Palazzo Piomarta (Istruzione), Corso Bettini, 84 – Rovereto, Italy

The goal of this Rovereto workshop is to provide a unique forum for researchers from a range of perspectives who are interested in Concepts, Actions, and Objects to come together to discuss their research and develop new directions and collaborations.
The workshop differs from larger conferences in so far as there are a small number of speakers (all invited) and there are no concurrent talks. In addition to the individual talks, there will be a poster session for students, post-docs and young researchers to present their work.
The workshop, organized by the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences ( will start on Thursday (May 3) with a welcome reception at 6 pm, and end on Saturday (May 5) at 6 pm.

Further information about workshop, registration and poster session participation will be available soon on the event website.

Submissions for poster presentations due: March 19, 2018
