Dear Researcher,

We are happy to announce the new discussion arena fully centred on
predictive processing. The Workshop on Predictive Processing (WoPP) will
take place in San Sebastian (Spain) on June 20-22, 2018.

The goal of the workshop is to address the role of predictive processing in
cognition. Some of the crucial issues in this timely research topic are the
extent to which prediction is a fundamental mechanism of brain function,
the role of prediction in learning, and, how predictive processing is
expressed across distinct cognitive domains. This workshop will gather
experts from different fields in cognitive neuroscience including sensory
processing, attention and memory, to work alongside the community of
language processing, with the aim of furthering our understanding of the
role of predictive processing in cognition.
The conference will include keynote speakers, regular talks, symposiums and
poster sessions.

Keynote speakers will be the main sources of discussion:

Sophie Scott, University College London
Moshe Bar, Bar-Ilan University
Pascal Fries, Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI)

Each keynote will be followed by a symposium on a related topic. Each
symposium will be co-organized by two experts in the field, and will last 2

Symposium organizers are Gina Kuperberg, Matt Davis, Craig Richter, Julien
Vezoli, Lucia Amoruso and Ruth De Diego Balaguer.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference.

Yours sincerely,

The Organizing Committee

Manuel Carreiras, Clara Martin, Nicola Molinaro & David Soto
