The Barcelona Cognition, Brain and Technology summer school. Barcelona, Spain, Sept 2-13, 2013
BCBT is an annual international summer school that promotes a shared systems-level understanding of the functional architecture of the brain and its possible emulation in artificial systems. BCBT addresses students and researchers involved in research at the interface between brains and technology such as in the ambit of “Bio-ICT convergence” "Brain Inspired ICT" and “cognitive systems and robotics”. BCBT2013 is co-organized and supported by the European project Convergence Science Network of Biomimetics and NeuroTechnology, CSNII, and by Goal Leaders " Biologically-constrained architectures for the next generation of adaptive robots”. Students will have the opportunity to attend lectures from prominent scientists in the field of brain research, neuroscience, artificial intelligent and related fields. Students will also attend tutorials and work on projects that will be presented at the end of the 2 weeks of the summer school
