BELO HORIZONTE, MG
In these lectures specific topics in the field of numerical cognition research will be introduced. These lectures will establish common ground amongst early and more advanced researchers for further discussions. Lectures will take 45 minutes with further 15 minutes for discussion.
In these lectures state of the art research methods, procedures and results will be presented in more detail. These lectures are intended to stimulate new research ideas by giving more in depth information on different topics and approaches in numerical cognition research. Lectures will take 30 minutes with further 15 minutes to address questions.
There will be three to four parallel working groups addressing different topics in numerical cognition research related to the expertise areas of the speakers. The goal of these working groups is work out first ideas for future collaborative research based on but also beyond topics and approaches presented in introductory and focused lectures. Results and topics discussed in the respective groups will be presented at the last day of the school to share experiences, questions and future steps with the plenum. Guidelines as to practices and aims within these working groups will be handed out to the group leaders by the organizing committee in advance. Working groups will, for instance, include the topics (1) transfer of results from basic research to education sciences, (2) a clinical perspective on numerical cognition research, (3) portable technologies.
Based on the quality of the poster abstracts submitted by participants, the organizing committee will select three participants per poster session to present their results in a talk rather than as poster. Presentations will take 10 minutes with further 5 minutes to address questions.
