Final CFP: Sussex Workshop on Synthetic Neuroethology 9-10 Sept.

Synthetic Neuroethology Workshop, 9-10 Sept. Final Call for Participation

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a synthetic
neuroethology themed workshop on Thursday-Friday 9-10
September 2010, at the University of Sussex.

Synthetic Neuroethology refers to the use of computational and robotic
models in the study of the neural mechanisms underlying the generation
of behaviour in animals. This one and a half day workshop brings
together researchers involved in this and related fields in order to
review progress and debate prospects.

There is still limited space for participants and we are still accepting
submissions for poster presentations (though this is not mandatory).

If you'd like to present a poster please email  ASAP.

The  program is outlined below. All the talks will be in Silverstone room 309.
