The IV Latin-American Workshop on Computational Neuroscience (LAWCN 2023) 
provides an international forum to bring students, academic researchers, and 
professionals from diverse backgrounds to present cutting-edge research on 
four major topics: Computational Neuroscience, Neuroscience, 
Neuroengineering, and Artificial Intelligence. Since the first edition, LAWCN 
has contributed to revealing knowledge about the brain in an enthusiastic 
atmosphere for sharing ideas, creating networks, and fostering collaboration 
among Latin countries and the world. The current edition is organized by the 
research group "Grupo de Investigación Tecnologías Emergentes Sostenibles e 
Inteligentes GITESI" from the Engineering Faculty of the Institution 
University of Envigado (IUE), in collaboration with the Colegio Colombiano de 
Neurociencias (COLNE), the most representative association of neuroscience 
researchers and students in Colombia. The workshop will take place in the 
city of Envigado (Antioquia - Colombia) from November 28 to 30, 2023. This is 
the first LAWCN edition outside of Brazil, expanding its presence to Latin 
America, seeking to enhance the collaboration network among the countries of 
our region but keeping the worldwide approach. Envigado is in the 
Metropolitan Area of the Aburrá Valley, close to Medellín, the second-largest 
city in Colombia, and the capital of the department of Antioquia. Envigado is 
known for maintaining the traditions of the Paisa Region and for its 
architecture. It also has one of the highest standards of living in Colombia. 
Envigado was recognized recently as one of the UNESCO Global Network of 
Learning Cities (UNESCO GNLC).

In keeping with the tradition of the previous edition of this meeting, the IV 
LAWCN has four main topics:

A- Computational Neuroscience
B- Neuroscience
C- Neuroengineering
D- Artificial intelligence and related topics.

See the full list of topics at https://www.lawcn.co/event/submissions.html. 
Prospective authors are invited to contribute to the conference by 
electronically submitting papers in English, Portuguese, or Spanish, 
according to the model found on the event website. Bests Papers will be 
published as a book volume in Springer-Verlag Communications in Computer and 
Information Science (CCIS, https://www.springer.com/series/7899; ISSN 
1865-0929) series. Also, authors can submit their papers for the Special 
Issue “Interdisciplinary Approaches for Human Cognition: Expanding 
Perspectives on the Mind” published by the International Journal in 
Psychological Research (IJPR; 
https://revistas.usb.edu.co/index.php/IJPR/index; ISSN 2011-7922); and the 
Special Issue “Engineering/computational methods applied to Psychology and 
neuroscience” published by the Ingenierías USBMED journal 
(https://revistas.usb.edu.co/index.php/IngUSBmed; ISSN 2027-5846). Papers 
will be evaluated based on the quality and significance of the theoretical 
and practical contributions. Authors of accepted papers must present their 
work in the workshop.
We have several travel and registration grants thanks to the International 
Brain Research Organization (IBRO) for international and national authors, 
prioritizing women and underrepresented regions. See the full information in 
the next link: https://lawcn.co/event/studentsGrants.html
