Your are invited to take part in this week's happy hour, the theme of which will be "Transitions: From Summer to Fall". This gathering will allow us to take some time off to relax and have a drink among friends. Please take a moment to look at the program below. We hope to see you there! - The Organizers PROGRAM 4pm Opening Plenary Dave Meyer On Asking Questions: A Forum Retrospective A key aspect of any academic discussion is the ability to properly, and efficiently formulate and ask questions of speakers. A good question can serve many purposes: to confuse, confound, or scare. However, a poorly delivered question do just the opposite. In his talk, Dr. Meyer will discuss his techniques and strategies, relying on both experimental and field data. In the course of the plenary you will be confronted with such classics as, "What's in your pockets?" and "Do you mean to tell me that that isn't significant?". In addition, Dr. Meyer will present some new, interesting data on the ability to perform additional tasks (such as eating lunch) while asking questions. 4:05pm Banquet 4:10pm Panel Computational Modelling of Happy Hour Stevens, G. & Zhang, J. _A computational model of graduate student attachment_ Mueller, S. & Zhang, J. _Mathematical stuff you couldn't possibly understand_ Meyer, D., Schumacher, E., Glass, J., Seymour, T., Fencsik, D., Mueller, S., & Kieras, D. _Take that Hal: An EPIC model of the cocktail party effect (and there's no bottleneck)_ 4:15pm Invited Address Bill Gehring Wait, make it a Molson: Errors while ordering beer 4:20pm Panel Neuroimaging Reuter-Lorenz, P. _Airport X-ray scanners: A low-cost alternative to PET_ Polk, T. _Martha Farah's X-ray vision: A biological imaging methodology_ Jonides, J. & Smith, E. _Working memory correlates with beer preferance_ 4:25pm Buffet, and networking 4:30pm Panel Problem Solving and Decision Making Veinott, E., & Yates, J.
