Dear all,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the:
**********
Kyutech-FIAS Joint Workshop on Brain System Technology -From Brain to Technology

February 8, 2012, Kyushu Institute of Technology, 
Graduate School of Life Science and Systems Engineering, 
Kitakyushu, Japan

Detail: http://www.kyutech.ac.jp/archives/001/201201/Kyutech-FIAS%20JWS_Leaflet2012.01.28.pdf

The brain inspired system (Brain-IS) as well as neurotechnology 
researches have made remarkable progress, having potentials for 
innovation of the system technology. The brain inspired innovation 
may be called the “Brain System Technology.” It will be able to 
revolute our future contribution to society, but may also be a 
fundamental research for the next generation of intelligent 
robotics. As an international center of excellent in the Brain-IS 
research, we hold a joint workshop on brain system technology, 
together with Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies in Germany, 
based on the following proposals: Excellent outcomes, resulted 
from efforts of the Brain-IS and neurotechnology, significantly 
affect researchers who can lead both the fields of brain science 
and system technology. Welcome you all come to our workshop (free 
of charge and no registration).
