INTERDISCIPLINARY COLLEGE 2009 (IK 09, www.ik2009.de)

An intense Spring School in Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience, 
Psychology, AI and Philosophy. Focus Theme 2009: Rhythm and Timing

Guenne, Lake Moehne, Germany - March 6-13, 2009

Chairs: Herbert Jaeger, Thomas Kammer, Gregor Schoener

*The Interdisciplinary College* is an annual one-week spring school, now 
in its 12th year, offering a dense state-of-the-art course program in 
neurobiology, neural computation, cognitive science/psychology, AI, 
robotics and philosophy. The course program includes up-to-date 
introductions to the main fields of the IK, as well as in-depth courses 
and discussions of a special focus theme. The IK is also a unique social 
event. In the after-hours, participants may absorb, and be absorbed in, 
the very special atmosphere: minds meet, music is played, and friends 
are made in long evening and night sessions in the welcoming conference 
site at Lake Moehne.

The *2009 Focus Theme: Rhythm and Timing* 2009 spins around the 
scientific riddles of time in social interaction, cognition, and neural 
processing. A wide selection of courses will be elucidating time's 
enigmas from manifold angles: biological clocks and rhythms; temporal 
processing in biological and artificial neural networks; timing in 
motion control, speech, social interactions; oscillation and 
synchronization in neurons, brains, bodies, and societies; perceiving 
and generating meter in music and dance; subjective and cognitive 
experience of time; reasoning about time, planning, acting and 
decision-making in AI systems; accounts of time in philosophy. Methods 
courses provide introductions to formal methods for modeling temporal 
phenomena. Mini-workshops from music and the fine arts will keep 
everyone bodily and sensorially grounded.

registration and everything else, including the IK's 30-year-long history.
