The Centre for Communication, Cognition and Computation

joint research centre of UvA and UoE

Scope and mission

This is the project site for the collaboration between the University of Edinburgh and the University of Amsterdam at the interface of Cognition, Logic, Language and Computational Models. Topics of focus will include but are not limited to

  • Interaction in communication, reasoning and learning
  • Human machine interaction
  • Integrating modelling and experimental methods

Our aim is to bring together researchers working on these areas using a variety of formal and experimental methods coming from psychology, logic, mathematics, computer science, linguistics and cognitive modelling. We are particularly interested in cognitive and logical processes that we observe in interactions in populations as well as interactions of individuals with their environment.

This collaboration has been initiated by the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation of the University of Amsterdam and School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences and the School of Informatics of the University of Edinburgh. We welcome other scholars affiliated to the UvA and UoE that are active in the above mentioned research areas to join.

This project is part of a larger collaboration between said universities in the areas of

  • Cognition, Logic, Language and Computational models
  • Artificial intelligence & Law
  • Brain Development & Cognition
