  • the preparation and publication of assessments of the prospects for professional practice, education, and research in cognitive science, where necessary with the help of dedicated committees
  • the preparation of position papers and expert evaluations concerning issues of cognitive science research and education
  • the compilation of overviews of current information on cognitive science events, which are distributed via email and the world-wide web to the members of GK
  • cooperation with related scientific organizations (for example, the German Informatics Society (GI) and the German Psychological Society (DGPs) ), for instance with respect to the joint organization of sessions at their respective conferences
