8 April 2009, Annual CSCA symposium 2009

Date: Wednesday 8 April 2009
Time: 15:00-17:00

This symposium also marks the start of a new initiative to boost Cognitive Science research at the University of Amsterdam. Following the designation of Cognition as a key research area of the UvA, a small committee of researchers from the CSCA was asked to draw up a proposal to promote collaborative research between groups of different institutes. One of the key elements of the proposal is the establishment of a new institute where researchers from different disciplines will work together on a programme to resolve questions regarding the mechanisms underlying human (and animal) cognition. The new institute will be located near the Spinoza Center for Neuroimaging.

The report describing the proposal will be officially presented at the end of the CSCA Symposium. The symposium will consist of three invited lectures by prominent researchers from the institutes that participate in the CSCA.
