BICS 2010 Call for Workshops and Tutorials


The Organizing Committee for the 2009 Brain Inspired Cognitive Systems (BICS 2009) requests proposals for a full or half day workshop or tutorial, to be held on Tuesday, July 13, 2010 at the Technical University of Madrid, Madrid, Spain.

This day of workshops and tutorials will precede the main conference BICS, which takes place from the Wednesday July 14, 2010 to Friday July 16, 2010.

The workshops and tutorials have consistently provided high-quality, topically-focused forums for researchers at the forefront of basic and applied research in brain inspired cognitive systems

Workshops should be focused on interactions of participants to exchange new ideas and explore new directions in research.

Tutorials should provide self-contained descriptions of established research topics.


The primary criteria for selection are anticipated level of interest, impact, novelty or creativity, and technical background of presenters.

We request that workshop and tutorial organizers initially email a brief, single-paragraph description of the proposed topic and a list of organizers by January 31, 2010 to the BICS Program manager at

A template for the final proposal of approximately 3 pages will be mailed to all interested parties.

The full proposal submission should include a title, an abstract and a description of the proposed content, a tentative schedule, and the expected requirements for space and equipment.

Full proposals for review will be due by January 31, 2010. All decisions will be made by February 15, 2010.
