The Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art is proud to be hosting a series of conversations entitled Afternoons at the Institute.
This talk will give an overview of past, present and future research and development activities of Dr. Cowan, his students and collaborators. This includes several final-year design projects ranging from a slip-detection system for outside workers to sensor-equipped canoe paddles and hockey pucks. Two NSERC-funded CRD projects, one investigating contactless ECG monitoring, the other developing smart sensors for ice hockey will be presented. Candidate projects for future interdisciplinary collaboration will also be identified.
On the face of it, we hold people responsible for their opinions. For instance, we blame them (“How can you think this?!”) for what they think. Also, we address their beliefs directly, by arguing with them and offering reasons for thinking otherwise, and do not just encourage them to rethink some matter. This practice seems to presuppose that we have some sort of direct control over what we believe. However, on reflection it seems plain that we cannot control our beliefs in the way we control our actions: we cannot believe at will. In this talk, Christian Kietzmann will offer an account of how we enjoy active and direct discretion over what we believe.

Over the last decade there has been a surge in academic interest in other-oriented behaviour. Central to this inquiry have been attempts to identify what makes behaviour "prosocial" and to understand the developmental causes and consequences of these fundamental human behaviours. The focus of this talk will be how categorization has affected the measurement and understanding of prosocial behaviour from infancy through adolescence, highlighting outstanding questions that may be beyond the scope of empirical inquiry. Dr. Kristen Dunfield is Associate Professor of Psychology at Concordia University and Member of the Centre for Research in Human Development.
NorthSec is determined to create a high quality security forum composed of a two-day single track conference by the brightest in their field of expertise, followed by an intense 48 hour on-site CTF contest.
The conference aims to develop knowledge about all aspects of gambling and to stimulate discussion and further research — bringing together top scholars to present and discuss the latest trends and findings on gambling and commercial gaming. Topics cover a broad variety of disciplines including economics, public policy, mathematics, social sciences, psychology and treatment.
Au programme? Des conférences dynamiques soulignant l’effervescence de nos travaux en dépendance et la richesse du partenariat avec les milieux cliniques. Ce sera non seulement l’occasion de poser un regard sur l’état actuel des connaissances, mais aussi de se questionner sur les avenues que nous devons encore explorer dans le vaste champ des dépendances.
