We are happy to announce the seventh Groningen Spring School on Cognitive Modeling (8 to 12 of April 2024)!

This year, the Spring School will cover three different modeling paradigms: ACT-R, Nengo, and PRIMs. Each of these topics consists of a series of lectures, as well as a number of hands-on exercises (tutorials).

Past years have shown that students get most out of the spring school if they really emerge themselves into one modeling paradigm. We therefore recommend you choose one paradigm for which you will attend both the lectures as well as the tutorials. In addition, you can select a second paradigm, for which you attend the lectures only.

To give students a broader picture, there will be multiple guest lectures throughout the week. These lectures will give an introduction to other modeling paradigms, as well as practical research examples to show you what can be done with the modeling paradigms presented! Everyone is encouraged to attend those lectures.

To round of the program, there will be a poster session, where students present themselves and their research, as well as our (in)famous spring school dinner. The goal of the poster session is to get to know each other, and for the teachers to get to know you, the students, in order to be able to discuss your work and how modeling can be useful.

**Registration is now open.**

Please note that, due to its interactive character, the spring school will be held as offline-only event. We will not offer the option for hybrid or online learning.
