Call For Papers
The ACAIN 2020  is aimed at AI experts, neuroscientists and both at AI experts with interests in Neuroscience and at neuroscientists with an interest in AI. ACAIN 2020 will be a special opportunity to hear about cutting-edge research by leading scientists in AI and Neuroscience.

The two days of keynote talks and oral presentations (the ACAIN Symposium, 1-2 October,2020) will be preceded by lectures of leading scientists (the ACAIN Course, 28-30 September,2020) for students and newcomers to this interdisciplinary field.

Bringing together AI and neuroscience promises to yield benefits for both fields. The future impact and progress in both AI and Neuroscience will strongly depend on a more efficient synergy and cooperation between the two research communities. These are the goals of the International Course and Symposium – ACAIN 2020, which is aimed both  at AI experts with interests in Neuroscience and at neuroscientists with an interest in AI. ACAIN 2020 will be a special opportunity to hear about cutting-edge research by leading scientists in both fields. The two days of keynote talks and oral presentations (the Symposium) will be preceded by two days of lectures  (the Course) for students and newcomers to this interdisciplinary field. Moreover, ICAN 2020 accepts rigorous research that promotes and fosters multidisciplinary interactions between artificial intelligence and neuroscience.

Inside the Wordsworth Hotel & SPA – Grasmere, Lake District, England, the lecture rooms and around the fascinating atmosphere of Grasmere, Lake District – England – Great Britain  the world’s leading scientists and industry experts discuss scientific challenges with a highly selected number of participants in a unique setting, nestled within the most idyllic landscapes of England, in the outskirts of Lake District, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

For one intense week you will work alongside faculty that are undisputed leaders in their own field: the result is a profound experience that fosters professional and personal development.

In a proven, unique format you will be exposed to a high-impact learning experience, taking you outside the comfort zone of your own technical expertise, that will empower you with new analytical and strategic skills across areas of Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience.

The first Advanced Course and Symposium on Artificial Intelligence  & Neuroscience (ACAIN) is a full-immersion five-day residential Course at the Wordsworth Hotel & SPA (Grasmere, Cumbria,  Lake District – England) on cutting-edge advances in Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience with lectures delivered by world-renowned experts. The Course provides a stimulating environment for academics, early career researches, Post-Docs, PhD students and industry leaders. Participants will also have the chance to present their results with oral talks or posters, and to interact with their peers, in a friendly and constructive environment.

You will gain a heightened awareness for fields of Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience relevant for your activity and, perhaps most important, you will gain a place within an elite global network of Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience experts.

The Advanced Course is not a summer school suited only for younger scholars. Rather, a significant proportion of seasoned investigators are regularly present among the attendees, often senior faculty at their own institutions. The balanced audience that we strive to maintain in each Advanced Course greatly contributes to the development of intense cross-disciplinary debates among faculty and participants that typically address the most advanced and emerging areas of each topic.

Each faculty member presents lectures and discusses with the participants for one entire day. Such long interaction together with the small, exclusive Course size provides the uncommon opportunity to fully explore the expertise of each faculty, often through one-to-one mentoring. This is unparalleled and priceless.

The Course will involve a total of 36-40 hours of lectures, according to the academic system the final achievement will be equivalent to 8 ECTS points for the PhD Students and the Master Students attending the Course.

The Wordsworth Hotel & SPA – Grasmere provides the perfect setting to a relaxed yet intense learning atmosphere, with the stunning backdrop of the Lake District landscapes. World-class beers and traditional foods will make the Advanced Course on Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience the experience of a lifetime!
