The University of Salamanca (USAL) and the Institute for Science and Technology Studies (ECyT) are honored to introduce the Eleventh Edition of the Research Workshop on Philosophy of Biology and Cognitive Sciences (PBCS XI). Since its origins in 2011, the PBCS is an annual encounter of young scholars that aims at bringing together researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds: philosophers, cognitive scientists, and biologists working on issues of common interest. In this workshop, young researchers can present their ideas and participate in the discussions, as well as attend the conferences of keynote speakers. Its main purposes are to serve as a tool for enhancing research through discussion and to promote the interdisciplinary of the ideas presented. In its eleventh edition, the organizers would like to keep encouraging young researchers to participate in this fresh and distinctive forum.

This call is addressed to graduate Master, Ph.D. students, as well as Doctors who finished their dissertations during the last three years, working on the areas of Philosophy of Biology and Cognitive Science. Women and other underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

*       Consciousness and Cognitive Phenomenology
*       Animal and non-animal Cognition
*       Enactive Approaches to Biology and Cognition
*       Biological and Cognitive implications of Transhumanism
*       Cognition, Adaptation and Evolutionary Theory
*       Philosophical Issues Concerning Extended Evolutionary Synthesis (EES)
*       The Ideas of Explanation and Causation in Biology and Cognitive Sciences
*       Models in Biology and Cognitive Sciences
*       The Concept of Environment and The Organism-Environment Relationship in Biology and Cognitive Sciences

The format of the workshop will be in person, as long as the pandemic situation does not get worse.
