Dear Colleague,

we would like to invite you to register for the 3rd 

Osnabrueck Computational Cognition Alliance Meeting (OCCAM 2013) on
"The Brain as a Self-Organized Dynamical System"
May 29-31, 2013.

List of invited speakers:

Elizabeth Buffalo, Emory University*
Sen Cheng, Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum*
Gabriel Curio, Charite*
Mathew Diamond, SISSA*
Markus Diesmann, Forschungszentrum Jülich*

(* confirmed)

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 is April 3, 2013 (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 lunch on the last day.

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 dynamical systems 
3. Mechanisms for probabilistic inference

The OCCAM 2013 theme is: "The Brain as a Self-Organized Dynamical
There will also be a poster session where conference participants will
have the opportunity to present their work.
Best regards,

Frank Jaekel, Peter König, Gordon Pipa (Organizing committee)
