An unconventional schedule

This workshop is aimed at identifying key problems in neuromorphic cognition and finding possible ways to solve them through creative discussions and brain-storming sessions.

Power Point is banned

It is not a forum for presenting your latest results, and impressing your colleagues with fancy presentations. Therefore be prepared to actively participate in the discussion sessions, but also to not present slides and pre-packaged talks.

We organized morning and afternoon discussion sessions centered around a specific problem of the day. We appointed session chairs who are responsible for:

  1. coordinating the session among themselves in order to present a coherent "problem of the day" and manage a cohesive discussion;
  2. inviting key speakers among the workshop participants (or volunteering themselves) to give short presentations to introduce the problem and set the stage;
  3. making sure that all workshop participants are actively involved in the rest of the discussion session;
  4. appointing a volunteer that notes down the main topics of discussions and summarizes the possible solutions identified by the end of the discussion session on the workshop wiki.

We pre-assigned session chair names in the schedule. This is of course a first attempt. The schedule should be considered as very flexible and adaptive. It will evolve and adapt to the topics that get discussed during the workshop. If you feel you'd like to be added to (or removed from) the current list of session chairs, please inform giacomo as soon as possible.

The late afternoons and evenings are left open for hands-on projects, internal EU project meetings, and additional self-organized brainstorming sessions.
