Welcome to the CSAB conference!

We would like to invite you to the Cognitive Science Arena for Beginners (CSAB).

Our aim is to set a conference where talks are made in a friendly and cooperative environment with the audience challenging the speaker in a fruitful debate. The goal of CSAB is to provide a competent and useful “boot camp” for the speaker where anyone can practice the skill of giving a talk and develop his/her research based on suggestions from the audience. Along this line, highly innovative research ideas are encouraged as well as "in progress" research.

The key-ideas of the CSAB are the following:
  1. young speakers only (doctoral and post-doctoral students, researchers with a fixed-term contract);
  2. long time for talks and discussion (30 minutes for each presentation: half time for speech, the rest for discussion);
  3. only oral presentation, no parallel sessions and no poster session;
  4. in progress and high-risk research are welcome.

The conference will be held in Brixen-Bressanone (Italy) in February 28 - March 1st, 2014 at the Faculty of Education, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, viale Ratisbona 16, in Brixen-Bressanone (BZ, Italy). How to get there?
