Neural Information Processing

Colloquium Winter Term 2021/22

Day, time & location:

Both “virtual” and “analogue” colloquia take place weekly during term time, typically Tuesdays from 13:00 till 14:30 hrs (Central European Time, CET) starting on October 26th, 2021. But some talks from international speakers may have to be held at a different time or day.

Virtual NIP colloquia are open to guests from anywhere in the world. If you are interested in attending one or several of the talks, please subscribe to our mailing list by sending an empty email to nip-colloquium-subscribespam  (Please send the empty email from an official university account, otherwise your registration is likely going to be delayed or even impossible.) You will receive the zoom link and password the day before the talk via an email to the mailing list.


Important note for students in the Bachelor Cognitive Science: If you want to have your participation in an online talk be counted in the module "Forschungskolloquium Kognitionswissenschaft” you have to write an email to Felix Wichmann (preferably while or immediately after the talk and from your official University account).

Detailed information on the single topics will be announced as soon as possible.
