SNAP Workshop 2017 - Auditory Cognition

SNAP Work­shop 2017

After great suc­cess in the past, we are proud to announce a new SNAP Work­shop in Decem­ber 8|9 2017. This time it will take place at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Lübeck!

The work­shop will bring togeth­er, for two days of sci­ence, about 12 inter­na­tion­al speak­ers on neu­ro­science, psy­chophysics and engi­neer­ing per­spec­tives on pro­cess­ing degrad­ed sound and speech.

We hope­ful­ly will (re-)cre­ate an intense atmos­phere of ideas and dis­cus­sions, flanked by some posters from grad­u­ate stu­dents and post­docs who will be able to reg­is­ter for the work­shop as well.
We aim for not more than 40 par­tic­i­pants in total. These slots will be giv­en by a first come, first serve basis. Reg­is­tra­tion closed!

9 Speak­ers already con­firmed to give a talk dur­ing SNAP:
Sami­ra Ander­son, U Mary­land Col­lege Park, USA
Jen­nifer Biz­ley, UCL, UK
Maria Chait, UCL, UK
Tom Fran­cart, U Leu­ven, BE
Christoph Kayser, U Glas­gow, UK
Edmund Lalor, U Rochester, USA
Josh McDer­mott, MIT, USA
Nima Mes­garani, U Colum­bia, USA
Sarah Ver­hulst, U Ghent, BE
We will hold the work­shop in the heart of Lübeck’s medieval city cen­tre (an island, actu­al­ly), which is UNESCO world cul­tur­al her­itage.
In Decem­ber, when you will be here, Lübeck also holds a quite pit­toresque Ger­man christ­mas mar­ket.
