@cogsci_soc @cassens @rebekahwegener @SangeetKhemlani The great @Molly_S_Quinn will be leading us off today, as convenor of this Symposium. Looking forward to some great papers from co-presenters from across the globe. @scienceirel @UCDCompSci @ucddublin @insight_centre @VistaMilk (n.b., 14.20h irish time).
I love this tribute. Losing Jim is losing so many people. There is the intellectual giant who loomed so large in mind years before I ever met him.
