We are pleased to invite you to the Eleventh International School on Mind, Brain and Education, to be held at the Ettore Majorana Centre for Scientific Culture, in Erice (Sicily) Italy, September 7–13, 2016.
We expect to have some twenty five participants in our course this year on Dynamical Coupling: From Brain-to-Brain to Social Interaction.
Both senior and junior researchers from several countries of America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. In addition, we plan to submit some relevant presentations to the Mind, Brain and Education Journal (Wiley/Blackwell).
We hope to enjoy a generous time for debates and friendly exchanges in the beautiful environment of old Erice, and during the visits planned to the ancient Greek ruins of Selinunte and Segesta.
To stimulate discussion and allow for deeper examination of the issues, we kindly ask each speaker to provide one relevant published or unpublished text by him or herself, related to the theme of this course and of the presentation to be given. These documents will be published on line at our site: www.mbe-erice.org
The Erice Center will cover the costs of your stay during the Course and the transportation from and to Palermo Airport. Participants are asked to pay their own air tickets. The suggested date of arrival is September 7, for our reception dinner. The departure will be September 13. The cost for room and board for accompanying partners is 100 Euros per day.
This is also the occasion to introduce the School’s Program Officer, Lula Majdalani. Please inform her of your date of arrival to and departure from Palermo airport, as well as carrier and flight number, so that the necessary individual transportation and accommodation arrangements can be made. Her email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, once you have chosen your topic, please send to her the title of your presentation and a 200-word abstract, as well as a 150-word biography (including at the end your preferred homepage link and email address).
For more information please visit our web site at: www.mbe-erice.org.
We hope that you can join us in ancient, beautiful Erice and look forward to hearing from you.
