CfA: International Autumn School “Cognitive Interfaces” of the Leibniz-WissenschaftsCampus Tübingen

From October 8 - 11, 2019 the International Autumn School "Cognitive Interfaces" will be held in the Black Forest. The Autumn School focuses on the complex interplay of digital technologies and human interaction. Early career researchers are invited to engage in four days of intensive discussion and hands-on sessions on the challenges and potentials of digital technologies for the execution of knowledge-intensive activities such as complex decision making, or self-regulated learning.

“Cognitive Interfaces”
The development of information and communication technologies has made enormous progress in the 21st century. They have created an interface which makes access to an enormous variety of information possible in real time. They create an interface which supports how we think, what we know, how we make decisions and how we behave – in this sense it is a cognitive interface, in that it can collaboratively support people’s cognitive processes. Interfaces are also in a second sense cognitive interfaces, in that they themselves increasingly demonstrate characteristics of cognitive systems. They are increasingly adaptable, draw inferences and thus “participate” to some extent in social and cognitive processes. The potential of digital technologies is especially promising in knowledge-intensive activities – these can be in learning contexts or in professional use.

How do these interfaces need to be designed to encourage optimal knowledge acquisition, understanding and exchange, as well as optimal decision-making and problemsolving? And what challenges and potentials are associated with this? These are the leading questions addressed by the Autumn School “Cognitive Interfaces“.

The Autumn School is open to all Ph.D. students and post-doctoral researchers in the fields of psychology, computer science, social sciences (e. g., communication science, sociology, education science), or medicine, dealing with questions in the field of digital technologies. It presents a unique opportunity to meet fellow researchers and learn from outstanding scientific leaders, to develop new research ideas, discuss recent developments from a scientific point of view and to expand the interdisciplinary network.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
