We have scheduled 20 minutes for the talks including 5 minutes for discussion.
In order to make sure that the oral sessions run on time, we would like to ask everyone to send their slides for the presentations in advance so that
we can set up shared laptops for this purpose.
The two laptops have the following configurations:
- LAPTOP_1: MS Windows10 Pro, MS Office Standard 2013, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2017.009.20044, VLC 2.2.4
- LAPTOP_2: Mac OSX 10.11.6 El Capitan, MS Office 2011 for Mac , KeyNote 6.5.3, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2017.009.20044, VLC 2.2.4, Quicktime 10.4.
Please upload your presentation using the following Link:
Please name the presentation according to the oral session the presentation is for (e.g.: OS-2.3 for Oral Session 2, third presentation). The
presentations will be loaded in both computers.
Also note that during the registration, coffee and lunch breaks, presenters will be able to test their presentations for the upcoming session.
Participants are requested to design posters (portrait) with the following dimensions:
- Maximum poster height: 120 cm
- Maximum poster width: 90 cm
Each poster will be given a unique number which correspond to the poster panel.
Due to the extended deadline for abstract submission, the notification of acceptance will be confirmed by April 4.
The abstract submission deadline has been extended again until 13rd of March 2017 ( UTC/GMT +1 h)
Special Issue Resulting from Previous SL conference (#StatLearnBCBL):
We are pleased to announce that early online access is now available for a special issue on New Frontiers for Statistical Learning in the Cognitive Sciences [B. C. Armstrong, R. Frost, & M. H. Christiansen, Eds.], which will appear in print in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London: Biological Sciences, in January.
Overview of the Issue:
Two decades ago, statistical learning (SL) was proposed as a powerful domain-general mechanism for processing a wide range of regularities. However, because of its rather narrow focus, SL research has largely failed to deliver on the wide-reaching promise of SL as a theoretical construct. This is mainly due to SL being investigated largely a separate ability, isolated from other aspects of cognition. This theme issue fosters a transition to studying statistical learning as an integral part of different cognitive systems, taking into consideration complementary perspectives from neurobiology, computation, development and evolutionary studies. This collection of work by international leaders from a range of disciplines shows that statistical learning is not simply learning to accurately represent the regularities of the environment. Rather it is a product of the complex interaction between environmental statistics, the neurocomputational principles of the cognitive systems in which learning takes place, and pre-existing biases due to previous experience and/or architectural constraints of the brain. This new perspective will enable statistical learning to impact a broad range of theories related to language, vision, audition, memory and social behaviour.
The full introduction to the special issue and a synopsis of the 13 articles in the theme issues is available at: http://rstb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/372/1711/20160047
