International Workshop “Learning from the Past: Soviet/Russian Contributions to a Science of Anticipation”

The Honorary Fellow of the HWK, Prof. Dr. Mihai Nadin (University of Texas at Dallas), organizes a special event at the HWK: a workshop about early research on anticipation in Russia and the Soviet Union. Those exciting theories and results could not be accessed by scientists in the West for the longest time – mostly because of political and language barriers. The workshop will take place from September 1 to 3 and features a fine selection of talks by those who were either students of the pioneers of anticipation research or decided to follow their work and to transfer their concepts to modern research in the life sciences. The goal of the meeting is not merely to show the history of those early developments in physiology, psychology, learning and plasticity research, cybernetics, and systems theory, but to look at their current scientific relevance for the benefit of present research. With a special focus on A. R. Luria’s work, there will also be presentations on the pioneering efforts of P. K. Anokhin, V. B. Schvrykov, L. E. Tsitolovsky, A. A. Ukhtomsky, D. N. Uznadze, and L. A. Orbeli.

More information on the workshop as well as the program can be found on our internet pages: http://www.h-w-k.de/index.php?id=2155 This event should be of special interest to colleagues working on learning, plasticity, systems/ computational research, clinical research, physiology, and related topics – young scientists are specifically welcome. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED by Marion Daniel no later than August 15, 2014. Registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis due to limited space.
