 Workshop on Cognitive Science Education
In conjunction with the 1994 Cognitive Science Conference, the Cognitive Science Group at Georgia Tech held a one-day workshop on Cognitive Science Education.
The workshop had two parts: a poster session in which the entire cognitive science community was invited to share information on their cognitive science programs and a set of four panels in which issues relevant to cognitive science education were discussed.
Cognitive science is after an understanding of human cognition that explains the processes and mechanisms by which the mind carries out cognitive tasks, the mental architectures on which these processes are executed, and the kinds of knowledge these processes rely on.

 AQ Fall 1994: Computer Science Study in the United States
Historically, computer science instruction evolved in mathematics and electrical engineering departments, and while many universities have since established separate computer science departments, it is not unusual for computer science programs to reside within departments of mathematics and statistics, electrical engineering, or business.
Knowledge engineering, cognitive science, and artificial intelligence, often considered separate areas of study, are all involved in the effort to understand and recreate human intelligence and reasoning.
Computer science majors are also required to take several courses in linear algebra, discrete mathematics, and probability and statistics as well as to fulfill various other university-wide requirements in the social sciences, humanities, and the arts.

 Giere, Ronald N. (1994) Cognitive Science and the Philosophy of Science: What's the Connection? , Psycoloquy: 5,#62 ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Some reviewers, for example, van Brakel (1994), seem to think that the proper relationship between philosophy of science and cognitive science would be for philosophers to be investigating the "philosophical foundations of cognitive science" in one of the modes just mentioned.
In the end, therefore, I agree with those reviewers, particularly Hardcastle (1994) and Slater (1994), who insist that unity in the cognitive study of science, and, by implication, in a naturalistic philosophy of science, is not to be had.
Contrary to the supposition of some reviewers, for example, Shafto (1994), it was not one of the goals of the project to convince other scientists that they had something to learn from new approaches in science studies.
