The 2015 CapoCaccia Cognitive Neuromorphic Engineering Workshop

Monday 2015-04-27 to Saturday 2015-05-09, Alghero, Sardinia, Italy

CapoCaccia workshop highlights

The workshop

This is a very unconventional and exciting workshop where we bring together experts in neuroscience, neuromorphic engineering, cognitive sciences and robotics to discuss about the open problems in these fields and attempt to find routes to their resolution. We take as our foundation participants members of a group of already related EU groups that are involved in presently funded projects, a number of persons who have been involved in the Telluride Neuromorphic Engineering Workshop, and additional colleagues and collaborators. The workshop has open and highly interactive discussion sessions in the morning; hands-on projects, tutorial, and hardware and software jamming sessions (workgroups) in the afternoons; and free-form discussions in the evenings, while overseeing the Mediterranean sea in a beautiful and isolated location.

Funding: the workshop is supported by the Institute of Neuroinformatics, University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, as well as both EU and US organizations.
