Cognitive Science Seminar Series

The Cognitive Science Department hosts a seminar series in which Cognitive Science staff members, Cognitive Science students and visiting academics present research relevant to the research focus of the Centre. Seminars are usually held in the CCD Seminar Room (Australian Hearing Hub, Level 3 Room 610) and are open to interested researchers and professionals.

If you are interested in meeting with any of the seminar speakers, please contact the Seminar Series Coordinator, Cory Bill with your request and your availability, and we will attempt to arrange a meeting for you.
