The LAWCN’21 aims to gather researchers with different backgrounds - medicine, psychology, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics and so on –  to  better understand the brain. Scientists from Latin-American and around the world are welcome to submit their results and ideas as papers to be presented at the conference. Its main areas are: i) Computational Neuroscience; ii) Neuroscience; iii) Neuroengineering; iv) Artificial Intelligence and related topics.

It is going to be a hybrid conference, i.e. face-to-face and online event, due to COVID-19 pandemic. Entertaining platforms are going to be used to promote interactive actions between local and remote participants.  It is expected, as in the previous editions, hundreds of scientists from undergrads to experienced faculties to attend interesting talks from renowned keynote speakers. We are proud to highlight that we have already secured the presence of six world-class scientists as keynote speakers: Peter Tass (Stanford University, USA), Alan Talevi (Universidad Nacional de La Plata, Argentina), André de Carvalho (University of São Paulo, Brazil), Kerstin Schimidt (Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil), Jose C. Principe (University of Florida, USA) and Angela Wyse (Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil). There are more under confirmation.

Participants are invited to submit papers on the topics of the event. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings (with ISBN). Abstracts are also accepted and will be published online in the III LAWCN Proceedings (with ISBN).

Moreover, as in last editions, selected papers of LAWCN 2021 will be published in the Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) proceedings series. Best papers (in English) that are related to the scope of the book series will be published as a chapter in Springer Nature (CCIS; ISSN 1865-0929). Papers will be evaluated based on their quality and significance by an international and experient program committee (
