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 Please do not cite references in the abstracts.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.
