The 2011 CapoCaccia Cognitive Neuromorphic Engineering Workshop

Capo Caccia, Sardinia, Italy, Wednesday 2011-04-27 to Saturday 2011-05-14


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 this years participants are doctoral and post-doctoral scientists.

The workshop is organized by the Institute of Neuroinformatics and is supported by both EU and US organizations.

Workshop Program

The 2011 Workshop will last 18 days (as opposed to the usual 14). We are reserving the first 4 days for EU review and internal project meetings, and the remaining days for the exciting discussions and hands-on projects.

The workshop unconventional schedule is currently on-line. Morning sessions are characterized by discussions on a specific problem of the day, while afternoons and evenings will focus on projects and tutorials.

Here is a list of the sessions with relevant references to topics being discussed.

To get a feeling of how exciting and unconventional this workshop has been in the past, we encourage you to visit the past workshop pages.

Workshop baby-sitting Service

In an effort to encourage mothers (and fathers and families) that are pursuing an academic career to participate, the workshop will offer a Workshop Babysitting Service to all registered participants.

CSN Fellowhips

The Convergent Science Network of Biomimetic and Biohybrid Systems (CSN) is supporting 7 fellowships for PhD students and post-docs that are interested in attending this year's workshop. Details are here.

IM-CLeVeR Spring School

In parallel with the CapoCaccia workshop, we will be organizing the first IM-CLeVeR Spring School. This is a separate event for the students that have already applied to the Spring School. It will run independently from the rest of the workshop activities.

Students of the Spring School will be registered to the CapoCaccia workshop, and will be able to attend workshop events and talks as well as those of the school. The Spring School will run from May 1 to May 7, but students are encouraged to stay until May 14, to write up their school projects and interact with the rest of the CapoCaccia workshop participants.
