Organiser 12th Neural Computation and Psychology Workshop (NCPW12) 8-10 April 2010
- This international conference attracted 24 contributed talks and three keynote lectures by researchers from 10 different countries. The conference covered topics of cognitive development, language processing, high-level cognition, face processing, learning, and philosophy and methodology. The resulting book is published by WorldScientific .
Organiser Birkbeck Memory workshop: "Serial and free recall: new data and models" (21 October 2009)
- The main motivation for this workshop was the change in perspective among memory theorists that there is a need to fully integrate the two types of memory paradigms in current theorising.
- Six researchers (Dr Phil Beaman, University of Reading; Professor Gordon Brown, University of Warwick; Dr Davelaar; Dr Simon Farrell, University of Bristol; Professor Dr Jeroen Raaijmakers, University of Amsterdam; and Professor Geoff Ward, University of Essex) discussed new theoretical models and empirical data. The Workshop was attended by researchers from Birkbeck and University College London.
- One attendee had the following impression: 'The Memory Workshop was an informal gathering of many of the UK's foremost researchers in the field of working memory. Bringing together a broad range of theoretical standpoints, the meeting provided a forum for presenting and discussing cutting-edge research, drawing on experimental, modelling, and neuropsychological approaches. Setting aside the healthy debate about whether separable short-term memory buffers exist, the clear consensus was that these kind of meetings just don't happen often enough: informal workshops create fantastic opportunities for exchanging and synthesising new ideas by promoting spontaneous discussion, in a way that simply is not possible with the more rigid constraints of the conference format.'
