Welcome message:

The cognitive science program at Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar (IITGN) is pleased to announce the second International Conference on Cognition, Emotion and Action during December 6-8, 2013. 
We invite papers that report empirical or theoretical research that contribute to the understanding of the interrelations among cognition, emotion and action. We also welcome research that falls into broader themes related to the main topics of the conference.
