About the Joint Symposium on Neural Computation

For the 26th year running, the JSNC has brought together students and faculty, and experimentalists and theorists, for a day of short talks and posters on topics relating to information processing in the nervous system.  The JSNC rotates annually between UCSD, Caltech, USC, UCLA, UC Irvine, and UC Riverside. This year it will be held on the USC campus in the Michelson Center for Convergent Biosciences.

Gert Cauwenberghs, UCSD    

"Memory-efficient neuromorphic learning and inference"

Mike Davies, Intel    

"Realizing the promise of spiking neuromorphic hardware"
