Osnabrueck Computational Cognition Alliance Meeting (OCCAM 2012) on "The Brain as an Information Processing System"
OCCAM 201252.2799112 8.0471788
Registration is open until April 9th, 2012 (first come first served). The registration fee is 100,- Euros. This fee covers the workshop attendance incl. coffee, buffet on the first day, and the conference dinner.
The goal of the OCCAM workshop series is to foster our understanding of mechanisms and principles of information processing in self-organized hierarchical and recurrent systems. Our knowledge of such systems is still very limited despite being a focus of research for many years. The OCCAM workshop series aims at understanding the principles of information processing with a particular focus on 3 major topics:
1. Neural coding and representation in hierarchical systems
2. Self-organisation in dynamic systems
3. Mechanisms for probabilistic inference
The OCCAM 2012 theme is: "The Brain as an Information Processing System"
