2012 CapoCaccia Cognitive Neuromorphic Engineering Workshop

by Giacomo Indiveri last modified Dec 20, 2011 02:20 PM
The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for international EU and non-EU researchers to discuss and explore concepts and methods necessary for advancing neuromorphic systems towards a more cognitive quality of behavior. We take as our foundation participants members of a group of already related EU groups that are presently and recently funded; a number of persons who have been involved in the US NSF Telluride Neuromorphic Engineering Workshop; and a number of invited guests. About 50% of the participants are doctoral and post-doctoral scientists.

The 2012 CapoCaccia Cognitive Neuromorphic Engineering Workshop will be held from April 29 to May 12, 2012. It will take place Capo Caccia, close to Alghero, Sardinia, Italy.

It is organized by the Institute of Neuroinformatics and is supported by both EU and US funding organizations.

Workshop Program

The 2012 Workshop will last two weeks and will involve both exciting interactive discussions and hands-on projects.

The workshop schedule is not fully defined yet, but the themes that we will focus on this year include cortical development, multi-scale neural circuit experimental and modeling approaches, state-dependent computation, brain-machine interfaces, VLSI implementations of neural processing systems, plasticity in real and silicon neural systems, memristive devices and phase-change materials, and of course cognitive behaving neuromorphic systems.

Specifically, we expect to focus on anatomy, physiology and development of the nervous system in the first few days, gradually shifting to modeling, learning and state-dependent computation toward the end of the first weeks and the beginning of the second week, and then moving to hardware implementations and future emerging technologies (e.g. memristors) toward the second half of the second week.

There will be "horizontal" themes such as brain-machine interfaces, event-based computation, spike timing dependent plasticity, and others that will span the whole two weeks.

Morning sessions will be characterized by discussions on a specific ''problem of the day'', while afternoons and evenings will focus on projects and tutorials.

To get an idea of the amazing amount of work that gets done during this workshop, explore the 2011 work-group pages.
