Dear colleague,
(Sorry for the cross posting and mass email)

Please save the date for the second edition of the *Seeing and Acting
Workshop (SAW)* that will take place at the Faculty of Psychology and
Educational Sciences of the University of Coimbra, *September 26-28, 2024 *in
Coimbra, Portugal.

For the second edition of SAW, we have, once again, an exciting and
stimulating group of Invited Speakers:

·  *Chris Baker*, National Institute of Mental Health, USA

·  *Paolo Bartolomeo*, Sorbonne University, France

·  *Marlene Behrmann*, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

·  *Jody Culham*, Western University, Canada

·  *Roland Fleming*, Giessen University, Germany

·  *Sabine Kastner*, Princeton University, USA

·  *Hans Op de Beeck*, KU Leuven, Belgium

The goal of SAW is to provide a forum for cognitive science/neuroscience
researchers from a range of perspectives who are interested in Perception
and Action, broadly construed, to come together to discuss their research
and develop new directions and collaborations. The format of
the workshop is intended to encourage extensive discussion among
participants. To this end, we have scheduled only a small number of invited
speakers, and there are no concurrent talks. In addition to the individual
seminars, there will be a poster session for students, postdocs and other
researchers to present their work.

*Abstract submission for posters closes on July 31, 2024*. The five best
abstracts whose first author is a student or postdoc will receive a 200
euro award sponsored by ANT Neuro.

Registration for the workshop will be open in a couple of weeks. To
register, submit a poster abstract, or for more information, please visit:

Please note that there are a limited number of places (~120), which will be
assigned on a first come, first served basis. To secure your place, please
register as soon as possible. Note that you can register now and submit an
abstract later (but before the July 31, 2024 deadline).

SAW is powered by the ERA Chair CogBooster, and by the Faculty of
Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Coimbra, Portugal.

Workshop Organizers:
Jorge Almeida, Alfonso Caramazza, Paul Downing, Mel Goodale, Zoe Kourtzi,
Angelika Lingnau, and Isabel Pavão Martins
