NEUROCHEM Workshop on Biologically Inspired Computation for Chemical Sensing: Barcelona, Spain, March 9-11, 2011

Barcelona, Spain,  March 9-11, 2011

Organized by the University of Barcelona (UB)  and the Institute for BioEngineering of Catalonia (IBEC).

The main goal of this workshop is to raise awareness of the ability of bioinspired signal processing methods to target real-world problems.

The focus of the workshop will be on signal processing techniques inspired on the olfactory system and on the computational models of the biological olfactory pathway.

Important dates:

Abstract submission deadline: January 31, 2011

Notification of acceptance: Febrary 28, 2011
