CogEvo 2019: Rovereto Workshop on Cognition and Evolution

Dal 10 al 12 luglio, a Trento si terrà un workshop interamente dedicato alle neuroscienze

The goal of CogEvo 2019 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.

Abstract submission: May 31st, 2019
Workshop registration: June 10th, 2019


The workshop, organized by the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences will start on Wednesday (July 10) with a welcome reception at 6 pm, and end on Friday (July 12) at 6 pm. There will be a Social Dinner (optional) on the evening of Friday 12th.
All sessions (including registration) will be held at Palazzo Piomarta, Corso Bettini, 84 – Rovereto, Italy.
Talks will be 45 minutes with 15 minutes for questions following each talk.
The detailed program will be available as soon as possible.
