The 2016 CapoCaccia Cognitive Neuromorphic Engineering Workshop

This is the tenth anniversary of the CapoCaccia Cognitive Neuromorphic Engineering Workshop series!

As in previous years, we will host a highly interactive and open discussion format in which power-point presentations and beamer-slides are banned. Open discussion and brain-storming sessions will be interleaved with hands-on projects and work-groups. We encourage all participants to bring to the workshop their SW/HW tools in order to propose hands-on projects.

The workshop is organized by the Institute of NeuroinformaticsUniversity of Zurich and ETH Zurich, and by iniForum

The workshop will be held at the Hotel dei Pini, in Alghero, Sardinia, Italy

Workshop Schedule

The CapoCaccia Workshop schedule is typically organized around a "problem of the day" where one or moresession chairs organizes and moderates a discussion session around a theme central to the topic of this workshop. 
These sessions  are not 45min one-way presentations. Slides and power-point presentations are banned. Rather these sessions  are frank and open discussions that sould involve all the participants, as much as possible. 
We will provide flip-charts and a digitizing tablet to draw on (and eventually project pictures and data if absolutely necessary). The schedule will evolve and change very dynamically, on a daily or even hourly basis.

We will update the schedule frequently (e.g. on an hourly basis) and populate it with events, as participants volunteer to discuss about the topics listed. Please remember that this is not a talk-shop where people simply present their latest results with power-point slides.

A typical day

Work-group projects and time-slots will be progressively defined and set-up during the meeting (see last year's schedule to see how dense it can get).

The daily breaks and social events include:
