Call for Papers

Please save the date for the second edition of the 
Seeing and Acting Workshop (SAW) 
that will take place at the 
Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Coimbra, 
September 26-28, 2024 in 
Coimbra, Portugal.

For the second edition of SAW, we have, once again, an exciting and
stimulating group of Invited Speakers:

*  Chris Baker, National Institute of Mental Health, USA

*  Paolo Bartolomeo, Sorbonne University, France

*  Marlene Behrmann, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

*  Jody Culham, Western University, Canada

*  Roland Fleming, Giessen University, Germany

*  Sabine Kastner, Princeton University, USA

*  Hans Op de Beeck, KU Leuven, Belgium


The goal of SAW is to provide a forum for cognitive
science/neuroscience researchers from a range of perspectives who are
interested in Perception and Action, broadly construed, to come
together to discuss their research and develop new directions and
collaborations. The format of the workshop is intended to encourage
extensive discussion among participants. To this end, we have
scheduled only a small number of invited speakers, and there are no
concurrent talks. In addition to the individual seminars, there will
be a poster session for students, postdocs and other researchers to
present their work.

Abstract submission for posters closes on July 31, 2024. The five best
abstracts whose first author is a student or postdoc will receive a
200 euro award sponsored by ANT Neuro.

Registration for the workshop will be open in a couple of weeks. To
register, submit a poster abstract, or for more information, please

Please note that there are a limited number of places (~120), which
will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. To secure your
place, please register as soon as possible. Note that you can register
now and submit an abstract later (but before the July 31, 2024
