photoThis year, UC Merced’s Cognitive Science group is bringing almost two dozen presentations to the Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society, in Quebec City, likely placing it among the best-represented universities at the conference. In 2013, we were also highly ranked, including ranking #1 among hundreds of institutions in overall presentations when including papers and posters.
