Who are we?
The Cognitive Systems Society is a student-run organization at the University of British Columbia supporting students in the COGS program, and those with an interest in COGS-related fields such as neuroscience, artificial intelligence, human-computer interfaces, and robotics.
We hold a wide range of fun events, from Movie and Board Game Nights in the lab to our popular licensed gatherings: Meet the Profs, Welcome Back/Year End BBQs, and our annual Robot Party.
Additionally, we hold academic-based events such as VR Lab Nights, Alumni Night, and COGS 402 Info Sessions.
Our lab space is in the basement of the Friedman building if you ever want to use the space to study, or just relax.
Volunteering for the CSS is a great way to meet fellow COGS students, contribute to UBC's campus life, and learn valuable leadership skills. Our student executive, which organizes events and promotes everything COGS, is elected every spring. However, if you prefer a looser commitment, we’re always looking for fresh faces to help out at events.
Events held in previous years:
Weekly meetings are scheduled for 3PM on Friday in the COGS lab, and are open to all CSS members. Come say hi!
