BCBT summerschool 2011

BCBT 2012  coming soon!!

Sept 3-14, 2012 Barcelona, Spain

BCBT's principal aim is to promote a shared systems-level understanding of the functional architecture of the brain and its possible emulation in artificial systems. With respect to FP7 this means that BCBT is catering to the research communities addressed by the  “bio-ict convergence”, Brain Inspired ICT and “cognitive systems-robotics”. BCBT is aiming at making a positive contribution to the development of an active and integrated multi-disciplinary research environment in these areas.

On this site you can find video registrations of the 2011 talks and links to interviews with the speakers. Registered participants also have access to papers and other details.

BCBT caters to the students and researchers involved in projects that are in the ambit of  “bio-ict convergence” "brain Inspired ICT", “cognitive systems-robotics” 

***All BCBT participants should be members of "The Convergent Science Network of biomimetic and biohybrid systems" (CSN)

BCBT will offer up to 30 student slots for the practical workshops while as many researchers of the associated projects can sign up to attend the presentations and discussion sessions as are interested. For the lectures the limit will be placed at 75 given the capacity of the available lecture theatre.
