24th Joint Symposium on Neural Computation

Institute for Neural Computation, UCSD, La Jolla, CA

May 20, 2017
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.
