Rovereto Workshop on Concepts, Actions and Objects (CIMEC-CAOs) 2017: Functional and Neural Perspectives

  • Conference Call
  • The work­shop, orga­nized by the Cen­ter for Mind/​Brain Sci­ences of the Uni­ver­sity of Trento, will start on Thurs­day (May 4) with a wel­come recep­tion at 6 pm, and end on Sun­day (May 7) at 12 noon and will be held in Rovereto, Italy.

    The goal of this Rovereto work­shop is to pro­vide a unique forum for researchers from a range of per­spec­tives who are inter­ested in Con­cepts, Actions, and Objects to come together to dis­cuss their research and develop new direc­tions and collaborations.

    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.

    Poster Size and Awards

    Abstracts (max­i­mum of 250 words) should briefly state the back­ground to the research, the meth­ods used, the prin­ci­pal find­ings (no sta­tis­tics), and the the­o­ret­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance of the work. Please do not cite ref­er­ences in the abstracts. Each author can appear as first author on one poster only.

    In order to present the poster at the work­shop, every poster ses­sion par­tic­i­pant will be pro­vided with a free­stand­ing bul­letin board, approx­i­mately 125 cm high and 95 cm wide, on which to dis­play the poster. Please make sure that your poster does not exceed these dimensions.

    Five 200 Euro awards will be granted on a com­pet­i­tive basis at the work­shop, on the basis of the sub­mit­ted abstracts. Only non-​faculty first authored posters are eli­gi­ble for the awards. The orga­niz­ing com­mit­tee will jointly decide the win­ning posters and will send emails with deci­sions to the winners.
