Thinking in, with, and about space is a fundamental aspect of human cognition. Solving spatial challenges such as daily wayfinding, designing architectural spaces, or understanding visual representations, are cornerstones of success in life.
To fully understand human spatiality—from how the brain processes spatial information, to designing efficient spatial tools, to understanding spatial thinking across the curriculum—transdisciplinary research efforts are essential.
Pennsylvania is in a unique position to foster the cross-fertilization of research through a transdisciplinary discourse because it hosts several leading research institutions that focus on human spatiality with a highly stimulating mix of topics and disciplines.
Led by the Pennsylvania State University, the University of Pittsburgh, and Temple University, the 1st Pennsylvania Spatial Cognition Symposium is being organized. It will provide a platform for researchers to exchange ideas, present their results, and get inspired by a transdisciplinary discourse. The symposium is particularly focusing on students and discussions with additional contributions from leading researchers in the field in form of keynotes.
