    Title: Judgements of Social Groups
    Location: Zoom (contact Katrin for the link)

    Abstract:
    A stereotype is a generalization about a class of people but does not necessarily represent every individual with the group (McCauley, Stitt, & Segal, 1980). Category information (i.e., stereotype information) is often used to make probabilistic predictions about people within a particular group. For instance, a probabilistic judgement about Germans would be that, “Germans are more likely than other people to be efficient.” Here we are making a prediction about an individual’s personality (i.e., efficiency) based on their group membership (i.e., German). McCauley and Stitt (1978) suggest that people are accurately Bayesian in their judgements and tend to make probabilistic judgements about people’s personality based on stereotype information. The current project aims to replicate the original McCauley and Stitt (1978) work to test whether stereotype prediction from category information to personality adheres to Bayes’ rule.

  • 14 - 24 June 2021, ABC Summer School: Musicality - Unraveling our capacity for music

    Date: 14 - 24 June 2021

    From 14-24 June 2021 an impressive cast of international lecturers, from a wide range of disciplines, will try to unravel our capacity for music. Students will, next to attending lectures, work groups and online social events, work in groups with a designated tutor on a research project, within the broad topic of musicality, which they will present towards the end of the Summer School. Organized by Prof. Henkjan Honing and the Music Cognition Group.

  • 2 - 13 August 2021, 32nd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2021), Utrecht, The Netherlands

    Date: 2 - 13 August 2021
    Location: Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Deadline: Saturday 1 June 2019

    Under the auspices of FoLLI the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) is organized every year in a different European country. It takes place over two weeks in the European Summer, hosts approximately 50 different courses at both the introductory and advanced levels, attracting around 400 participants each year from all the world.

    The main focus of the program of the summer schools is the interface between linguistics, logic and computation, with special emphasis in human linguistic and cognitive ability. Courses, both introductory and advanced, cover a wide variety of topics within the combined areas of interest: Logic and Computation, Computation and Language, and Language and Logic. Workshops are also organized, providing opportunities for in-depth discussion of issues at the forefront of research, as well as a series of invited lectures.

    The circumstances around the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic forced the organizers to postpone the 32nd edition of ESSLLI, planned for 2020 in Utrecht as ESSLLI-2020, to 2-13 august 2021.
