We are pleased to announce the EPOS Expert Workshop on Working Memory, held 11 & 12 December 2014 in Amsterdam.
The workshop broad range of experts from within the EPOS network and from abroad (in no particular order):
Prof. Dr. Andrew Conway (Princeton University) Individual differences in working memory
Prof. Dr. Torkel Klingberg (Karolinska Institute) Training and plasticity of working memory
Prof. Dr. Klaus Oberauer (University of Zurich) Cognitive models of working memory
Dr. Nancy Carlisle (University of Leicester) EEG markers of visual memory
Dr. Lorenza Colzato (Leiden University) Pharmacological underpinnings of working memory and cognitive control

Prof. Dr. Steve Majerus ( University of Liège) Working memory interactions with language and attention
Dr. Ilja Sligte (University of Birmingham) Different stages of visual working memory
The full line-up and programme can be found here.
The goal of EPOS expert workshops is to educate PhD students of the EPOS Research School on the latest developments in the field. The workshop features a wide range of conceptual topics, from visual memory to executive functioning, from individual differences to plasticity. But the meeting is no doubt also interesting to (and therefore open to) a wider audience, from students to seniors. Registration will be limited to about 75 people in total.
Registration is free for PhD students with an EPOS membership, and they will receive 1 ECTS.
Registration will be 250 euro for non-EPOS members. This will include the two-day programme, lunch and drinks (borrel).
