Like the year before, 2014 kept me busy with studying and teaching, particularly due to my master thesis. Since this involved dealing with ACT-R to a large extent, I seized the chance to travel to the Netherlands together with my colleague Sabine Prezenski, and attended the 4th ACT-R Spring School at the University of Groningen. Under the kind supervision of Menno Nijboer and Professor Niels Taatgen, I could improve and extend my model within the master class. Besides making huge progress in my work, I really enjoyed meeting cognitive modelers from all over the world and spending time in the idyllic city of Groningen. At this particular time, I already knew that I would come back one day (and I indeed would do that in 2018 and again in 2019).
