It is our pleasure to invite you to the XIII. Dubrovnik Conference on Cognitive Science. The conference is going to take place on 19-22 May 2022, in the Center for Advanced Studies of Dubrovnik, Croatia, located by the Adriatic sea at the foot of the old city of Dubrovnik (Croatia), a UNESCO world heritage site.
Emotions are at the core of the human experience. After long having being marginalized in the study of cognition, affective phenomena are increasingly moving into the focus of researchers from across cognitive science. In spite of this renewed interest, however, there remains much disagreement about the evolutionary origins, functional profiles, and universality of human emotions. This conference aims to bring together researchers from a range of diverse fields to present and discuss state-of-the-art research about the mechanisms and functions of emotions in our species.
