Subject: Call for abstracts for Cognitive Science and Neuroscience
StanConnect 2021

Dear all,

As part of StanConnect 2021
we intend to propose a session on cognitive science and neuroscience on
November 26, 2021, time to be confirmed (depending on the location of the
majority of the speakers).

(If you don’t already know, Stan (https://mc-stan.org/
is a state-of-the-art platform for statistical modeling and
high-performance statistical computation.)

We’re looking for contributed talks for the proposal to StanConnect. If
your are interested in giving a talk, please reply in the following
discourse thread
with a title, a 250-words abstract, and your location/time zone. We’ll
receive abstracts until April 21, 2021 11:59 PM (CEST, UTC+02:00). The
selection will be based on an open poll in the discourse thread for 24
hours during April 22, 2021 .

Contributed talks should feature Stan implementations that are useful for
interesting problems in cognitive science and neuroscience, including
computational modeling, psychometrics, classification and prediction, and
domain-specific workflows.

Submitting an abstract entails the commitment to a 10-20 minutes talk (tbd)
and the submission or link to a self-contained notebook, such as
knitr/rmarkdown or Jupyter (by November 12, 2021 ). The notebook should
include separate files containing the Stan program, data, initializations
if used, and a permissive license for everything such as CC BY 4.0.

The organizers of this StanConnect session welcome and encourage
contributions from all scientists. We strongly value diversity and are
committed to creating an equitable environment where human diversity is
welcomed and respected. While no list can hope to be comprehensive, we
explicitly honor diversity in: age, culture, ethnicity, gender identity or
expression, language, national origin, political beliefs, profession, race,
religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
