What is Icot?

The International Conferences on Thinking (ICOT) are offered every two to three years in different parts of the world. The series was founded 34 years ago by the University of the South Pacific, Suva, Fiji.

ICOT fosters collegial exchange and educational development around the topic of thinking and its cultivation.Thinking is understood broadly to include any kind of thinking and learning and to acknowledge cultural, psychological, historical, and disciplinary diversity and richness.

The conference is transdisciplinary, drawing from diverse fields including education, neuroscience, health sciences, the arts, sports, government, business, anthropology, history, cross-cultural studies, architecture, engineering, economics, geography, technology and other areas.
