March 8 - 12, 2021

Strasbourg (France)

INTRODUCTION

The aim of the online school is to bring together 20 students from different disciplines : philosophy, psychiatry, experimental psychology, and those who started to develop an expertise in virtual reality.

Students will be selected on their CV and a motivation letter describing the kind of project they would like to build. The documents can be sent to cThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Submission Deadline: February 15th, 2021.

Talks will be given by the investigators of the european project VirtualTimes, to illustrate the building of a multidisciplinary project, and to provide knowledge on timing in experimental psychology, psychopathology, and virtual reality. Invited speakers will give keynote talks in the afternoon to provide complementary expertise.

The participating students will be able to:

  • virtually present their posters on Monday afternon
  • work in groups of 3 to 4 in order to build an interdisciplinary project (they will have access to individual virtual rooms and will be assisted by senior researchers of the Winter School, who will be available throughout the week)
  • each group will finally be able to present their interdisciplinary project (oral presentation)

 

This Winter School is supported by:

Project VirtualTimes (grant number 824128) funded by the EU under Future and Emerging Technologies.
