Concepts, Actions, and Objects - Functional and neural Perspectives

The fifth annual workshop on Concepts, Actions, and Objects: Functional and Neural Perspectives will take place in Rovereto, Italy, May 19th – 22nd 2011.

The goal of this Rovereto workshop is to provide a unique forum for researchers from a range of perspectives who are interested in Concepts, Actions, and Objects to come together to discuss their research and develop new directions and collaborations. The workshop differs from larger conferences in so far as there are a small number of speakers (all invited) and there are no concurrent talks. In addition to the individual talks, there will be a poster session for students, post-docs and young researchers to present their work.

Please note that Marlene Behrmann's talk, scheduled for Friday morning (11.30 am), is cancelled.

Invited speakers

Salvatore M. Aglioti, “Sapienza” University of Rome, Italy
Marlene Behrmann, Carnegie Mellon University, USA
Jody Culham, University of Western Ontario, Canada
Paul Downing, Bangor University, UK
Michael Graziano, Princeton University, USA
Sabine Kastner, Princeton University, USA
Gabriel Kreiman, Harvard University, USA
Niko Kriegeskorte, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, UK
David Milner, Durham University, UK
