracts must contain original material neither published nor presented elsewhere prior to the Sessions of ICCS-2020.

An abstract must have a short, specific title (containing no abbreviations) that indicates the nature of the investigation.

Author Names, University Affiliations - No titles (Dr., Mr., Ms., etc.) should be used, nor should rank be indicated. 


Author Name(s): The submitting author is designated as the primary/presenting author. You may rearrange the order of the authors; however, always list the senior author last.

Additions or deletions of author names are not permitted after the submission deadline. NO EXCEPTIONS.


All authors’ names should be carefully reviewed for accuracy. If the abstract is accepted and eventually published, changes cannot be made after publication.


Abstracts may have the following identifiable sections: Introduction, Objectives, Methods, Results and Conclusions. These fields can be edited or deleted as appropriate for your abstract.


Describe briefly the objectives of the study unless they are contained in the title. Include a brief statement of methods if pertinent. State findings in detail sufficient to support conclusions.


Keywords: Please provide a list of 4-5 keys words.

Do not include references, credits, or grant support.

Abstracts are limited to 400 words.


Abstract Submission

The presenting author of an accepted abstract must register for the conference and pay the appropriate registration fees under each category.

After the submission deadline, abstracts may not be revised in any way or resubmitted.

Poster authors will be provided additional information on preparation of the poster for presentation.


Abstract assessment

Abstracts are reviewed based on the general guidelines of preparing abstracts, subject relevancy, and the criteria stated above. Each abstract is assigned to two anonymous reviewers. In case reviewers require further information about the submission, you will be asked for further information. Declining to submit the requested information within the specified deadline would result in the rejection of the submission.


Reviewers will take into account the following criteria: 

Is the question or issue clearly stated?

Is the significance of the work clearly mentioned? Is relevant previous work appropriately cited?

If relevant, are the method, data collection, and analysis procedures well-designed and appropriately applied?

Is the conceptual framework coherent? If relevant, is the theoretical analysis well-argued?

Is the work original? Does it present new data (if relevant)?

Is the work completed, or does it show very strong promise of being completed in time for the conference?

Are the conclusions justified in relation to the data and/or analyses?

Is the abstract written clearly and organized well?

Is the topic of scientific, methodological or theoretical importance?

 Is the abstract timely in terms of current issues of interest to the field of Cognitive Science?

About Iran
Neurocognitive symposium

Dear Researchers, Scientists & Ph.D. students

It is with my deepest pleasure to invite you, on the behalf of the Institute for Cognitive Science Studies (ICSS) and Shahid Beheshti University, to join and participate in the 8th International Conference of Cognitive Science (ICCS). The conference will be held during 15 -17 April 2020 at Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran.

Cognitive Scientists from all over the world are invited to join this event to share their findings and insights on all aspects of cognitive sciences such as cognitive neuroscience, cognitive modeling, cognitive linguistics, cognitive rehabilitation, philosophy of mind, cognitive education, cognitive assessment, cognitive neuroimaging, human-computer interaction and so on.   

As you are aware, cognitive science is an interdisciplinary field that has emerged and developed rapidly. Particularly during past five decades, cognitive sciences have made considerable improvements and impacts within our society. In this modern age of time, we are constantly facing complex phenomena. As cognitive science researchers, we are responsible to investigate new research questions and design novel studies in order to find answers.

This is a challenging path and the best way to overcome this challenge is to come together to share our experiences. In my view, the only way that we can face today's complexities is to develop collective thinking. Otherwise, how can we extend our research and disciplinary boundaries without sharing our thoughts?

The scientific committee of the conference will plan attractive panel sessions in different topics of cognitive science for all participants particularly for students, while special sessions are offered to focus on advances in neuroimaging, cognitive rehabilitation, cognitive modeling, cognitive psychology and so on. Keynote speakers by distinguished international experts will also highlight burning issues in cognitive science and beyond.

Finally, the conference envisages exciting oral free paper and best poster sessions where novel translational research will be presented. Attending the 8th International Conference of Cognitive Science will also give you the opportunity to learn more about the capital of Iran, Tehran.

Thank you

Ali Reza Moradi

President of the 8th International Conference of Cognitive Science

Dear Researchers,

This is my great honor to invite all scientists and researchers to participate in the 8th International Conference of Cognitive Science (ICCS). The conference will be held by the Institute for Cognitive Science Studies (ICSS) accompanying with Shahid Beheshti University during 15 - 17 April 2020. During this scientific event most aspects of cognitive sciences including, cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, cognitive modeling, cognitive linguistic, cognitive education and philosophy of mind will be discussed by scientists from all over the world.

 Moreover, there will be presented many new research reports during several symposiums and poster presentation sessions. Another interesting part of the conference will be panel discussions which will be held by scientists and researchers in different areas of cognitive science.

I hope this three-day event will be useful for all participants who are working in the field of cognitive science.
