Graduate Symposium Learning & Memory in Cognitive Science

Frankenstein, Kaiserslautern 11.-13. March 2020

In March 2020, we proudly present the first Graduate Symposium for PhD candidates and young PostDocs on the subject of “Learning and Memory in Cognitive Science”. The Symposium will take place near Kaiserslautern in March 11-13, 2020.

This Symposium will open a platform for young scientists to present the current state of their PhD-projects providing the opportunity to receive real peer-feedback. New insights on the topics learning and memory will be provided by our keynote speakers Bertram Opitz (Martin Luther University, Halle, Germany) and Alexandra Hering (University of Geneva, Switzerland). Furthermore, this symposium is one of the very few so far that offer the possibility to discuss PhD-related issues with the professional PhD-trainer Marlies Klamt (Podcast: “Glücklich Promovieren”).
