Department of Experimental Psychology: Summer School on Connectionist ModellingApplications are invited for participation in a two-week residential Summer School on techniques in connectionist modelling, to be held between 23 July and 4 August.
The course is aimed primarily at researchers who wish to exploit neural network models in their teaching andor research and it will provide a general introduction to connectionist modelling, biologically plausible neural networks and brain function through lectures and exercises on PCs. The course is interdisciplinary in content though many of the illustrative examples are taken from cognitive and developmental psychology, and cognitive neuroscience. The instructors with primary responsibility for teaching the course are Kim Plunkett and Edmund Rolls. No prior knowledge of computational modelling will be required though simple word processing skills will be assumed.
The cost of participation in the Summer School is £1,050. This figure covers the cost of accommodation (bed-and- breakfast at St John's College), registration and all literature required for the Summer School. Participants will be expected to cover their own travel and meal costs. A number of partial bursaries (£200) will be available for graduate students. Applicants should indicate whether they wish to be considered for a graduate student scholarship but are advised to seek further funding as well, since in previous years the number of graduate student applications has far exceeded the number of scholarships available.
Those interested in participating in the Summer School should complete the application form at http://www.psy.ox.ac.uk, not later than 23 January.
