We are delighted to announce our call for abstracts for the 5th
International Convention on the Mathematics of Neuroscience and AI, to be
held in Rome 28-31st May 2024.

In this high-profile convention we examine computational accounts of the
brain and mind from the perspectives of biocomputation, neural theory, and
cognitive science. We then take findings and theory back into the creation
of robust, generalizable, and scalable AI:
