CogEvo 2016

6-9 July 2016
Palazzo Piomarta (Istruzione)
Corso Bettini 84, Rovereto

The goal of CogEvo 2016 is to provide a unique forum for researchers interested in cognition, neuroscience and evolution, to come together to discuss their research and develop new directions and collaborations. The workshop distinguishes itself from larger conferences by hosting a small number of speakers (all invited) with no concurrent talks. In addition to the talks, there will be a poster session for young researchers to present their work.
