Columbia Workshop on Brain Circuits, Memory and Computation 2020
BCMC 2020 
March 16-17, 2020 
Davis Auditorium, CEPSR 
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://fruitflybrain.org/hackathons.html> is being conducted in conjunction with the workshop. Workshop participants are welcome to attend the hackathon.
