Interdisciplinary Workshop on Cognitive Neuroscience, Educational Research and Cognitive Modelling

06.12.2010
The International Workshop on Cognitive Neuroscience, Educational Research, and Cognitive Modelling at the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK) Delmenhorst from March 9 through 12, 2011 addresses young researchers who try to integrate neuroscience results into educational science.

The cognitive neurosciences and in particular the recent advances in brain imaging have created a pronounced interest in the general public but also in adjacent scientific disciplines. It is obvious that Educational Sciences would be able to profit from findings in the neuroscience sector.

However, progress in integrating neuroscience results into educational science is made difficult or impossible by differences in methods, levels of analysis, research goals, and philosophy. The workshop at the HWK tries to bridge that gap and aims to foster the research interests of young scientists.

Keynote lectures by internationally acknowledged speakers as well as specialized talks and discussions will allow for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary scientific exchange. Prof. Elsbeth Stern (ETH Zurich), Prof. Eveline Crone (University of Leiden), Prof. Niels Taatgen (University of Groningen), and Prof. Claudia von Aufschnaiter (Justus-Liebig-University Gießen) will be amongst the invited speakers of the workshop.

The meeting is organized by experts from different disciplines at the universities of Oldenburg and Kiel: Prof. Christiane Thiel and Jale Özyurt (Psychology, Oldenburg), Prof. Barbara Moschner (Educational Sciences, Oldenburg), Prof. Ilka Parchmann (Science Education, Kiel), and Prof. Claus Möbus (Computational Modeling, Oldenburg). The workshop is supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

Doctoral students and postdocs from the fields of neuroscience, education, science education and cognitive modelling are encouraged to apply and discuss their research in depth and in small groups with international experts from each of these fields. This could offer a unique opportunity for young scientists to find connections between their own research projects and those in related fields. The conference language will be English.

The workshop fee for participants amounts to 100,- €, which covers three nights in a hotel, daily shuttle service from the hotel to the conference site, daily lunch and dinner, snacks and drinks during the conference breaks, and workshop material. Note, that travel costs are not included in the workshop fee. PhD students who rely on financial support may apply for a grant by additionally sending a letter of motivation and details on current funding.

Further information about the workshop and application procedure can be found on the HWK website: http://www.hwk.de/1702.html oder Dr. Dorothe Poggel, Tel.: 04221 9160-109, dpoggel@h-w-k.de

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
