In order to promote the integration of cognitive science and neurodynamics as a whole, the 3rd International Conference on Cognitive Neurodynamics - 2011 (ICCN2011) is held at Hilton Niseko Village, Hokkaido, Japan on June 9-13, 2011. The conference will provide a forum for scientists and engineers working in this exciting area. An Editorial Board Meeting of "Cognitive Neurodynamics" will also be held during the period. The conference will consist of three-day oral and poster presentation, discussion and social events. Within the days, a young researchers session will be organized in which internationally organized groups of young researchers discuss and plan their possible collaboration, and the plan will be commented by the senior researchers. The first day June 9 and the last day June 13 are set for reception and departure, respectively.
