27th ECNP Congress of Applied and Translational Neuroscience
18-21 October 2014, Berlin
The ECNP Congress is Europe's largest meeting on applied and translational neuroscience. Annually, it brings together between 4,000 and 7,000 psychiatrists, neuroscientists, neurologists and psychologists from around the world to discuss the latest developments in the science and treatment of disorders of the brain. Spanning the spectrum of human mood, behaviour, cognition and emotion - from basic research to clinical care - the ECNP Congress is Europe's premier showcase for new research, treatments and technologies in applied brain science.

New ways of delivering HE - MOOCs and technology-enhanced learning
21 October 2014, London
This conference looks at the future for Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) - and the increased use of technology-enhanced learning more widely in Higher Education. It comes as government pushes for the UK to become a world leader in online learning and also follows a Higher Education Academy review of flexible pedagogies, with the technology-enhanced learning strand published in January.
Sessions will focus on the development of MOOCs, including their potential for online learning and Transnational Education, as well as concerns around implementation and accreditation of modules and the possible threat they pose to traditional teaching. Other key themes are likely to include outcomes and recommendations from FutureLearn's BETA pilot courses running currently. Delegates will also discuss ways in which Higher Education is currently taught and the increased influence technology is having on this, for example the greater use of blended and e-learning. We are delighted that Dr Alison Le Cornu, Academic Lead, Flexible Learning, Higher Education Academy and Stephen Haggard, Author, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills Research Paper, The Maturing of the MOOC and Independent Consultant, Online Learning have agreed to deliver keynote addresses at this seminar, together with a senior speaker confirmed from HEFCE.

Euroscience Open Forum - ESOF 2014
21-26 June 2014, Copenhagen
ESOF2014 offers a platform where researchers, journalists, policy makers, students and organisations can meet and debate European research and global challenges.
The 2014 meeting is entitled “Science Building Bridges”. The aim of this event is to raise awareness of science in the public and to strengthen the effective “bridges” between science and society.
The scientific programme, covering 8 themes, consists of keynote lectures, seminars, workshops and engaging formats for debating the latest research.
Smart Data Forum
25-26 June 2014, Nice, France
The exponential growth in the volume of personal and professional data raises new challenges. The digital deluge will lead to radically different patterns of behavior on the part of individuals and corporations, revolutionizing service delivery and value creation. Properly processed and analyzed, this data can become “Smart Data”.
Smart Data 2014 is positioned as a think tank for the monetization of digital assets, delivering: • new viewpoints for project initiators in corporate and governmental environments • expert guidance on the protection and analysis of big data • an overview of best practices and the latest solutions.
Transfigurations: Curatorial and Artistic Research in an Age of Migrations
19-26 June 2014, MACBA - Capella, Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona
Within the framework of MeLa Research Field 04, the fieldwork developed by the Royal College of Art into curatorial and artistic research will culminate in the exhibition “Transfigurations: Curatorial and artistic research in an age of migrations”.
How are globalisation, digital media and changing patterns of migration affecting our understanding and experience of the contemporary work of art, and how are contemporary artists engaging with curators to think about the condition of the contemporary through their work, its display and collection? How are curators working with new forms of artistic production, particularly ‘immaterial’ works of art, that fall outside conventional forms of display, collection and archive?
This research exhibition brings together a rich group of international artists and curators:
• MACBA in Barcelona with curator Bartomeu Marí and artist Lawrence Abu-Hamdan
• Bétonsalon in Paris with curator Mélanie Bouteloup and artist Camille Henrot
• Whitechapel Gallery in London with curator Sofia Victorino and artist Kader Attia
• Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam with curators Jelle Bouwhuis / Kerstin Winking and artist Quinsy Gario
• Royal College of Art in London with Paul Goodwin and artist Leo Asemota
In particular, the research exhibition reflects on the challenges and opportunities of curatorial and artistic research in the 21st century, and the rise of new forms of practice such as performance, sound, and video which are both expanding the range of artists’ interests and challenging conventional ideas of the ‘art object’ in museums and galleries. Following what has been described as ‘the curatorial turn’ and ‘the educational turn’ the exhibition considers how complex the interface is between issues of representation, globalisation, collection and object, curating, programming, audiences, and technology.
