The 1st COGENT Workshop: Report
The 1st COGENT workshop was held in Room 514,
Department of Psychology, Birkbeck College, London WC1E 7HX on the afternoon
of December 10th, 1996. The purpose of the workshop was twofold:
We (the COGENT development group) were particularly interested in three issues:
- to bring together researchers who were using or intend to use COGENT,
thus establishing a COGENT community and enabling them to share their
experience of the system;
- to allow those researchers to play an active role in the development of
COGENT via a discussion of potential features.
Speakers were encouraged to use these issues to orient their talk. Ideally we
wanted to hear presentations that had something interesting to say about both
cognitive psychology and COGENT.
- COGENT and methodology:
To what extent does COGENT support experiments, the theory/implementation
distinction, and research projects? In what ways could better
methodological support be incorporated into COGENT?
- COGENT and the simulation of neuropsychological damage:
How might neuropsychological damage be simulated in your model?
Are modifications/extensions of COGENT required?
- Future directions:
What features have you found most useful?
What features have you wished for?
What aspects have been most annoying?
