CIMeC-KAIST symposium

CIMeC-KAIST joint workshop

April 15th, 2019
Versione stampabile

time: 9.00 a.m. 

venue: CIMeC Rovereto Palazzo Fedrigotti (Conference Room 1st floor)

Topic
This event represents the second joint workshop of these two research institutions, following the first edition held in Daejeon (Korea) during summer 2017. Under the framework of a bilateral agreement, researchers from CIMeC and KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) will join together to discuss recent advances in the field of neural basis of cognition and computational neuroscience.
