KUCHING: A pre-conference workshop will be held prior to the ninth International Conference on Cognitive Science (ICCS 2013) here in August.

A total of six papers will be presented at the Aug 26 workshop on the eve of the Aug 27 conference. In addition, three workshops will be held in two sessions, morning and afternoon.

The workshops will be attended by undergraduates, graduate students, lecturers and researchers to expose participants to the theories and application of the topics presented at the conference proper. The workshops will be held at the central teaching facility, multimedia theatre and computer laboratory at the Faculty of Cognitive Sciences and Human Development at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas).

The speakers at the workshops are Professor Allan Hobson, Professor Rosalia Silvestri (both from USA), Professor William Hayward (Hong Kong), Professor Loo Chu Kiong (Malaysia), Professor Naomi Miyake (Japan), Professor Jack Copeland ((New Zealand) and Dr Heather Winskel (Australia).

Prof Hobson and Prof Silvestri will be presenting a paper on ‘Basic science and clinical aspects of sleep dependent changes in the motor system’ while Prof Hayward on ‘Techniques for studying human face perception’.
