The conference was a unique opportunity for cognitive and brain researchers, educational researchers, and neuroscientists to present and share their latest research findings into the science for learning and for education, to discuss what these findings mean across the respective disciplines from cognitive and brain research to education, and to consider the challenge of how these findings may be applied in learning and education.

The program featured international Keynote and Invited Speakers including:

  • Professor Andrew Meltzoff, University of Washington
  • A/Professor Paul Dux, The University of Queensland
