(Apologies for duplicate postings)
Dear Colleague,

we would like to invite you to register for the 2nd 

Osnabrueck Computational Cognition Alliance Meeting (OCCAM 2012) on
"The Brain as an Information Processing System"
June 4-6 2012.

The workshop will take place in Osnabrueck, Germany, and will be
hosted by the Institute of Cognitive Science (University of
Osnabrueck). Details can be found below and on the following webpage:


The registration deadline has been extended until April 23rd, 2012
(first come first served). The registration fee is 100,- Euros. This
fee covers the workshop attendance incl. coffee, buffet on the first
day, and the conference dinner.

The goal of the OCCAM workshop series is to foster our understanding
of mechanisms and principles of information processing in
self-organized hierarchical and recurrent systems. Our knowledge of
such systems is still very limited despite being a focus of research
for many years. The OCCAM workshop series aims at understanding the
principles of information processing with a particular focus on 3
major topics:

1. Neural coding and representation in hierarchical systems
2. Self-organisation in dynamic systems 
3. Mechanisms for probabilistic inference

The OCCAM 2012 theme is: "The Brain as an Information Processing
List of invited speakers:

Matthias Bethge, Tuebingen*
Andreas Engel, Hamburg*
Marc Ernst, Bielefeld*
Rainer Goebel, Maastricht*
Judith Hirsch, Los Angeles
