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.
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.
