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.
