Satellite 1: CAPnet/CPS

Date: May 13 2018, 8 am to 4:30 pm

Venue: Sheraton Wall Centre Vancouver

Program details:

This one-day satellite symposium broadly focuses on perception and action and we invite abstract submissions from anyone working in this research area. The specific topic this year is on visual and motor perception and production in both the acting agent as well as the observation of movement in other agents, and how this dyadic interplay affects both actor and observer.

Organized by the Canadian Action and Perception Network (CAPnet), this is an annual gathering of some of the top Canadian scientists investigating sensation, perception, and movement control.

The satellite is open to everyone and will highlight presentations from neuroscientists across Canada in talk sessions, a poster session, and a keynote lecture given by Dr. Jim Enns from the University of British Columbia.
