Cognitive Science Workshop in November

Lisa Sanders and Joe Pater write:

Our Cognitive Science workshop will be held on Thursday, November 13th 2-5:30 in Integrative Learning Center (ILC) N400 and surrounds. Please join us for as much of this workshop as you can and feel free to invite others who are interested in Cognitive Science but are not already listed on our blog site. We're really excited to have a great group of speakers who generously agreed to present (without too much begging). We're also looking forward to many great poster presentations.

This is a great opportunity for you to share your research with the local CogSci community who may not know what you've been up to - present a poster! If you have a poster from a recent or upcoming conference, please give it a second venue by presenting at our workshop. If you have work that is ready to turn into a poster, but don't otherwise have plans to present, we can print a poster for you - contact Lisa Sanders for details.

So that we can know how many people and posters to expect, please take a few seconds to click this link and then make one choice to indicate that you are coming. It will take a couple more minutes if you want to present a poster. Please let us know if you plan on coming soon, so that if the number of participants exceeds the space available in ILC N400, we can find another venue.
