Special Events

In addition to talks and posters, CCN 2018 will involve three exciting special events:

Mind Matching

Meet the people most important to you! CCN 2018 will feature a computer-assisted networking event. Participants will meet and engage in conversation with a new scientist every 10 minutes. An algorithm will determine who meets whom and where. (90 min)

Challenges and Controversies

What it would mean to succeed at understanding how cognition is implemented in the brain? Three invited scientists with very different perspectives will challenge each other’s definitions of success. Speakers will present 15-min challenge talks and then engage each other and the audience in lively debate. (90 min)

Cross-collaboration Breakouts

Gather in small groups to discuss what you’ve learned. Invited discussion leaders will kick-start the conversation with short presentations. (90 min)
