Cognitive Modeling

when 3 April 2017 - 7 April 2017
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 200

After the success of last year, we are happy to announce the second Groningen Spring School on Cognitive Modeling (April 3-7, 2017). Also this year it will cover four different modeling paradigms: ACT-R, Nengo, PRIMs, and Accumulator models. It thereby offers a unique opportunity to learn the relative strengths and weaknesses of these approaches. Each day will consist of four theory lectures, one on each paradigm. Each modeling paradigm also includes hands-on assignments. Although students are free to chose the number of lectures they attend, we recommend students to sign up for lectures on two of the modeling paradigms, and complete the tutorial units for one of the paradigms. At the end of each day there will be a plenary research talk, to show how these different approaches to modeling are applied.
