RAW 2013 - Rovereto Attention Workshop

For more than a century, cognitive scientists and neuroscientists have been trying to understand the properties of selective attention and its underlying functional and neural mechanisms. But because attention is a complex and multi-faceted phenomenon it has resisted simple definitions or explanations. A key function of attention is to direct the limited computational resources of the cognitive system to stimuli that are central to the current behavioral goals. However, our behavior is also shaped by motivation and decision-making processes. Therefore, this year the workshop will focus on the interaction between Attention, Motivation and Decision Making in the control of human behavior.

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.

The workshop has a limited number of available places, so potential attendees are encouraged to register online as soon as possible.

The workshop will run from 8 am of Thursday, October 24th  to 1 pm of Saturday, October 26th 2013. The venue of the workshop is Palazzo Istruzione (also called Palazzo Piomarta), Corso Bettini 84, Rovereto (TN)-Italy.
