Summer School

BCBT addresses students and researchers involved in research in the ambit of  “Bio-ICT convergence” "Brain Inspired ICT" and “cognitive systems and robotics”. 

BCBT offers a multi-disciplinary research environment where students get involved in several projects proposed by the BCBT scientific committee.

Invited scientists discuss their research topics for the CSN podcast. Click HERE to listen and subscribe to the growing public archive of interviews on neuroscience, autonomous systems...

Fun at the beach of Barcelona!

BCBT offers a great opportunity to learn and exchange ideas with researchers from different fields.

BCBT is positioned at the interface between cognitive systems, robotics, biology,  neuroscience and technology

The Barcelona Cognition, Brain and Technology summer school. Barcelona, Spain, Sept 1-12, 2014

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”. BCBT2014 is organized and supported by the European project Convergence Science Network of Biomimetics and NeuroTechnology, CSNII. 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
