13th Neural Computation and Psychology Workshop

NCPW stands for Neural Computation and Psychology Workshop. The workshop aims at bringing together researchers to discuss emergent models that address topics of human cognition. These models are mostly, but not exclusively, of the connectionist/neural network kind and are applied to cognitive processes. The cognitive aspects that are addressed range from developing models that bridge the gap between brain and behaviour to developing robots that are able to navigate in unknown territory without external feedback. NCPW sets the researcher and their field at its centre by providing only plenary talks, supporting student submissions, and allowing lots of time for informal discussions. NCPW produces a proceedings book that for many younger scientists forms an important milestone in their work. Importantly, it is one of the few books that collate papers from researchers with as varied a background as psychology, computer science, robotics, mathematics, and cognitive scientists.

Event dates: 12 - 14 July, 2012
