KNAW Master Class: Current Issues in (Visual) Working Memory Wednesday 26 June 2019

The KNAW hosts a master class on current issues in (visual) working memory, supported by the EPOS and Helmholtz graduate schools. Three world-renowned experts will treat conceptual, modeling, and methodological aspects of working memory research. The master class is targeted towards PhD students in the cognitive sciences and neighboring fields, and assumes background knowledge on cognitive processes. Provided there is availability, others will be welcome too. Attendance is free and includes lunch and coffee/tea. Priority will be given to members of the EPOS and Helmholtz graduate schools, but we expect there will sufficient capacity for non-members. Furthermore, PhD students are invited (and strongly encouraged) to present their work or idea to the group, in 5 minute pitches, allowing for a lively interaction. This may be on any topic, not necessarily working memory.
