The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to bring forth alternative formats for researchers across the globe to connect. Based on the observation that early career researchers, who are even more dependent on conferences and in-person meetings for networking opportunities, Edward Ester (Florida Atlantic University) and Jarrod Lewis-Peacock (University of Texas at Austin) set out to organize a virtual working memory symposium as a venue for trainees to present their work.
Bianca Zickerick, Marlene Rösner, and Laura-Isabelle Klatt presented some of their recent work on visual and auditory working memory. The meeting, which took place from June 1st – 4th 2020, was a great success and brought together like-minded scientists with an interest in working memory from all over the world.
Links to the recorded sessions will be available until the end of June: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1oGZiaek6KhmCktSoiXs0fvG66QYasmMzCScHvLFkTw8/edit
