In cooperation with the Cognitive Science Society, we presented an award for the best student paper presented at the conference.  Papers whose first authors are current graduate or undergraduate students were automatically considered for this prize. The winner received a $250 stipend as well as a free, one-year membership in the Cognitive Science Society.  

This year’s winning author was Atilim Gunes Baydin, for the following paper:

Automated Generation of Cross-Domain Analogies via Evolutionary Computation
Atilim Gunes Baydin, Ramon Lopez De Mantaras and Santiago Ontanon [pdf].
