Navigation Journal Club
The Navigation Journal Club is an open weekly meeting of the Geographic Information Visualization and Analysis (GIVA) group at the University of Zurich. Interested researchers and students from other departments/universities are welcome to join. Each week, we will discuss a reading related to navigation as a group. The first four weeks will focus on classic readings in navigation research (see below). Afterwards, we will move on to more recent readings on the topics of navigation in neuroscience, navigation from a cognitive science perspective, computational modeling of navigation, and real-world navigation studies.
Time: Mondays at 16H.
Place: Room 33C, Floor K, Building Y25, Irchel Campus.
