Interdisciplinary Workshop on Cognitive Neuroscience, Educational Research, and Cognitive Modelling
Konferenz: Interdisciplinary Workshop on Cognitive Neuroscience, Educational Research, and Cognitive Modelling . Delmenhorst, Deutschland.
Termin: 09. - 12. März 2011
The cognitive neurosciences with the rapidly growing field of brain imaging in particular, bear a strong fascination on educators. Though, fruitful connections between the field of neurosciences and educational research are impeded by considerable differences in methods, approaches, levels of analyses, research goals, data, and philosophy.
The international workshop aims to foster the interest of young researchers in interdisciplinary exchange and cooperation between neuroscience and education. In addition to keynote lectures by internationally acknowledged speakers, the four-day meeting will cover sessions with more specialized talks and discussions as well as those with a broader perspective to allow for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary scientific exchange. Doctoral students and postdocs from the fields of neuroscience, education, science education, and cognitive modeling are encouraged to apply and discuss their research in depth and in small groups with international experts from each of these fields. This could offer a unique opportunity for young scientists to find connections between their own research projects and those in related fields. To ensure a fruitful scientific exchange, all participants are expected to stay for the entire meeting. The conference language will be English.
