WINTER STORM - intensive training session in language science

You are cordially invited to participate in Winter Storm!

Winter Storm is a FREE 2-week intensive training session in language science, covering the latest software and hardware techniques and language diversity research topics in the fields of cognitive neuroscience and computational/neural modeling.

Winter Storm takes place on campus Monday through Friday from 9-4 from January 11-22 (excluding MLK day). Daily activities include breakfast, morning seminars on hardware and software techniques, guest speaker lunch presentations, and research focus groups. Winter Storm is brought to you by U of Md's NSF-IGERT program in Biological and Computational Foundations of Language Diversity. This is an interdisciplinary program that brings together students and faculty from Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Hearing & Speech, Human Development, Linguistics, NACS, Philosophy, Psychology, and Second Language Acquisition.

Winter storm is open to all interested participants. A full schedule will be sent out at a later date to everyone who signs up. Participants need not attend every session to participate. For more information or to sign-up, please contact Csilla Kajtar by January 1st. More information will also appear at
