SIXTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COGNITIVE AND NEURAL SYSTEMS
Tutorials: May 29, 2002
Meeting: May 30 - June 1, 2002

Boston University
http://www.cns.bu.edu/meetings/

This interdisciplinary conference focuses on two fundamental questions:
How Does the Brain Control Behavior?
How Can Technology Emulate Biological Intelligence?

A single oral or poster session enables all presented work to be
highly visible.

Contributed talks will be presented on each of the three conference days.

Three-hour poster sessions with no conflicting events will be held
on two of the conference days. All posters will be up all day, and
can also be viewed during breaks in the talk schedule.
