Dear All, 

We invite you to the " 1st International Workshop on Predictive Processing (WoPP) " organized by Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (BCBL) that will be held in one of most beautiful cities in europe, San Sebastian, Spain from 20 - 22 June 2018 , at Palacio Miramar in Donostia - San Sebastián. 

The aim of the workshop is to discuss predictive coding and its underlying mechanisms from behaviour to neuroscience. We aim at calling together researchers and students from various domains such as vision, audition and language, to build bridges between various research fields and share this common and exciting interest on prediction. 
Please visit http://www.bcbl.eu/events/prediction-2018/en/ for details about abstract submission and registration. 

Dear Researcher, 

We are happy to announce the new discussion arena fully centred on predictive processing. The Workshop on Predictive Processing (WoPP) will take place in San Sebastian (Spain) on June 20-22, 2018. 

The goal of the workshop is to address the role of predictive processing in cognition. Some of the crucial issues in this timely research topic are the extent to which prediction is a fundamental mechanism of brain function, the role of prediction in learning, and, how predictive processing is expressed across distinct cognitive domains. This workshop will gather experts from different fields in cognitive neuroscience including sensory processing, attention and memory, to work alongside the community of language processing, with the aim of furthering our understanding of the role of predictive processing in cognition. 
The conference will include keynote speakers, regular talks, symposiums and poster sessions. 

Keynote speakers will be the main sources of discussion: 

Sophie Scott , University College London 
Moshe Bar , Bar-Ilan University 
Pascal Fries, Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI) 

Each keynote will be followed by a symposium on a related topic. Each symposium will be co-organized by two experts in the field, and will last 2 hours. 

Symposium organizers are Gina Kuperberg, Matt Davis, Craig Richter, Julien Vezoli, Lucia Amoruso and Ruth De Diego Balaguer.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference. 

Yours sincerely, 

The Organizing Committee 

Manuel Carreiras, Clara Martin, Nicola Molinaro & David Soto
