•    Reading groups that involve pairs of papers about the same topic from different disciplines;

•    Practice talks (especially talks that are interdisciplinary in nature or might be presented to an interdisciplinary audience);

•    Conference reports from cognitive science conferences;

•    Occasional invited speakers of interest to the group;
