Venue: Palazzo Piomarta, Corso Bettini, 84 – Rovereto, Italy
Rovereto Workshop on
Concepts, Actions, and Objects: Functional and Neural Perspectives
Spotlight Topic for 2019: Event Cognition
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 (http://www.unitn.it/en/cimec) will start on Thursday (May 2) with a welcome reception at 6 pm, and end on Saturday (May 4) at 6 pm.
Social dinner of the event will be on Saturday (May 4) at 8 pm.
This year, the workshop includes a thematic symposium on “Event Cognition: Psychological, Neuroscientific, Computational, and Linguistic Perspectives”, organized by Sharon Thompson-Schill and Anna Papafragou. Theme speakers are Janice Chen, Gergely Csibra, Anna Papafragou, and Charan Ranganath.
Further information about workshop, registration, fees and poster session participation will be available in January on the event website (see homepage of CIMeC).
