7TH CAMBRIDGE NEUROSCIENCE SYMPOSIUM ‘ARTIFICIAL AND BIOLOGICAL COGNITION’

Venue: The West Road Concert Hall, University of Cambridge, 11 West Rd, CB3 9DP

#ABC2019 comprises seven sessions including ‘Reinforcement Learning’, ‘Navigation’, ‘Robotics’, ‘Communication’, ‘Vision’ ‘Mental Health’ and ‘Neuroethics of AI’.

The programme features many distinguished national and international speakers. This is generally a very popular meeting, which attracts an international audience of up to 500 delegates.

The Alan Hodgkin and Andrew Huxley plenary lectures are a major feature within the programme. We are delighted to welcome Demis Hassabis and Catherine Dulac to Cambridge.

In addition to all of the refreshment breaks there are additional fun opportunities to network at a drinks reception, followed by a Gala dinner, at Trinity College in the evening on September 12th 2019; and a drinks reception following the close of the symposium on September 13th.

#Marr2019: In addition, we are hosting a special satellite meeting to celebrate David Marr, one of the founding fathers of computational neuroscience, on the 50th anniversary of his thesis. Come join us at St John’s College on Wednesday 11th September 2019 for ‘David Marr, 50 years on’. We will be raising a glass to David Marr on the stunning rooftop terrace of Newnham College following the meeting.

WHY ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)? AND WHAT DOES CAMBRIDGE HAVE TO OFFER?

Our researchers in a multitude of different disciplines are creating innovative applications of AI in diverse areas. Cambridge is unique in that brings mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers together, alongside basic, translational and clinical scientists. Cambridge philosophers and humanists are asking fundamental questions about the ethics, trust and humanity of AI system design. We are well placed both geographically and academically to lead the revolution that is happening in this exciting field, specifically in relation to neuroscience.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Academics at all levels of their career working across neuroscience, engineering, mathematics and computer science. We particularly encourage early career researchers to attend and present their work at this unique event. To this end, we are offering heavily subsidised all-inclusive registration fees.

Industry professionals working across the neuroscience-technology-biomedical spectrum. Attending ABC2019 will provide the perfect opportunity for you to promote your organisation to a passionate audience of scientists across a wide range of disciplines. Furthermore, it will provide excellent networking opportunities allowing you to establish relationships with partners, potential employees and customers.

In addition, we are hosting a special satellite meeting to celebrate David Marr, one of the founding fathers of computational neuroscience, on the 50th anniversary of his thesis.
