Acceptance Policy

Papers will be accepted on the basis of their quality and suitability for the conference. We hope to accommodate all participants who wish to present. Please note that because we have only a limited number of slots for spoken presentations, authors who request a spoken presentation preference may be changed to a poster format (you will be notified). The "prestige" of posters and spoken presentations is equal in MW CogSci; spoken sessions are based on the clusters of related topics in the submissions.
