NTU Psychology will hold an online symposium on Visual Cognition in Sport on Wednesday 22nd June 2022. We would like to invite researchers in this area to join us for a day of talks and discussion. The aim is to discuss current research on Visual Cognition in Sport, and allow researchers and grad students to meet. The day will be fairly informal, with a series of 20-minute presentations and opportunities for discussion. We are particularly keen to involve PhD students to help them build their networks.
Please note that times are provisional and will be confirmed nearer the date. If you would like to give a presentation, email email@example.com and we’ll make space in the programme. We welcome talks on any aspect of visual cognition in sport.
