THE CONTROL SYSTEMS GROUP
WEDNESDAY, JULY 15 to SUNDAY, JULY 19
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA
The Control Systems Group has met annually since 1985 to discuss theoretical
and practical applications of PERCEPTUAL CONTROL THEORY (PCT) in the
behavioral, social, and life sciences. This is a small and informal
meeting, open to anyone interested in PCT who wants to present work or
ideas, or who simply wants to listen and learn.
The 1998 CSG conference will begin Wednesday evening, July 15, and end
Sunday morning, July 19. It is being held at the University of British
Columbia (UBC). The first meeting will be Wednesday evening. At that time
we find out who wants to talk about what, and set up a schedule bunching
more or less connected topics together. There is usually time for a talk
that evening. The next meetings are mornings and evenings, with afternoons
free. The afternoons are used by some for recreation, while others get and
give tutorials, read, etc. We ask people who want to present material to
bring relevant papers that can be read in advance of their talks, so that
presentations are discussions rather than lectures.
On Saturday evening, we will have a dinner off campus in downtown Vancouver.
The conference closes Sunday morning with checkout and people meeting
