First European School on Neuroengineering "Massimo Grattarola"
Venice 16-20 June 2003

Telecom Italia Learning Services (TILS), and the University of Genoa (DIBE,=
 DIST, Bioengineering course) are currently organizing the first edition of=
 an European Summer School on Neuroengineering. The school will be entitled=
 to Massimo Grattarola. =

The  first edition , which will last for five days, will be held from June =
16 to June 20, 2003 at Telecom Italia's Future Center in Venice.
The School will cover the following main themes:

1.       Neural code and plasticity
o         Development and implementation of methods to identify, represent =
and analyze hierarchical and self-organizing systems
o         Cortical computational paradigms for perception and action
2.       Brain-like adaptive information processing systems
o         Development and implementation of methods to identify, represent =
and analyze hierarchical and self-organizing systems
o         Models of learning, representation and adaptability based on know=
ledge of the nervous system.
o         Exploration of the capabilities of natural neurobiological system=
s as flexible computational devices.
o         Use of information from nervous systems to engineer new control t=
echniques and new artificial systems.
o         Development of highly innovative Artificial Neural Networks capab=
le of reproducing the functioning of vertebrate nervous systems.
3.       Bio-artificial systems
o         Development of novel brain-computer interfaces
o         Development of new techniques for neuro-rehabilitation and neuro-=
o         Hybrid silicon/biological systems

In response to current reforms in training, at the Italian and European lev=
els, the Summer School on Neuroengineering is certified to grant credits.
These include:
ECM  (Educazione Continua in Medicina) credits recognized by the Italian Mi=
nistry of Health
ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits recognized by all European U=
