Multilevel Dynamics of Human and Animal Sleep: Mathematical Models Meet Data

TBC

This interdisciplinary workshop features leading international experts in sleep and circadian rhythms, mathematical modelling and data analytics. The primary aim of the meeting is to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration, connecting those with data to those who build mathematical models and develop analysis tools. 

Making Sleep: New Insights for a New Public Health?

TBC

The proposed workshop will bring together scholars and practitioners to debate and discuss how we might move beyond traditional confines and work towards a new national sleep strategy.

Feedback Literacy: From education to professional practice

TBC

This one-day international symposium will explore how the feedback literacy of teachers, workplace supervisors, and healthcare professionals influences the impact of feedback on learning, development, and behavior change. Following a keynote talk and a choice of masterclasses, a series of lightning talks from delegates will form the basis for multidisciplinary discussion sessions, in order to facilitate the development of a research and practice agenda in this area.

Pulsations in Intermediate-mass, Massive and/or Multiple Stars

TBC

This breakthrough international workshop will pioneer the potential of asteroseismology in the analysis of binary stars. It will connect experts in these fields to forge new approaches and techniques that build on the wealth of data delivered by 21st-century astronomical missions like Corot, Kepler, TESS and BRITE, and advanced stellar evolution modelling. Binary systems are rarely investigated using asteroseismology because they are difficult to interpret and understand. Yet binaries are half of all stars and their key properties, such as rotation and tides, make it possible to extract far more from observations and reach a far more complete understanding of the complex evolution of interacting stars. Talks will cover a wide range of topics : observations and models of binary stars, underlying physical processes, nucleosynthesis, and novel methods such as machine learning.

 

Mutual Intelligibility: Language, Culture, Cognition

TBC

This workshop will provide a foundation for the development of multi-disciplinary research collaborations on mutual intelligibility, with the aim of gaining deeper understanding of this complex and important phenomenon, and identifying how various theoretical and empirical research methods can be combined and utilised in future research.

Behavioural Science for Usable Security

TBC

The workshop features keynotes from international experts in electronic voting and in human behaviour and will host an interdisciplinary research incubator looking to solve concrete challenges.  Scholars from a variety of disciplines are welcome to take part.
