August 12-16, 2019. Neuroscience and Architecture.

A Week-long course sponsored by the New School of Architecture and Design in San Diego. I am presenting on the first day and then come back for a panel on the last. I objected to the emphasis on Neuroscience: that is too low a level to be of use. It is Applied Cognitive Science that is the right level. The organizers love neuroscience so they have ignored me. I'm also labeled s a Designer (which is correct), but not as a Scientist: hey, I am both!)


October 8-11. 17th annual FiRe (Future in Review) Conference.
 The Lodge at Torrey Pines, La Jolla, CA
