[Comp-neuro] Invitation to Irvine workshop on modeling and neuroscience

Workshop on Interfacing Models with Brain Signals to Investigate Cognition

The Department of Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, Irvine is pleased to announce the first workshop on Interfacing Models with Brain Signals to Investigate Cognition, to be held in Irvine, CA, on November 7, 2013. The workshop is scheduled close in time and place to the 43rd annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, which will take place in nearby San Diego from 9-13 November.

The topic of the workshop is the intersection of neuroscience and cognitive modeling. Its goal is to explore and exploit the mutual contributions the two fields can make to one another, and how we can fruitfully integrate both.

The workshop will feature presentations by a number of experts in the fields of cognitive modeling and neuroscience. It is a full-day workshop, taking place on UC Irvine's beautiful campus, and it is open to all and free to attend, but registration is required. In addition to spoken presentations, the workshop will host a poster session to which all contributions relevant to the intersection between formal modeling and neuroscience are invited.

The experts who will present at the workshop are Will Alexander (University of Ghent), Nathaniel Daw (NYU), Birte Forstmann and Eric-Jan Wagenmakers (University of Amsterdam), Mimi Liljeholm (UC Irvine), David Noelle (UC Merced), Thomas Palmeri (Vanderbilt University), Roger Ratcliff (Ohio State University), John Serences (UC San Diego), and Brandon Turner (Stanford University).

You are cordially invited,
