Latin American Workshop on Computational Neuroscience – 2021 Annual Meeting
December 8 @ 8:00 am - December 10 @ 5:00 pm
LAWCN 2021 is going to be in December, 8-10, 2021 and held in São Luís (Maranhão – Brazil), which is the capital and largest city of the Brazilian state of Maranhão, located in the Upaon-açu Island. Besides its beaches, São Luís has a beautiful colonial Historical Center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is a common stopover for visiting the stunning Lençóis Maranhenses.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is going to be a hybrid event, i.e. a face-to-face and online event. It is worthy emphasizing that all the current safety protocols to avoid COVID-19 are going to be followed at the event. An interactive and an interesting platform is going to be used for the the online participation and it will provide interaction between local and remote participants.
LAWCN has been gathering students and researchers from the fields of Computational Neuroscience, Artificial Intelligence, Neuroscience, and Neuroengineering in an enthusiastic atmosphere for sharing ideas, form networks, and foster collaboration For III LAWCN (2021) it is expected, as it happened the last editions, hundred of scientists from undergrads to experienced faculties coming from different countries to attend interesting talks from renowned keynote speakers. Moreover, this reunion of minds aids to share findings and experiences in the pursuit of cutting-edge knowledge on the brain.
The III LAWCN (2021) has the financial support from the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) and is going to provide travel aid for some participants (priority for women’s participation and regional diversity). Moreover, LAWCN’21 has also the financial support from Plexon with travel aid for authors of accepted papers.
The Organizing Committee is very proud to welcome researchers from Latin America and the whole world to the III LAWCN 2021. We wish, as in the last editions, an extraordinary exchange of ideas and experiences to advance interdisciplinary brain science.
