The EPFL-Latsis Symposium 2006 - Dynamical principles for neuroscience and intelligent biomimetic devices

NEWS

  • The EPFL-LATSIS Symposium 2006 has taken place from March 8 to 10 2006 on the campus of the EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland and was a great success. We thank all the Speakers and participants for their contributions.
  • Bibliographic information for the abstract booklets and the PDF version is available online.


The goal of the conference is to bring together scientists and engineers interested in understanding the dynamical properties of the nervous system, and in taking inspiration from those properties for the design of prosthetic and robotic devices. The conference is interdisciplinary in nature, and aims at bringing together researchers working on similar topics and phenomena but from different backgrounds. For more background on the aim of the conference see here.

The conference is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Latsis Foundation. The presentations will consists of a series of invited talks and of poster presentations. See the open call for abstracts for the poster sessions.
