25th Joint Symposium on Neural Computation

California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA

Saturday, May 5, 2018



In 1994, the Institute for Neural Computation at UCSD hosted the first Joint Symposium on Neural Computation with Caltech. This Symposium brought together students and faculty for a day of short presentations. Since then, this Symposium has rotated between San Diego, Caltech, UCI, UCLA, UCR and USC. Graduate students, postdocs, and faculty interested in computational neuroscience and machine learning are invited to attend.
