Join us for the annual *"Barcelona Cognition, Brain and Technology summer
school - BCBT2015 *" (see* http://bcbt.upf.edu/bcbt15/home
<http://bcbt.upf.edu/bcbt15/home>*) to be held from August 31st to September
11th, 2015 in Barcelona Spain.

The BCBT summer school is part of a series of events organized by the
Convergent Science Network of Biomimetics and Neurotechnology (
http://csnetwork.eu/) and is positioned at the interface between biology
and future and emerging technologies with an emphasis on the principles
underlying brains and their translation to avant-garde technologies. BCBT
promotes a shared systems-level understanding of the functional
architecture of the brain and its possible emulation in artificial systems.



This is the 8th year of BCBT, which has ran with great success in previous
years thanks to an excellent line-up of outstanding speakers (see
bcbt.upf.edu for previous editions of the school). BCBT lectures are
available online (see http://csnetwork.eu/) as well as the CSN *Podcast
interviews *with many of the BCBT speakers.

 BCBT caters to students and researchers involved in projects that are in
the ambit of “BIO-ICT convergence”, "Brain Inspired ICT", “Cognitive
systems-robotics”.

BCBT will offer up to 30 student slots for the practical workshops while as
many researchers can register to attend the presentations and discussion
sessions, as they are interested.

The atmosphere of the BCBT summer school is informal with the goal to
stimulate in-depth discussion. There are presentations in the morning,
usually 2, with the afternoons reserved for tutorials and projects for
student participants and road-mapping workshops or further discussion for
senior scientists.

For the 2015 edition we plan a *1st week* of the school addressing
*Evolutionary
and Developmental aspects of nervous systems and behavior *while the *2nd
week* will include presentations aimed at the investigation of *Decision
making*. Friday 11 is reserved for the presentation of the student projects
to which everybody is invited.


*Application deadline: July 27th, 2015*
