I thought the comp-neuro community might be interested in IARPA's new CCPC
RFI, described briefly below.  The complete document is available at

Request for Information (RFI) - Cortical Computing Primitives and

Posted Date: July 29, 2013
Responses Due: September 30, 2013


The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) is seeking
information about the current state of the art in "executable" (i.e.
instantiable) models of cortical computing primitives that are supported by
known neuroanatomy, as well as strategies for advancing these models based
on new and emerging techniques in connectomics. This information may be
used to formulate a new program aimed at developing novel machine learning
algorithms based on high fidelity representations of cortical
microcircuits. The current request for information (RFI) is issued solely
for information gathering and planning purposes and does not constitute a
formal solicitation for proposals. The following sections of this RFI
contain details of the scope of technical areas of interest, along with
instructions for the submission of responses.
