2nd European Workshop on Neuromorphic
3-5 September 1999.
University of Stirling, Stirling,
We are grateful to the Gatsby Charitable Foundation for their generous support of this workshop.
The meeting builds on the success of the First European Workshop on Neuromorphic Systems (EWNS1), held in Stirling in August 1997. It is being held jointly by the Department of Computer Science at the University of Stirling, and the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. The location is one of the most beautiful campuses in Europe, and is centrally located in Scotland. It is easily reached by plane (to Glasgow or Edinburgh, both 1 hour away) train, bus, or car.
The purpose of this meeting is to bring together active researchers and research students from different areas of this interdisciplinary field. We invite contributions both from engineers who want to implement systems based on neurobiology, and neurobiologists who want to produce engineering implementations of systems, as well as from modellers and theoreticians from all the relevant disciplines.
The meeting is intended both for the reporting of results, and for discussion about the way forward in neuromorphic systems:
We are producing a special issue of the International Journal of Neural Systems instead of a proceedings. Instructions for authors are now available.
We have now sent the papers (camera-ready) off to Singapore, to World Scientific who are the publishers of IJNS. I am led to understand that the papers will be published as Volume 9 No 5 (Oct 1999). The expected publication date is 20 December. All delegates will be sent a copy of the publication as soon as I receive them (which is to say, early in Jan 2000).

Submission Deadline was April 6th
Notification of Acceptances have now been sent out.
And the programme is out as well
We'd like author's postcript camera-ready copy by 15 October!
Publication date (IJNS 9, 5) is 20 Dec 1999
A variety of different animal systems are currently being investigated using this methodology. This session aims to present recent work and to reflect on the promises and challenges facing this field.
Papers for this session should be submitted under the same procedure
as other papers for EWNS and marked "Biorobotics". If you would like to
contribute to a robot demo/video session please contact Barbara
Webb at email@example.com
The meeting was a single-track meeting so that all
attendees could go to all the meetings. Accepted papers were be presented
(we plan for 20 minutes + time for discussion).
