The goal of Women in Cognitive Science (WICS) is to increase attention to the situation of women cognitive scientists, to better understand the reasons for existing problems of under representation in key positions, and to provide a forum for professional development that encourages both junior and senior male and female scientists to consider the ways in which they might work with their own home institutions to effect change. The CSS 2013 interactive panel discussion will bring together American and European researchers in Cognitive Science to discuss national and international collaborations as a tool toward professional advancement and visibility and why this is important to one's career development. Invited speakers include R. Harald Baayen (Eberhard Karls University, Tübingen), Melody Dye (Indiana University, Bloomington), Pernille Hemmer (Rutgers University), Lael Schooler (Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin), Anne Warlaumont, (University, of California, Merced). Speakers will describe and contrast varied ways to initiate and goals for international and virtual collaborations. *Laurie Feldman will serve as moderator.
