Welcome Message In the Name of God the Most Merciful On behalf of the Institute of Cognitive Science Studies (ICSS) and Shahid Beheshti University (SBU), we welcome you to the 5th International Conference of Cognitive Science (ICCS). We hope you enjoy this scientific program, which is a magnificent collection of speeches, group discussions, poster presentations, workshops, and network meetings. We extend our very Persian welcome to our International contributors and participants, many of whom endured long journeys to I. R. Iran. The rapid growth in cognitive science and technology studies and research has allowed us to raise and formulate novel questions and provide solutions, which can be relied on in scientific endeavors of scholars from this field as well as other converging science and technology domains. Ultimately, our goal from inception at the ICCS has been to increase our focus on the numerous studies and research in cognitive science. This goal has allowed the ICCS to continue its efforts in making the biennial conference possible, and allow further scientific expansion and collaboration in theoretical, empirical, applied, and technological work in cognitive science fields. ICCS 2013 has been affluently enriched by 8 keynote speakers from all around the world. We had received more than 500 submissions; however, we were only able to accommodate 276 contributions to be delivered in the form of 55 oral and 221 poster presentations during this three-day event. There are a total of 13 countries represented at ICCS 2013, including: Austria, Canada, China, Denmark, India, Iraq, Jordan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. The conference owes its continued success to many individuals and organizations. We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to all of them, especially members of the Scientific and Organizing Committees and Mr. Nosrat, Executive Chairman of the Committee. We would like to thank the National Council for Cognitive Science and Technology (NCCT), Organization for the Islamic Conference (OIC), and Center for Innovation and Technology Corporation (CITC), for their invaluable loyalty and financial support. Finally, we would like to thank Dr. Kamal Kharrazi, the Architecture of Cognitive Science in Iran, whose constant pursuit in helping to expand and evolve cognitive science in Iran has been the driving force of the conference. We wish you a pleasant stay in Tehran and hope that the connections you make here will open new windows for future opportunities and collaborations.

The Engineering and Humanities University Students’ Critical Thinking Skills in Iranian EFL Context Minoo Alemi*, Roya Pashmforoosh

Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran


The ability to think critically and to arrive at a sound judgment is an integral part of any higher education program. As evidenced by studies (Kuhn, 2005; Williams, Oliver, Stockdale, 2004; Williams, Worth, 2001), without a commitment to critical thinking, there would be little progress or reform. Regarding a multidirectional view of education, the consistently valued learning outcome is the ability to possess higher-order intellectual skills to gain control over the environment. English education, like any other forms of education, requires critical thinking skills to equip students with the ability to analyze and evaluate the new English teaching materials. While other studies have predominantly focused on critical thinking ability in education, the ways in which academic disciplines shape university students’ critical thinking skills has gone unnoticed. This study is aimed to direct the trend of research toward investigating the effect of Iranian university students’ demographic profiles (i.e., major and gender) on their critical thinking skills, composed of inference, recognition, deduction, interpretation, and evaluation. It is significant to bridge the gap that so often deters curriculum designers and instructors from fostering rigorous thinking conventions within students’ academic disciplines at the university level.

in their daily life. In fact, they benefit from utilizing mathematics in simple daily tasks as well as complex ones. These analytical students possess flexible thinking abilities, a set of skills and perceptions to overcome encountered difficulties. They possess degree of mathematical thinking power, the knowhow, and the application of scientific methods emphasized in an engineering education. However, the reverse trend appears to be true for those majoring in humanities and social sciences since they are skeptical of causal explanations and mindful of faulty assumptions. Students in humanities are reluctant to use numbers and statistics and do not easily accept them as correct. They actively look for bias that motivates much reasoning and contaminate many arguments. More specifically, the performance of undergraduates in humanities on measures of critical thinking are attributed to their college experiences in looking beyond widely accepted truths and questioning statements. However, students build their knowledge quite similarly in terms of their interpretive and evaluative skills outside their area of expertise. These complex and widely variant issues across disciplines are important enough to merit general recognition, despite the fact that curriculum designers and instructors are often ignorant of them. With regard to students’ gender, males and females showed non-significant differences in the five aspects of critical thinking.


To this end, Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal (1980) was administered to 174 engineering and humanities undergraduates.


he composite score for the five subsections indicated is a great advantage for engineering students specifically for inference, recognition, and deduction. The results of this study suggest that the two groups differed in terms of their formulation of hypotheses and extension of arguments. Based on the findings, it appears that students who possess mathematical thinking skills have the ability to comprehend and interpret large quantities of data


In fact, there is a need to invite critical inquiry and interpretation among engineering professionals. However, those who argue in favor of humanities require more support in terms of the cognitive components and analogic reasoning to formulate hypothesis and build knowledge. The applications of critical thinking skills to the development of individualized decision-making abilities address concern about students’ variations across disciplines. Critical thinking skills need to be taught, however a precursor to fostering critical thinking is the incorporation of a domain-specific curriculum. Therefore, since there are differences among undergraduates in different majors of study, curriculum designers and instructors need to count for such differences when designing courses on critical thinking.

This paper investigates the interrelationships between working memory, Spiritual intelligence and academic achievement in monolingual (ml) and bilingual (bl) female students. Both working memory capacity and Spiritual intelligence have been found to independently affect the performance on school-type tasks, but their effects in interaction have not been considered.



BLs had a significantly better performance in all variables than ML peers. In this case, bilingualism does not appear to have negative consequences for the development of academic performance and Spiritual intelligence. Consequently BLs have more flexibility in language implementation. This study may contribute to a better understanding of the spiritual intelligence profile in bilingual and monolingual student. This study has the potential to be extended to some programs for improving student s’ spiritual development and working memory as well as improving the quality of their academic achievement.


Monolingual (ML) and Bilingual (BL) groups were selected from the whole population by using multistage sampling. The students were assessed on working memory and spiritual intelligence using the Psycho-matrix Spirituality Inventory, a 4-point scaled, self-reported, 49-item questionnaire which covers seven spiritual factors (divinity, mindfulness, extrasensory perception, community, intellectuality, trauma, and childhood spirituality). Three high school courses (physic, English, and Mathematic) were also used to assess academic achievement. These tests were administered to 400 (200 ML and 200 BL) high school female native Persian students.

There was a significant relationship among WM, Spiritual intelligence and academic achievement in both groups. But WM was the best predictor for academic achievement. Moreover, the highest significant relationship did exist between WM and Spiritual intelligence in BL group. Indirect path coefficient between WM and academic achievement in MLs was also statistically significant. Furthermore, comparative analyses of models using invariant method demonstrated that BL yielded significantly higher scores than did ML group.

Results revealed that there was a significant main effect of cognitive failure, need for cognition and general self- efficacy. However, none of the interaction was significant except between cognitive failure and general self-efficacy on habitual prospective memory. There was also a significant and positive correlation between errors in episodic prospective memory and cognitive failure and significant negative correlation with general self efficacy. Apart from that, there was positive and significant relationship between cognitive failure and errors in habitual prospective memory, and significant negative correlation between errors in habitual prospective memory and need for cognition and general self-efficacy. Further, errors in internally cued prospective memory were significantly and positively correlated with cognitive failure and negatively related to need for cognition and general self-efficacy. Moreover, the frequency of using various prospective memory aiding strategies was significantly correlated with cognitive failure.


Memory is a very complex, dynamic and multidimensional construct. One of the characteristics of human beings is that most of the behaviors are future oriented. Many of our action are goal directed .The realization of future goals is as important as recalling past information. Prospective memory is memory for action to be performed in the future like remembering to return the library books on due date, taking medicine on time. Meacham and Leiman (1975) made a distinction between episodic and habitual intentions. Episodic intentions are performed irregularly and infrequently, for example, going to receive somebody at airport. On the other hand, habitual intentions are those that are performed on a regular basis, such as brushing one’s teeth every morning. Episodic intentions have been further categorized into single and repeated intentions (Kvavilashvili, 1992b). Despite the recent increasing interests on prospective memory, it is still not clear how cognitive failure, self-efficacy and need for cognition influence episodic prospective memory. The present study was an attempt to understand role of cognitive failure, need for cognition and general self-efficacy on episodic prospective memory.



Two hundred and fifty two subjects (152 Female and 100 Male) participated in this study. The mean age of the subjects was M=33.28±11.84 with age range of 18 to 75 years of age. Cognitive Failure Questionnaire, need for Cognition Scale and General Self-Efficacy Scale and Prospective Memory Questionnaire were administered to the participants. Multivariate Analysis and regression analysis were conducted.


As these findings indicate, there was a significant linear relationship between the criterion variable and the entire set of predictor variables. Thus, about 28% of the variance of the episodic prospective memory in the sample can be accounted for by cognitive failure, need for cognition and general self-efficacy.

There are many children with a severity of problems that require the need of treatment. Though 80% of these cases don’t receive suitable interferences, behavioral disorders lead to the deficiency at school, education, family, and may finally lead to educational fall down, firing from school, criminal behaviors, and it may be the cause of many unpleasant consequences. One of the most prevalent behavioral disorders of children at the primary school level is the Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). This disorder is one of the classified behavioral disorders for the treatment of which various methods are applied. The present research aims to study the efficacy of the meta-cognitive training and its application in mutual interactions to the parents of children afflicted with ODD and the reduction of the oppositional defiant symptoms in these children.


The results of the present study showed that the meta-cognitive educational interventions and its application in the mutual interaction with the parents of the kids afflicted with the ODD on the reductions of the Oppositional Defiant symptoms and distractions in children in the post testing stage p
