TSPC2016 reptiles to whales, from frogs to kangaroos he showed that humans aren’t all that unique and claimed about Motherinfant lateral biases in humans and wild animals: conservatism of the phenomenon and its benefits for fitness. Christian Agrillo, after studying biological motion in the chicks, has specialized on numerical representation running experiments with different animal species and recently has started to investigate visual illusion in animals. Christian presented his latest studies in monkeys and fish. Daniel Osorio, studies colour vision and object recognition by observing different animal species from butterflies to primates. He has also investigated symmetry perception in the chick with two influential Mario’s students, Lucia Regolin and Giorgio Vallortigara. Daniel is involved in animal welfare and is part of a team writing the guidelines for the use of cephalopods. In his talk, he provides insights on How Cuttlefish see objects. Meta Virant-Doberlet studies vibrational communication in insects. She investigates this intriguing, and unsuspected, signalling trying to respond to all 4 Tinbergen’s questions and has presented "A day in a life of a bug linguist". The third part of the volume collects abstracts of talks and posters presented at regular oral and poster sessions of TSPC2016. Each abstract published in the proceedings has been evaluated by an anonymous expert reviewer and by the organizers. The list of anonymous reviewers who supported the editorial process is reported in the next section. About 54 active participants gathered at TSPC2016, coming from Italy and other European countries (Serbia 7, Germany 2, Greece 1, Slovenia 1, Hungary 1). It featured 9 talks and 45 posters. The book of proceedings includes written reports of all talks, and 40 out of 45 posters. Several areas of cognitive science were covered, including: perception (talks 4, 6, 8; posters 4, 5, 17, 24, 27, 29, 36); mindfullness (talk 1); action and perception (talk 6; posters 4, 19, 22, 30, 34); attention (posters 7, 29); memory (talk 3, 7; posters); learning (poster 17); development (posters 14, 23, 25, 31, 33); language (poster 13, 39); problem solving and reasoning (poster 20); personality (posters 11, 18, 25); decisionTSPC2016 making (poster 20); concepts and categorization (talks 2; poster 4, 16, 33, 38, 39); social cognition (talk 4, 5; posters 6, 9, 40); animal cognition (talk 9; posters 1, 3, 8, 15, 36, 37); neuropsychology (poster 2, 10, 12, 22, 26, 28, 35, 38); rehabilitation (posters 22); developmental disorders (posters 2, 5, 10, 12); applied psychology (poster 7, 21, 28, 30, 32, 34); executive processes: monitoring, inhibitory control (posters 7, 14, 18, 23, 35); In terms of disciplines, contributions included modelling, behavioral experiments with humans and animals, cognitive neuroscience, linguistics, philosophy, and vision. We thank all authors who submitted an abstract to be included in the proceedings, and the reviewers who supported the editorial process with their fast and constructive reactions. Finally, for their institutional and financial support to TSPC2016 we thank the Department of Life Sciences and the PhD program in Neural and Cognitive Sciences of the University of Trieste.
