The Workshop on Predictive Processing (WoPP)


San Sebastian, Spain
20-22 June 2018

The goal of the workshop is to address the role of predictive processing in cognition. Some of the crucial issues in this timely research topic are the extent to which prediction is a fundamental mechanism of brain function, the role of prediction in learning, and, how predictive processing is expressed across distinct cognitive domains. This workshop will gather experts from different fields in cognitive neuroscience including sensory processing, attention and memory, to work alongside the community of language processing, with the aim of furthering our understanding of the role of predictive processing in cognition.

The conference will include keynote speakers, regular talks, symposiums and poster sessions.

 Keynote speakers will be the main sources of discussion:

  •  Sophie Scott, University College London
  • Moshe Bar, Bar-Ilan University
  • Pascal Fries, Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI)

Each keynote will be followed by a symposium on a related topic. Each symposium will be co-organized by two experts in the field, and will last 2 hours.

Symposium organizers are Gina Kuperberg, Matt Davis, Craig Richter, Julien Vezoli, Lucia Amoruso and Ruth De Diego Balaguer.
