Dear Community,
The paper submission deadline of SAC2016 conference has 
been extended to September 21. Please consider to submit a 
contribution to the NeuroComputing track.


==============================
NeuroComputing Track -  Call For Papers
==============================
The NeuroComputing Track has been proposed as a track of 
the Symposium on applied Computing (SAC2016) that will be 
held in Pisa from 4 to 8 April 2016.
The ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has been a 
primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, 
computer engineers, software engineers, and application 
developers from around the world. SAC 2016 is sponsored by 
the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing 
(SIGAPP).

==============================
TRACK AIM
The development of computation models of the nervous 
system and neural processes has risen at a rapid pace. 
Developing neuro-inspired computing paradigms that mimic 
nervous system function fosters our model understanding of 
the biological system and targets technical applications 
in artificial systems. Today, combined efforts in the 
fields of the neuroscience and computer science in 
interdisciplinary research projects like the Human Brain 
Project enable the simulation of spiking biological neural 
networks with millions of neurons. In order to deal with 
the complexity and scaling of such networks a new 
generation of appropriate tool is needed to simulate the 
neural network in real-time. Neuromorphic hardware and 
supercomputers are the ideal candidates on the hardware 
side, and on the software side tools should ease the 
development and support the researcher during the 
evaluation by offering a toolchain for the implementation 
and simulation.
The aim of the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) 
Track on NeuroComputing is to gather innovative works 
related to the application of computational techniques for 
the brain simulation, as well as the system software, 
middleware, interactive computational steering and 
visualization support necessary to create and simulate 
multi-scale brain models and to address the hard-scaling 
challenges of whole brain modelling.
