The DEC AltAc (Alternative to Academia) is a monthly seminar where individuals with a cognitive science background show researchers and students in cognitive science at the DEC the many ways their knowledge in cognitive science can be applied to the "real" (aka non-academic) world. 

The seminars can be taken by students completing the ENS diploma for credit. Credits will be attributed based on attendance. 

Seminars are only open to DEC members and Cogmaster students. If you would like to listen to the talk, please view the video recordings and contact the speakers directly if your questions were not addressed.”
