The Midwest Undergraduate Cognitive Science Conference (MUCSC) is a one-day interdisciplinary conference for undergraduates in the cognitive sciences. MUCSC 2016 will take place on the Indiana University Bloomington campus on Saturday, April 9th, 2016.

The conference consists of 15-minute oral presentations, a poster session, and research lightning rounds where students can summarize their research in a 5-minute, 1-slide presentation. Students are encouraged to submit any applicable work, including research in cognitive science and psychology, neuroscience, philosophy of mind, linguistics, and computer science. Both ongoing and completed projects will be considered.


Submissions for the 2016 MUCSC have closed. To register for the conference as an attendee, please visit our Registration form.


Registration is free and required for all conference attendees - faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate observers are welcome and encouraged to attend. To register, please use the form below.


Though this is only a one-day conference, students travelling to IU may wish to stay in Bloomington on the night of the conference. We are partnering with Bloomington Co-operative Living to provide limited lodging on a first come, first serve basis. Additional arrangements may be made independently with the Biddle Hotel and Conference Center, located in the Indiana Memorial Union.
