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: Energy-autonomous and wireless monitoring protects marine gearboxes

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.

As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...

Im Focus: 3-D satellite, GPS earthquake maps isolate impacts in real time

Method produced by UI researcher could improve reaction time to deadly, expensive quakes

When an earthquake hits, the faster first responders can get to an impacted area, the more likely infrastructure--and lives--can be saved.

Im Focus: Atlantic Ocean overturning found to slow down already today

The Atlantic overturning is one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards. Also known as the Gulf Stream system, it is responsible for the mild climate in northwestern Europe. 

Scientists now found evidence for a slowdown of the overturning – multiple lines of observation suggest that in recent decades, the current system has been...

Im Focus: Robot inspects concrete garage floors and bridge roadways for damage

Because they are regularly subjected to heavy vehicle traffic, emissions, moisture and salt, above- and underground parking garages, as well as bridges, frequently experience large areas of corrosion. Most inspection systems to date have only been capable of inspecting smaller surface areas.

From April 13 to April 17 at the Hannover Messe (hall 2, exhibit booth C16), engineers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP will be...
