The challenges facing society today demand innovative approaches, creative solutions and wider resonances that can only be obtained by drawing on multiple perspectives.
In its third edition, Off the Lip integrates research in the arts, sciences, humanities, and engineering in a radically transdisciplinary event that also actively engages the business community and the public at large.
Keynote speaker: Dr Joel Pearson, Associate Professor, University of New South Wales Sydney, Australia
Dr Joel Pearson is a psychologist, neuroscientist, and public intellectual who works at the forefront of science, innovation, agile science and new mind measurement technologies. His research focuses on the mechanisms and application of mental imagery, hallucinations, decision-making, the science of intution, memory, metacognition, visual perception, learning, attention and awareness.
He is the founder of the Pearson Lab for cognitive science at UNSW Sydney, which studies cognition through behavioural psychophysics, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
We invite you to join us in CogNovo's latest, excitingly diverse ideas exchange.
CogNovo is a multidisciplinary collaborative programme linking the sciences, arts and humanities, working under the banner of cognitive innovation. Through the notion of cognitive innovation, we approach creativity as a bootstrapping cognitive process not exclusively concerned with conscious human thought and action but with a broader conceptualisation of adaptive behaviour that is intrinsic to our engagement with the world.
Off the Lip 2017 welcomes submissions in topics related to cognitive innovation and creativity. In recognition of the profound changes facing society today, we especially welcome submissions around the theme of Cognitive Innovation and Displacement.
