Organization of a symposium at the IMBES 2018 international conference« Back
The Institut of Information Systems HES-SO Valais-Wallis has the honor to organize and lead an international symposium during IMBES 2018, a conference dedicated to cognitive sciences. It will bring together specialists from around the world and will take place from 27 to 29 September 2018 in Los Angeles, California.
The symposium “The elephant in the (class)room: Learning occurs in multisensory environments” has been accepted and will be presented by Dr. Paul Matusz. Paul Matusz, cognitive scientist studying attention and learning in multisensory settings across lifespan, will provide a “roadmap” talk, summarising extant findings on how adults and children differ in the way they attend to and learning multisensory information. He will describe how these differences can be better understood by focusing on specific cognitive processes (and their neural correlates), isolated via rigorous tasks developed in research on adults, and adapting them to multisensory, developmental settings.
Additional speakers: Anna Fisher (Carnegie Melon University), Natasha Kirkham (Babylab, Birkbeck College London), Silvia Brem (Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, University of Zürich & ETH), and Dima Amso (Brown University).
