Dear colleagues and students,
We would like to invite you to join our symposium on Multitasking here in Groningen, The Netherlands, on June 23, 2016.
Multitasking becomes ever more pervasive in everyday life. It is therefore important to have a better understanding of how the human brain processes multiple tasks. This can help us predict whether any given combination of tasks go well together. Furthermore it is important to know the nature of choice in multitasking: when do people choose to take on a secondary task, or decide to switch from one task to another. A better understanding can help to improve human-computer interaction, and to make people aware of how they can improve their own multitasking.
The symposium features a series of talks by international experts in the field and will be concluded with a panel-discussion around the question of what we have learned from research on multitasking and interruptions so far.
Registration is free and open until June 16.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the symposium!
Katja Mehlhorn & Niels Taatgen
