The Trieste Encounters on Cognitive Science (TEX) are a yearly summer initiative by SISSA aiming at bringing together scientists from all over the world at all levels of their careers to enjoy science, but also sunshine, food & wine.
This year’s edition focuses on time in the brain. By looking at time as percept but also as mechanism for perception, TEX 2017 will offer a broad and multifaceted view on the neuroscience of time. To this purpose we gather scientists who are studying time in the brain from different perspectives (e.g. how time shapes our perception, how information is processed over time, how time is perceived or misperceived) and using distinct methodological approaches (from animal electrophysiology to human neuroimaging, from computational modelling to psychophysics).
TEX 2017 is a summer school for PhD students and Post-Docs. The idea is to have classes on fundamentals provided by eight invited speakers who will give talks on the established concepts and body of evidence in their own field but to also have room for students and post-docs talks.
You can apply by clicking on Registration on the left; and you can contribute an abstract by clicking on Call for Abstracts, again on the left.
TEX2017 will take place between Monday June 12 and Friday June 16, 2017. It will be held at SISSA main campus, via Bonomea 265, Trieste. Information on how to reach us can be found here. TEX2017 will feature Marco Cicchini (Pisa), Ayelet Landau (Jerusalem), Stefano Panzeri (Trento), Warrick Roseboom (Sussex), Marshall Shuler (Baltimore), Virginie van Wassenhove (Paris), Hedderik van Rijn (Groningen).
We look forward to meeting you in Trieste next summer!
