SRD 2018

Spring Research Day
Friday, April 12th, 2019
9:00 am - 4:00 pm, Walter Library 402, University of Minnesota -TC

Spring Research Day (SRD) is an annual all-day, university-wide symposium that showcases the work of graduate students. We are inviting non-Center for Cognitive Sciences (CCS) student members to participate in sharing their cognitive science and/or sensory science-related research alongside CCS student members. All University of Minnesota graduate students are invited to submit abstracts for a poster or 20-minute oral presentation.


Feel free to present developing research ideas or recycle previously presented posters! We want to get diverse research projects from a wide range of departments and programs to participate. The Center for Cognitive Sciences encourages interdisciplinary involvement for all departments!

The keynote speaker this year is Michael Webster, Ph.D., Foundation Professor of Psychology, at the University of Nevada. Dr. Webster's lab examines the cognitive processes underlying visual adaptation to environmental changes using behavioral, computational, and neuroimaging techniques. For more information about his research, visit:

Breakfast (coffee & pastries) and lunch (sandwiches) will be provided. Student presenters will be invited to attend a dinner with our keynote speaker.

If you have any questions, please contact Caitlin Sisk at or Kristi Oeding at (Poster boards are large enough to accommodate most posters.)
