The goal of this Rovereto workshop is to provide a unique forum for researchers from a range of perspectives who are interested in Concepts, Actions, and Objects to come together to discuss their research and develop new directions and collaborations.

The workshop differs from larger conferences in so far as there are a small number of speakers (all invited) and there are no concurrent talks. In addition to the individual talks, there will be a poster session for students, post-docs and young researchers to present their work.

The workshop, organized by the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences will start on Thursday (May 7) with a welcome reception at 6 pm, and end on Saturday (May 9) at 6 pm.
Social dinner of the event will be on Saturday (May 9) at 8 pm.

Poster deadline: March 19, 2020

About Rovereto

Set amid hills and vineyards, Rovereto is in the center of Valle dell’Adige, along the main road linking Trento and Verona.

We advise you to explore the city on foot, the streets of the city center are like a journey through different time periods:

the Middle Ages in the walls of Castelbarco
the dominion of the Republic of Venice in the home of the Podestà
the Eighteenth Century in the palazzi of Corso Bettini
the First World War in the rooms of the castle
Along the city streets, you can see the most important and prestigious Eighteenth century palazzi, from Accademia degli Agiati, to Teatro Zandonai, to the city library in palazzo Annona.

Many illustrous guests have visited the city. Perhaps the most famous is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who held his first concert in Italy in the church of San Marco.

In Rovereto you can visit museums of art, history and science such as Mart, Depero’s House of Futurist Art, the Italian War Museum and the City Museum Foundation.

Rovereto is also a City of Peace, as evidenced by the large memorial bell Campana dei Caduti. Cast using bronze of the cannons of the nations that took part in WWI, each evening its 100 tolls spread a universal message of peace.

Map of Rovereto with the main places of interest for CAOs 2020 attendees is available.
