Learning to Attend, Attending to Learn: Neurological, Behavioral, and Computational Perspectives
November 6-7, 2013 (prior to SfN)
San Diego, California, USA (in La Jolla next to UC-San Diego)

The Learning to Attend, Attending to Learn workshop brings together new research at the interface of attention and learning to provide critical insights and opportunities for interaction and collaboration. It will be held over two full days (November 6-7, 2013) in San Diego, CA (prior to the SfN annual meeting).

The main aim of this gathering is to encourage cross-talk among researchers from different fields asking the same questions. The workshop will include leaders of attention-learning research presenting studies of humans (infants, children, and adults) and animals, utilizing methods including eye-tracking, EEG, MEG, fNIRS, fMRI, and single-cell recording.

Confirmed speakers: Richard Aslin, Ethan Bromberg-Martin, Marisa Carrasco, Marvin Chun, Nathaniel Daw, Gedeon Deak, Robert Desimone, Jeff Elman, Lauren Emberson, Jackie Gottlieb, Thomas Hannagan, Celeste Kidd, Natasha Kirkham, Mike Le Pelley, Steve Luck, Jude Mitchell, Lisa Oakes, Bob Rehder, John Richards, Lisa Scott, Aaron Seitz, Terry Sejnowski, John Serences, Linda Smith, Chris Summerfield, Nick Turk-Browne, Rachel Wu

Poster submissions are now open. There will be one award for Best Student Poster ($250) and a number of student and postdoc travel awards. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

For those who wish to attend, space is limited to 100 attendees including the invited speakers, and registration is required.
