Columbia Workshop on Brain Circuits, Memory and Computation 2018 <http://www.bionet.ee.columbia.edu/workshops/bcmc/2018>
BCMC 2018
March 15-16, 2018 
Center for Neural Engineering and Computation <http://cnec.columbia.edu/> 
Columbia University, New York, NY, USA


The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in developing
executable models of neural computation/processing of the brain of model organisms.
Of interest are models of computation that consist of elementary units of processing
using brain circuits and memory elements. Elementary units of computation/processing
include population encoding/decoding circuits with biophysically-grounded neuron models,
non-linear dendritic processors for motion detection/direction selectivity, spike processing
and pattern recognition neural circuits, movement control and decision-making circuits, etc.
Memory units include models of spatio-temporal memory circuits, circuit models for memory
access and storage, etc. A major aim of the workshop is to explore the integration of various
sensory and control circuits in higher brain centers.

A Fruit Fly Brain Hackathon <http://www.bionet.ee.columbia.edu/hackathons/ffbh/2018> is being conducted in conjunction with the workshop.
Workshop participants are welcome to attend the hackathon.


Registration is free but all participants have to register <https://bcmc2018.eventbrite.com/>. Thank you!
