    • A cross-disciplinary meeting that connects psychological and neuroscience research on the mechanisms of learning and brain plasticity
    • The special theme of the LaP2019 meeting is Videogaming and Cognitive Enhancement. However, most of the program will consist of free papers reflecting the broad spectrum of learning and plasticity research
    • The LaP2020 keynote speaker is Professor Simone Kühn (University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany)
    • Informal atmosphere and small size (maximum 60 participants) helps to connect participants and promotes discussion
    • Excellent possibilities for winter sports and other outdoors activities
    • Despite of its location way above the Polar Circle, the congress site is easy to reach by train or by flight
