The Capo Caccia Workshops toward Cognitive Neuromorphic Engineering
Organised by the Institute of Neuroinformatics (INI), ETH / UZH, Zurich, in collaboration with the Institute of Neuromorphic Engineering (INE), the series of "Capo Caccia Workshops toward Cognitive Neuromorphic Engineering" represents a new initiative started in 2007 to promote research and education in Neuromorphic Engineering.
The workshop takes place Sardinia, Italy at the Hotel Capocaccia, close to the town of Alghero, and is complementary to the extremely successful Telluride Neuromorphic Engineering Workshop, organized yearly in the US.
Both series of workshops are organized in unison, in a way to optimize continuity and impact. They both combine lectures on state-of-the-art results achieved in the domain of neuromorphic engineering, with tutorials and courses on interdisciplinary topics ranging from basic visual neuroscience to VLSI layout design techniques.
The lectures and discussions are complemented by hands-on activities in which both young student and senior academic staff work together on practical projects such as BMI interfaces, robot locomotion, learning and classification with mixed SW and VLSI networks of spiking neurons, etc.
