In this workshop we will host a highly interactive and open discussion forum 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. Note that room reservations for workshop participants should only be made via the workshop registration page in order to use the "full-board" option (room + breakfast + lunch + dinner) with discounted prices.

Workshop Schedule

The CapoCaccia Workshop  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  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.
