The 6th European Summer School on Computational and Mathematical Modeling of Cognition

Szklarska Poręba, Poland
9 - 23 July 2022

Most areas of cognitive psychology have recognized the power of computational and mathematical models and have embraced their benefits to rigorous theorizing. One illustration of this trend is the growing popularity of Bayesian approaches to cognitive modelling. This powerful trend comes, however, at a cost: The complexity of models and modelling techniques renders it increasingly difficult for non-experts to acquire the necessary skills and then keep pace with developments.
