One week left to submit abstracts for the 5th International Convention on
the Mathematics of Neuroscience and AI, to be held in Rome 28th-31st May

We hope that you come and join us! Thank you to all the people that have
submitted already—the quality so far has been fantastic.

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:
