Perfect social activity for the motivated researcher: conferences etc. ;-) Maybe you find something interesting...

Interacting Minds:
An Interdisciplinary Approach to Social Cognition

A One-Day Symposium at The Center for Integrative Life Sciences

Humboldt University Berlin

November 19, 2010

During the last two decades many researchers in the humanities and natural
sciences have begun to focus on understanding the cognitive processes
involved when multiple individuals coordinate and interact with each
other. This newfound focus is due to the acknowledgement that a central
driving force in the evolution of the human mind has been its embedding in
the social context. Many cognitive processes such as learning, attention,
communication, motor coordination, and decision-making can be considered
issues of the social domain because they often involve more than one
individual. With this in mind, The Center for Integrative Life Sciences
(CILS) brings together speakers from both the humanities and natural
sciences to address topics of social cognition at any level of complexity
- from the activity of single cells and neurons to the behavior of
individuals, groups and populations.

The Center for Integrative Life Sciences has recently been established at
Humboldt-University Berlin to bring together researchers from different
disciplines to collaborate on solving problems in social cognition,
decision-making, and human interaction.

IMPRS Interdisciplinary Symposium 2010 "New Frontiers in

Attention scientists and non-scientists,
Have you ever wondered what is happening in the scientific world inside
and outside of your expertise? Well, we are pleased to invite you to the
3rd annual IMPRS Interdisciplinary Symposium 2010 "New Frontiers in
Science", taking place in Munich on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th

This event aims to present the state-of-the-art research in physics,
chemistry, biotechnology, and medicine by leading scientists worldwide,
including the directors of several Max Planck Institutes, Leibniz and
Nobel laureates. This year's program focuses on sustainability of our
energy supply and biodiversity. Additionally, there will be a panel
discussion exploring the role of science in society with renowned experts.

This is a free event, so everyone is warmly invited to join us. For
further information and (free) registration, please go to our website
( Don't hesitate to contact
me for further information!

And for the ones of us who prefer conferences on which they can go skiing:
Dear colleagues,

We are glad to announce that the 6th edition of "*Alpine Brain Imaging
Meeting" *will take place next year again in Champéry (Switzerland),
from January 9 to 13, 2011.
The preliminary program and details can be found in the flier attached
here, or on the website: * *

The deadline for registration and abstract submission is _*DECEMBER 12.*_

Please forward this announcement to your colleagues who might be
interested. Given that that the number of rooms is limited, registration
will be on a first-come first-served basis, so participants are
encouraged to register early.

Then conference will feature 4 days of talks, with invited speakers who
are experts in different aspects of fMRI and EEG in cognitive
neuroscience, and there will be free talks and poster presentations by
other participants. Featured sessions include the following speakers:

*New approaches to mapping large-scale brain networks*
Arthur Toga (UCLA School of Medicine, USA)
Ed Bullmore (School of Clinical Medicine, University of Cambridge, UK)
Angie Laird (University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, USA)
Intracranial recordings of human brain activity*
Itzhak Fried (Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, USA)
Christoph Kayser (Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics,
Tübingen, Germany)
Nikolai Axmacher (Universität Bonn, Germany)

*Mirroring and understanding others*
Tania Singer (Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain
Sciences, Leipzig, Germany)
Christian Keysers (University Medical Center Groningen, Netherlands)
Marcel Brass (Universiteit Gent, Belgium)

*Odor perception and emotion*
Moustafa Bensafi (Lyon, France)
Thomas Hummel (University of Dresden Medical School, Germany)

The schedule of lectures will offer sufficient time for both ski
(morning) and science (afternoon), with optimal conditions for
interactive exchanges and discussions between all participants.

We have arranged with the Hotel Suisse and the Palladium Sport Center in
Champéry to have relatively cheap accommodations (in this region in this
season) and keep low registration fees, so we encourage participants to
book early in those two hotels. For the first time, child care will be
available for those coming with a young family. See website for details.

_To register and submit an abstract_, you will need to create a personal
account on , allowing you to
monitor your reservation status and modify your abstract until the final
submission deadline. If you want to receive information about the
conference in the future, you can also register to our _mailing list_ on .

Champéry is a small but excellent ski resort, with more than 100 ski
lifts and 500 km of runs, connected to the domain of the "Portes du
Soleil" that link 14 different resorts across the Swiss and French
border (see & It
can be reached easily and directly by train from Geneva Airport
(approximately 2 hours), or by car and buses. Geneva Airport has many
international connections (, but you will have to be
careful to book flights in advance because the winter season is very
busy! Another possible airport is Zurich.

If you have other questions, please contact

We are looking forward to seeing you in Champéry!
