Today turns into yesterday in the blink of an eye, and we anxiously wait for our plans to become the present. The concept of time is embedded into our daily lives. Yet, the question of what it is and how it connects to our minds is poorly understood.
UofT’s Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence Students Association (CASA) invites you to a breathtaking adventure of Time and the Mind at our 10th iteration of the University of Toronto Interdisciplinary Symposium on the Mind (UTism). This year, UTism aims to address: how do our minds experience time and change through it? By bringing together a lineup of stellar scholars, the conference will present an interdisciplinary perspective based on contemporary research in philosophy, psychology, computer science, neuroscience, and linguistics.
Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary study of the mind, integrating knowledge in psychology, philosophy, computer science, neuroscience, and linguistics. UTism aims to explore contemporary issues in cognitive science via interdisciplinary dialogue from leading minds in cognitive science research. The goal is to converge different academic disciplines related to cognitive science to provide a holistic, multifaceted understanding of issues through an accessible platform.
The main learning outcome from this conference is the novel exposure to interdisciplinary research that will hopefully stimulate your intellectual and personal interests in the study of the mind.
