CogEvo 2016 - Rovereto Workshop on Cognition and Evolution

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.

Invited speakers

Stanislas Dehaene, College of France - French Institute of Health and Medical Research (FR)

Lisa Feigenson,  Johns Hopkins University (USA)

Tecumseh Fitch, University of Vienna (AT)

Martin Giurfa, Paul Sabatier University - Toulouse III (FR)

Daniel  Hanus, Max Planck Institute For Evolutionary Anthropology (DE)

Ghislaine Lambertz-Dehaene, French Institute of Health and Medical Research (FR)

Josh Tenenbaum, Massachussets Institute of Technology (USA)


The workshop will begin on the evening of the 6th  of July, at 6:30 PM with a welcome reception which is open to all attendees, and end on the 9th of July, at 13 PM. There will be a Social Dinner (optional) on the evening of the 8th.
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.
