The 9th EAI International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (BICT 2015) is going to take place in New York, USA on 3-5 December, 2016.
The Conference aims to provide a world-leading and multidisciplinary venue for researchers and practitioners in diverse disciplines that seek the understanding of key principles, processes and mechanisms in biological systems and leverage those understandings to develop novel information and communications technologies (ICT). BICT 2015 targets two thrusts:
The Conference venue, Columbia University, will also host a lot of illuminating events, such as 9 keynote talks given by: Dmitri Chklovskii (Simons Foundation, USA), Adriana Compagnoni (Stevens Institute of Technology, USA), Simon Garnier (New Jersey Institute of Technology and Rutgers University, USA), Emanuela Merelli (University of Camerino, Italy), Bud Mishra (New York University, USA), Toshiyuki Nakagaki (Hokkaido University, Japan), Kazuhiro Oiwa (National Institute of Information and Communication Technology, Japan), Maurizio Porfiri (New York University, USA) and Yechiam Yemini (Columbia University, USA).
But this is not all! Also two tutorials will be given during the Conference: COSFIRE: A brain-inspired approach to visual pattern recognition and A discussion on Deep Learning, Convolutational Neural Networks and Sparse Coding and four workshops: The Second International Workshop on Brain-Inspired Information Communication Technologies (BIICT), The First International Workshop on Computational Models of the Visual Cortex: Hierarchies, Layers, Sparsity, Saliency and Attention, The International Workshop on Bioinformatics and The First International Workshop on Physarum Transport Networks.
Furthermore, another great event will be held at BICT 2015: the movie night. The Conference will screen the documentary movie “The Creeping Garden” at the Davis Auditorium at 6:00 pm on the 3rd of December.
