Computational Neuroscience, Neurotechnology and Neuro-inspired AI Autumn School

Venue: In Person & Online


Event Notes:

The Intelligent Systems Research Centre (ISRC) at Ulster University, Derry~Londonderry campus is delighted to announce that the international Computational Neuroscience, Neurotechnology and Neuro-inspired AI (ISRC-CN3) Autumn School will be held again for the third time this year.

The school will be organised in a hybrid mode, providing facilities for both in-person and online attendees. Supported by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, IEEE Brain and other sponsors, this year’s Autumn School will run from the 25th October to 31st October, inclusively.
The topics covered in the seven-day ISRC-CN3 Autumn School include:

  • mathematical foundations in neuroscience
  • computational modelling of neural-glial systems, neuromodulators and cognition
  • neural data science
  • neurotechnology
  • neuromorphic computing and self-repaired intelligent machines
  • spiking neural networks and applications
  • cognitive robotics
  • ethics in neurotechnology and AI
  • entrepreneurship in neurotechnology and AI

This ISRC-CN3 Autumn School is unique not only in the range and types of topics covered but it will also be delivered in an integrated way, from pedagogical to advanced levels. The school is primarily targeted at PhD student level but we also welcome applications from advanced undergraduates, MSc students, postdoctoral researchers, academic faculty, medical and clinical researchers, and industrial researchers. Registration is made highly affordable, and bursaries may be available. Academic researchers at the ISRC and invited external speakers will contribute to the delivery of this seven-day School, which will consist of lectures, labs and group projects. Attendees will have the opportunity to present their group work on the final day, and awards will be given to the top presenters. Partial travel bursary will be provided to selected attendees.

Application for the Autumn School is now opened for both in-person and online attendees. The deadline for in-person application is 20th July 2023, 2023, and online application is 15th September, 2023.
