Uruguayan Society of Cognitive and Behavioral Sciences

I Uruguayan Congress of Cognitive Sciences & II Symposium on Education, Cognition and Neuroscience

When and who?

From March 19 to 22, 2020, the I Uruguayan Congress of Cognitive Sciences and the II Symposium on Education, Cognition and Neuroscience will be held. This event will be co-organized by the Uruguayan Society of Cognitive and Behavioral Sciences (SUCCC) and the Interdisciplinary Center on Cognition for Teaching and Learning (CICEA).


This Congress seeks to bring together academics, professionals and the public interested in Cognitive Sciences, a scientific area of growing basic and applied interest in Uruguay and the region. The contributions of Cognitive Sciences to Education will be a topic of special emphasis at the II Symposium, underpinning the strong ties of common interest between the educational sector (Preschool, Primary and Secondary) and the university teams that work in this field.


The congress will offer a series of talks by world-class specialists on topics of cognition, neuroscience, learning and education (see speakers). In addition, there will be poster sessions in which original research works will be presented, which the scientific committee is already evaluating (see application dates). At the same time, short symposiums will operate on topics related to the event. Proposals for these seminars are received (see application form).
