*Join the Barcelona Cognition, Brain and Technology summer school*

*(Barcelona, Sept 2-13, 2013)*

You are invited to participate in the 6th edition of the Barcelona
Cognition, Brain and Technology summer school (bcbt.upf.edu) that will be
held from September 2nd until 13 in Barcelona, Spain. BCBT is a two-week
annual international summer school that promotes a shared system-level
understanding of the architecture of the brain and its possible emulation
in artificial systems. BCBT addresses students and researchers involved in
research at the interface between the brain and technology such as in the
areas of  “Bio-ICT convergence”, "Brain inspired ICT", “cognitive systems
and robotics” and “Human-machine symbiosis”.

BCBT features in depth lectures by prominent researchers
from neuroscience, artificial intelligence and related fields. In addition,
tutorials on cutting edge technologies and methods are presented such as
the simulation and analysis of large-scale neuromimetic systems and their
validation using complex robotic systems. Participants will engage in
challenging projects that are realized with state-of-the-art technologies
available during the workshop. Project results will be presented at the end
of the school

BCBT is organized by the European FP7 Future and Emerging Technologies
coordination action Convergent Science Network of Biomimetic and
NeuroTechnology (http://www.csnetwork.eu/) with additional support from the
European FP7 project Goal-Leaders (http://www.goal-leaders.eu/). CSN is
offering a number of student fellowships. BCBT can accommodate about 75
participants and the registration fee is 350€. BCBT is hosted by the
Universitat Pompeu Fabra (http://www.upf.edu/campus/en/comunicacio/) and
the meeting location is close to the center of Barcelona and the beach.
Students are required to attend the school for the full duration and
participate in collaborative projects.

Register through our webpage
 or write to bcbt at upf.edu for more information.

We hope to see you in Barcelona!
