On 11-13 December 2019, the HBP Education Programme will organise a workshop on cognitive systems for non-specialists at the University of Glasgow under the title “Modern trends in cognitive architectures and systems: From theory to implementation in natural and artificial agents”.

Participation in the event is open to the entire scientific community, but especially targets early-career researchers (advanced Master’s students, PhD students and early postdocs).

Please find some general information about the workshop and the HBP Curriculum below and in the attached PDF file.

The HBP Curriculum on Interdisciplinary Brain Science <https://www.humanbrainproject.eu/en/education/participatecollaborate/curriculum/> combines web-based distance learning courses and complementary face-to-face workshops. It provides basic lessons in the Human Brain Project (HBP) core fields neuroscience, medicine and ICT for early-career researchers outside their area of specialisation, as well as courses on the subjects of ethics and intellectual property rights, translation and exploitation of research.

3rd HBP Curriculum Workshop Series - 

11-13 December 2019, Glasgow, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 31 October 2019


In order to understand and implement cognitive systems, recent developments in neuroscience need to be brought together with computational techniques that integrate models and simulations. 

The goal of this workshop is to provide an overview of the latest developments in the understanding of how the brain works, computes and generates behaviour.


Application information & Abstract submission

Application is open to the entire student community and early-career researchers, regardless of whether they are affiliated with the Human Brain Project or not. It is aimed to offer equal opportunities for all early-career researchers regardless of gender, age, origin, etc.


Share your research with your peers!
