Each year since 1988 COGS graduate students have been meeting at Sussex University's conference centre, the White House. Over several days students are given the opportunity to give presentations on their work, exchange ideas and, most importantly, socialise. Out of this annual event arises a collection of short papers that have come to be known as the White House Papers. This summer all postgraduate students at COGS were invited to submit papers of around 2000 words for inclusion in the Seventh White House Papers. The resulting collection reflects work in many diverse areas of research, such as philosophy, behavioural ecology, computer vision, linguistics, medical informatics, HCI, software design and artificial life.
