University of East Anglia, Norwich UK
The DFT Bootcamp is designed to be an intensive, 3-day introduction to Dynamic Field Theory. The Bootcamp will cover everything from the basics of dynamic field theory up to our latest research projects. Morning lectures—taught by Prof. John Spencer—will cover the DFT basics, using our book ‘Dynamic Thinking—A Primer on DFT’ as a guide. Afternoon sessions will introduce students to hands-on work with DF models using the COSIVINA framework and the exercises from the book. We will have multiple tutors on hand for these sessions, making them fun and interactive. Application lectures at the end of each day will expose students to new, innovative work with DFT that extends beyond the book. At the end of the Bootcamp, students will have a well-rounded introduction to DFT that can be the stepping stone to amazing things.
Who is the Bootcamp for?
The Bootcamp is aimed at students at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level, postdocs, and faculty members in the areas of embodied cognition, cognitive science, developmental science, cognitive neuroscience, developmental neuroscience, developmental robotics, autonomous robotics, cognitive robotics, and anyone who wants to learn about dynamic field theory.
