FOURTEENTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
ON COGNITIVE AND NEURAL SYSTEMS
 
May 19–22, 2010
 
Boston University
677 Beacon Street

http://cns.bu.edu/meetings/
 
Sponsored by the Boston University
Center for Adaptive Systems,
Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems (http://cns.bu.edu), and
Center of Excellence for Learning in Education, Science, and Technology (http://celest.bu.edu)
with financial support from the National Science Foundation
 
This interdisciplinary conference is aimed at researchers and students of computational neuroscience, cognitive science, neural networks, neuromorphic engineering, and artificial intelligence. It includes invited lectures and contributed lectures and posters by experts on how the brain and other intelligent systems adapt to a changing world.
