Letter for participation to BCBT 2011
BCBT is an annual international summer school that promotes a shared systems-level understanding of the functional architecture of the brain and its possible emulation in artificial systems. BCBT addresses students and researchers involved in research at the interface between brains and technology such as in the ambit of “Bio-ICT convergence” "Brain Inspired ICT" and “cognitive systems and robotics”. BCBT is an school organized by SPECS (UPF) and supported by the Convergent Science Network of Biomimetic and Biohybrid Systems CSN network consortium (http://www.csnetwork.eu/). Students will have the opportunity to attend lectures from prominent scientist in the field of brain research, neuroscience, artificial intelligent and related fields. Student will also attend tutorials and work on projects that will be presented at the end of the 2 weeks of the summer school.
BCBT can accommodate about 50 participants. Student participants are required to attend the school for the full duration and perform a collaborative project.
