        Subject: Submission deadline for CATaC'12 extended + URGENT housing information

Dear Colleagues,
In response to continuing requests, we are extending the submission deadline
for CATaC'12 to March 31, 2012, with final notification of acceptance by
April 5, 2012.  Deadline for earlybird registration, as noted below, is
April 20, 2012.

We continue to solicit either full papers (10-15 formatted pages), short
papers (3-5 formatted pages), and/or panel proposals.
To submit a paper and/or panel proposal, please find your way to
<www.catacconference.org>, click on the Submissions tab, and then find the
red-lettered "Click here to submit your papers and panel proposals" which
will take you to the submission site.

The conference website has also been updated with new information regarding
travel, accommodations, and conference venue.  (These are accessed via links
on the right side of the page.)
Please see the fee schedule and earlybird deadline information below. The
conference registration page on the website will open before the week is

encourage you to go ahead and book your preferred accommodations *NOW*.
CATaC'12 will be simply one among many (and in some cases, much larger)
conferences taking place in Aarhus in June and accommodation possibilities
are already becoming quite tight.  We are fortunate to have a block of rooms
for CATaC participants reserved in the Hotel Mercur at Viby Torv
( http://www.hotel-mercur.dk/uk/ ). The hotel, however, is a convenient but
25-minute bus ride from the conference venue.
* Several other possibilities, closer in town, are listed and linked to from
the accommodation page.*
Bookings made now, of course, can be cancelled later - usually up until a
day or two before arrival - without penalty.  Even if you are not certain of
attending - e.g., you need to await final decision on a proposal, etc. - it
would be better to book now and decide to cancel later (should it come to
that) than encounter every-growing difficulty in acquiring a room

    Discounted Conference Fee - $515
    Regular Conference Fee - $565 (after 20 April 2012)
  Presenting author - deduct $20

                             FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
                  17th EURAS Annual Standardisation Conference
                          - Standards and Innovation -

                               18 - 20 June 2012
                                Kosice, Slovakia

                   *****EXTENDED DEADLINE: 18 March 2012*****

Organised by the
Faculty of Economics at Matej Bel University in Banska Bystrica (UMB)
Faculty of Economics at the Technical University of Kosice (TUKE).

We welcome original and innovative submissions papers from all areas of
standardisation. But the theme of the 17th EURAS conference is the
significance of standards and standardisation for innovation. At this
point in our history, innovation is critical for helping to move forward
from the global economic crisis, mitigate the impact of climate change,
reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help resolve the food crisis. The
critical role of standards and standardisation for innovation has long
been recognised. As codified knowledge, standards acquire an even
greater role in the development of the global knowledge economy. We
particularly welcome theoretical and empirical papers that will
contribute to greater awareness of how and where standards can
facilitate, hamper, or otherwise impact on innovation in all its many
dimensions. Examples include, but are not limited to:

* Standardisation & infrastructure development
* Standards, globalisation and national authenticity
* Conformity assessment for innovation
* The relation between standards and the development
  of science/technology/society/economy
* Standardisation, globalisation and innovation
* Education on standardisation and innovation
* Legal and regulatory issues in standardisation
* Standards setting and implementation processes
* History and future of standards
* Standardisation policies
* Economics of standardisation
* Management of standards
* Research and standardisation
* Standards and technology transfer
* Quality standards and management strategies
* Markets and dominant technologies
* International accounting standards

Full papers (up to 40 double-spaced pages; pdf, rtf, or .doc format)
should be submitted to Kai Jakobs at Kai.Jakobs at cs.rwth-aachen.de.
Authors of accepted papers are expected to serve as discussants upon
request. All papers will be reviewed (double blind) by members of the
Programme Committee. All accepted papers will be published in the
conference proceedings, as part of the 'EURAS Contributions to
Standardisation Research' book series. Particularly good and relevant
papers will be fast-tracked to the review process of either the EURAS-
Yearbook or the Int. Journal of IT Standards and Standardization
Research (JITSR). The conference provides the opportunity to get
feedback on standardisation education papers intended for the special
issue of the International Journal of Technology and Design Education.

ABSTRACT: In this presentation i will illustrate how the hegemony of
the computational metaphor enabled the paths of Artificial
Intelligence (AI) and Cognitive Science to run hand in hand for much
of the last 60 years. Subsequently, with reference to specific
elements of my own research, I will review arguments that suggest
computational explanations of mind will ultimately fail and conversely
argue that cognitivist approaches to the most complex, real-world,
engineering problems have long been overtaken by newer, more powerful
AI methods grounded in the world of large data sets and
statistics. Stressing the importance of the body, I will conclude my
talk by sketching a new, radical, post-cognitivist metaphor for
cognitive processes that shifts emphasis from "abstract computations"
to "embodied interactions".
