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 2024. 

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:
