The annual international summer school Barcelona Cognition Brain and Technology promotes a shared systems-level understanding of the functional architecture of the brain and its possible emulation in artificial systems. This school, organized by the SPECS-lab IBEC since 2008, addresses students and scientists involved in research at the interface between brains and technology such as in the ambit of “Bio-ICT convergence” “Brain Inspired ICT” and “cognitive systems and robotics.”

Students will attend lectures from prominent scientists in the field of brain research, cognitive science, and neuroscience, as well as AI and related fields. Students will also participate in tutorials and work on projects that will be presented at the end of the summer school.
