We would like to inform you that the abstract submission deadline to PREDICTIVE PROCESSING has been extended. The new deadline is April 16th.
The conference dates are June 20-22, 2018
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.
We invite submissions from researchers genuinely interested in discussing their data within the framework of the prediction view on neurocognition and brain functioning.
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 hours.
Symposium organizers are Gina Kuperberg, Matt Davis, Craig Richter, Julien Vezoli, Lucia Amoruso and Ruth De Diego Balaguer.
