Workshop on Brain and Cognition & the 11th conference on Attentionand Perception

Dept. of Psychology of National Taiwan University is excited to announce that there was an ability to invite Anne Treisman, Shinsuke Shimojo, and Frank Tong, to be lead presenters during five-day workshop that is geared toward professors and post docs. Each of these speakers will give three separate presentations, to allow an in-depth insight into their research that is difficult to obtain during a regular conference. Apart from these presentations, local researchers will also present their recent advances in the field.

Registration deadline: December 15, 2005.

Organizers encourage everyone to sign up to take advantage of this workshop, and to take the opportunity to see a bit of scenic Taiwan. However, registration is limited and requests for funding cannot be honored either.
