Hi all,

I am thrilled to share with you details about the upcoming 1st Timing
Research Forum (TRF) Summer School.

Event Details:

- Date: July 23-27, 2024

- Location: Chios, Greece

- Registration:

About the Summer School:

The 1st TRF Summer School The “Modeling Altered Time Experiences in Human
and Hybrid Collectives” summer school aims to both educate and promote
critical thinking on the topics below:

1. Model the dynamics of human subjective time in terms of psychological
key variables. Human time perception can be influenced by individual
motivations, cognitive states, and social factors. We will review all these
potential factors and dynamics that can modulate subjective time and
interaction in human-human and hybrid systems. We will also challenge
current thinking by transcending existing studies towards higher-level
variables that modulate subjective time (e.g., attention, valence, arousal,
bodily awareness).

2. Modulate time perception by auto-triggered sensory stimuli. Utilizing
technologies to stimulate our sensory channels of vision, audition, and
haptics, as well as their integration, and indicators of mental state and
task performance (e.g., physiological signals, attentional deployment,
agent reactions and interactions), we will challenge current thinking by
finding ways to model automatic decision making and generation of
stimulation for the subjective experience of time expanding or compressing.
For this to be possible, we will provide a thorough review of the current
state of the art on timing in combination with multisensory perception,
interoception, haptic vest technologies, and virtual and augmented reality

3. Coordinate time perception in human and hybrid collectives. Going beyond
individual human-machine/robot interactions, we will critically think about
the impact of time manipulation on group-level dynamics (purely human
groups as well as hybrid groups of people collaborating with artificial
systems; e.g., robots). For this to be possible, we will provide a thorough
review on human and hybrid collectives in terms of decision making,
coordination, and synchronizations of strategies, as well as modelling in
swarm and complex systems and collective robotics.

4. Utilise models to improve well-being and productivity in hybrid and
human collaboration. This will be done through engaging theoretical talks
from multidisciplinary teams, hands-on workshops, and collaborative projects.
Participants will thus gain comprehensive insights into cutting-edge
modeling techniques.

Registration Information:

Registration is closing on the 15th of March 2024. Limited spaces are
available, so early registration is encouraged.

Who Should Attend:

Multidisciplinary teams at master's, doctoral, and early career levels in
psychology, neuroscience, robotics, and computational sciences will team up
to meet these challenges and advance our knowledge on timing. The
participants selected will be a nice blend of people from different
disciplines with some or high knowledge in Python or Matlab.

Contact Information:

For inquiries or further information, feel free to contact us at

Don't miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in the exciting realm of
altered time experiences. We look forward to welcoming you to the 1st TRF
Summer School.

Best regards,

Argiro Vatakis
