Bridging Attention and Prediction Workshop – Extended deadline

Dear colleagues,

Here’s a reminder of the Bridging Attention and Prediction Workshop held next February in Barcelona. The workshop will gather leading researchers in the field of Prediction and Attention that study these topics from different perspectives (speech processing, visual perception, learning, development, etc). The mix of speakers intends to create a floor for discussion about different aspects that are nowadays a matter of debate in the different fields.

Presentations will be distributed in two-days and participants are free to choose which day they prefer. Alternatively, participants registered for one day can also attend the two days with no extra charge. In addition to the talks, each day will include a poster session and a Round Table where we will have discussions between the speakers participating each of the days.
