Call For Papers

Join us for the annual "Barcelona Cognition, Brain and Technology summer school - BCBT" to be held 13-16 September 2021
This year, given the COVID-19 pandemic, the school will have a reduced format and will be held online.

BCBT has run with great success for the last 13th years thanks to an excellent line-up of outstanding speakers, including Nobel Laureate winner Edvard Moser and luminaries in the fields of neurosciences, psychology, biology, robotics, and AI, such as M. Arbib, S. Grilner, G. Rizzolatti, among many.
Previous BCBT lectures and the BCBT podcast interviews with many of the BCBT speakers are available online at and

BCBT caters to students and researchers involved in projects that are in the ambit of "BIO-ICT convergence," "Brain Inspired ICT," "Cognitive systems-robotics," "Cognitive and neural systems," "Foundations of social cognition." The BCBT school promotes a shared systems-level understanding of the functional architecture of the brain and its possible emulation in artificial systems.

This year BCBT offers free registrations for students and researchers to attend online presentations and discussion sessions as they are interested. Slots for practical workshops will be organized depending on the number of attendees.
The atmosphere of the BCBT summer school is informal to stimulate in-depth discussion. There are 2 or 3 presentations in the morning, with the afternoons reserved for tutorials and projects for student participants and senior scientists with road-mapping workshops and further discussion.

The 2021 edition is a 1-week event, and in the first half, we will be addressing System-level understanding of the brain and its emulation in advanced technology. In the 2nd half, we will focus on Brain Function and Behavior in health and disease.
