    Call for Papers for Spatial Cognition 2012
       Kloster Seeon in Bavaria, Germany
         August 31 - September 3, 2012

Spatial Cognition 2012 (SC 2012) will bring together researchers
working on spatial cognition, biological inspired systems, spatial
learning, communication, robotics, and perception.  The conference is
single-track and the final program will be the result of a selective
review process. The program will include invited talks as well as oral
and poster presentations of refereed papers. The main conference will
be preceded by one day of workshops and tutorials. Every effort is
being made to keep conference expenses affordable, particularly for
student attendees. All papers presented at the conference will be
published by Springer.
