The Cognitive Science Colloquium Series is a weekly event that brings the Cognitive Science students and faculty together to hear cutting-edge research. Approximately half the talks are given by both speakers from other universities and half are given by UArizona faculty.

The Fall 2024/Spring 2025 Cognitive Science Colloquium Series schedule is shown below.  Details will be posted as soon as they are available.  As usual, the colloquium will be held on Fridays (unless otherwise noted), from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m., in the Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences Building, Room 205, 1131 E Second Street.

Some speakers will present their colloquia remotely. The format for a given week will be clearly stated as “in person” or “virtual.” All colloquia will be broadcast simultaneously via Zoom to make them accessible to colleagues who cannot attend the in-person events.

Three to five days after a talk, recordings will be available on Panopto, which can be accessed with a UA NetID. Please email Kirsten Cloutier Grabo for permissions.
