CogNetwork is an interdisciplinary weekly forum focused on discussing ongoing research in language and cognition; both theoretical and experimental approaches are welcomed.

It features presentations of works in progress by members of the UC Berkeley Linguistics Department and other campus departments as well as invited visitors.

A major goal of the forum is to foster cross-department and cross-disciplinary communication and contact.
