Computational Psychiatry & Computational Psychosomatics Seminar

The Computational Psychiatry and Computational Psychosomatics Seminar (CPS) provides a forum for discussing the development of clinically relevant computational tools and/or their applications to psychiatry and psychosomatics. This seminar is intended to be complementary to the annual Computational Psychiatry Course (CPC), by TNU Zurich and intends to build bridges between computational scientists and clinicians. To this end, it invites both clinicians and modelers and is designed to foster in-depth exchange, with ample time for discussion.


This seminar takes place on Wednesdays, 4.15 pm – 5.45 pm
