Methods in Numerical Cognition Workshop

Date January 7, 2019

Venue Eötvös Loránd University, Faculty of Education and Psychology, Budapest, Hungary, Kazinczy street, 23-27, Room 4 on ground floor


About the workshop

Researchers working in the field of numerical cognition often have a hard time to find the ideal methods that fit the research aim best and also please the reviewers. Some methods are less known, some of them are debated, and consequences of some methods are not studied yet. For example, how should the subitizing range be calculated, how should the visual features of non-symbolic stimuli be controlled, how should the counting knowledge of preschoolers be measured?

The Methods in Numerical Cognition Workshop aims to be a forum for presenting and discussing any methods related to numerical cognition, including paradigms, tests, analyses methods, etc. The main aim of the workshop is to discuss these methods in details.

In line with the aim of the workshop, the talks can be 10-15 minutes long (the time will depend on the number of submitted talks and will be announced when the final program is available), and the discussion of the talks is practically unlimited (within a reasonable limit).

But there is more.

During the workshop we launch a new interactive directory-website ( that collects methods in numerical cognition, and where researchers can share their experience and opinion about these methods. This directory can be considered as an online handbook, but it can be continuously updated. Also, it is a review system with much more transparent methods than most of the current peer-review options.

The details of this interactive numerical cognition methodological website will be introduced as a part of the program, and workshop participants can discuss the details of the functioning of this database, too. Also, participants will be able to start uploading method summaries, and to start evaluating uploaded methods. For three months, the website will be available only for the participants of the workshop.


Talks Find the order of the talks and the abstracts.

Slides Find the slides at the OSF Meetings page of the workshop.

Schedule Because the talks have a limited time (10 minutes) but not the discussion, it is not possible to tell the exact starting time of the specific talks. The workshop starts at 10am, and we estimate to finish it by 7pm, but exact timing depends on the discussions of the talks. Time of the breaks are approximations, we will start the break at the nearest planned time when a discussion ends.

17:45 General panel. In the general panel anyone can raise an issue, ask a question, share important experience, etc., then anyone can reflect on that topic. The point is that problems that are not related to a specific talk can also be discussed here.
