- CITEC Summer School 2013
*Continuous Learning in Living and Artificial Systems*

CITEC, Bielefeld University, Germany, September 9th-13th, 2013
Deadline for applications June 21st, 2013.

Dear young researchers,

The CITEC Summer School 2013 is dedicated to the topic of *Continuous 
learning in living and artificial systems* and taking place from 
September 9-13.

We invite you to Bielefeld to discover the complexity and structures of 
learning processes in the areas of cognitive neuroscience, HRI, 
linguistics, experimental psychology, computational modeling, and 
robotics. Each day of our summer school is dedicated to a focus issue, 
which will be treated from several perspectives. Theoretical input and 
latest research results will be presented in plenary lectures, which are 
held by renowned international and CITEC experts. Small-group workshops 
on practical, experimental and theoretical topics, as well as discussion 
groups, and an activity program round up the curriculum.

Besides attending the invited talks by experts and participating in the 
afternoon courses (we advance that there will be around 3 parallel 
courses every afternoon to select from), the students will have the 
opportunity to engage in discussions with the invited speakers and local 
tutors/speakers and discuss aspects related to their own research.
