The aim of the symposium is to inform and encourage students and young researchers about the field and its various research domains . Cognitive science is an essentially interdisciplinary area of research and depends heavily on collaborative efforts among experts from various disciplines. Leading researchers from the field will deliver talks on some key areas of empirical research. We aim not only to spread knowledge about the field but also to start a fruitful dialogue among the relevant departments and interested parties in various institutes in India , especially NE for future research and help them contribute to the steady growth of Cognitive Science in India. India’s North East, with its rich and diverse cultural landscape, is a fertile ground for new and adventurous research ideas. Areas like language and cognition, cognitive disorders, bilingualism, artificial intelligence, emotion and cognition, child cognition, autism, can be explored.
