Annual Lectures

Our Annual Lectures are public evening events with prominent international Cognitive Science researchers.

The lectures are named in commemoration of important historical figures of the Viennese Cognitive Science community.

These lectures stress the connection between the contemporary profile of cognitive sciences at the University of Vienna and its historical forerunners.
