Event description

Description

Spiking neural networks (SNN) are a special class of artificial neural networks (ANN), in which the information is transmitted by means of pulses (or spikes) rather than by firing rates. As SNNs have shown to be excellent control systems for biological organisms, they have the potential to produce good control systems for autonomous robots. This workshop aims to bring together neuroscientists with roboticists and computational researchers developing biologically-inspired learning algorithms for scientific and industrial applications.

This joint workshop between HBP and the EU-funded initiatives in robotics, TETRAMAX1 and TERRINet2, is a great opportunity for neuroscientists and HBP to reach out and engage with the robotics and research infrastructure communities. At the same time, it brings together students and early-career researchers in both areas fostering the exchange between them by focusing on recent developments in efficient neural coding and spiking neurons' computation.

In order to enrich the discussions of SNN and its applications to computing, algorithmics and robotics, we will have a hands-on session on spiking neural networks on the Neurorobotics Platform (HBP SP10) and a guided visit to TUM Competence Center.

Participation fee: 250,00€
The fee does not include travel and accommodation. Fees will be collected after participants have been selected. Registration fee waivers were available for a limited number of participants per workshop. Participants could apply for fee waivers prior to the application deadline by sending an email to the organisers.

Please check with your supervisor how your institution can support you with regard to expenses for the attendance of the workshops. Further information about organizations offering travel support can also be found on https://www.humanbrainproject.eu/en/education/student-community/.
