Register now!! 4th Groningen Spring School on Cognitive Modeling

15 January 2019

We are happy to announce the fourth Groningen Spring School on Cognitive Modeling (April 8-12, 2019). This year, the Spring School will cover three different modeling paradigms: ACT-R, Nengo, and PRIMs. It thereby offers a unique opportunity to learn the relative strengths and weaknesses of these approaches. Moreover, we are finalizing a fourth tutorial on error-driven learning, more details on that will follow soon.

Each day will consist of theory lectures, one on each paradigm. Each modeling paradigm also includes hands-on assignments. Although students are free to choose the number of lectures they attend, we recommend students to sign up for lectures on two of the modeling paradigms, and complete the tutorial units for one of the paradigms. At the end of most days there will be a plenary research talk, to show how these different approaches to modeling are applied.

On the first day, spring school students are asked to present their own research in a poster session.

Like last year, we again offer the opportunity for project students to attend. The idea is that you have attended the spring school in an earlier year and now come back in the week of the spring school to work on your own modeling project under our supervision.

Registration is now open.
