CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

------------------------------------------
Join us for the annual*"Barcelona Cognition, Brain and Technology summer 
school -BCBT2018*" to be held 3-14September2018in Barcelona, Spain.

The summer school has been part of a series of events organized by the 
European coordination action Convergent Science Network of Biomimetics 
and Neurotechnology (_https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__csnetwork.eu_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=QYJQwSHy-1N_euJWh0UzSaCbzX9LmuqMvtNCoNBufmg&s=yJFnjYlOEaTWSP172r68JPAYiF8bpvjplJMp9IkvFw0&e=

For the 2018 edition of the BCBT summer school, we are counting on 
thesupport of the Human Brain Project 
(*HBP*,**humanbrainproject.eu/en),the Institute of Bioengineeringof 
Catalonia (*IBEC*,ibecbarcelona.eu

This is the 11th edition ofBCBT, which has run with great success 
in previous years thanks to an excellent line-up of outstanding 
speakersincluding Nobel Laureate winner Edvard Moser and luminaries in 
the fields of neurosciences, psychology, biology, robotics and AI, such 
as M. Arbib, S. Grilner, G. Rizzolatti, among many.

BCBTcaters to students and researchers involved in projects that are in 
the ambit of “BIO-ICT convergence”, "Brain Inspired ICT", “Cognitive 
systems-robotics”, “Cognitive and neural systems”, “Foundations of 
social cognition”. TheBCBTschool promotes a shared systems-level 
understanding of the functional architecture of the brain and its 
possible emulation in artificial systems.

BCBTwill offer up to 30 student slots for the practical workshops, while 
as many researchers can register to attend the presentations and 
discussion sessions as they are interested.

The atmosphere of theBCBTsummer school is informal with the goal to 
stimulate in-depth discussion.

There are 2 or 3 presentations in the morning, with the afternoons 
reserved for tutorials and projects for student participantsand 
senior scientists with road-mapping workshops and further discussion.

For the2018edition, we plan a*1^st week*of the school addressing*System 
level understanding of the brain and its emulation in advanced 
technology.*The*2^nd week*will include presentations aimed at the 
investigation of*Learning and Memory, Brain Function and 
Behavior**.*Friday14 is reserved for the presentation of the student 
projects to which everybody is invited.


*Application deadline: 20 July2018*

BCBTis organized by:

Tony Prescott, Sheffield University - UK, Paul Verschure. ICREA and IBEC
