26th Annual Joint Symposium on Neural Computation

In 1994, INC held the first Joint Symposium on Neural Computation with the California Institute of Technology. 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 and USC. The Symposium now provides members with the latest research efforts over the past year. This all day event is open to the INC members and the Industrial Affiliate Program members.
