Building Bodies for Brains & Brains for Bodies

This extraordinary event with world-famous speakers including Masayuki Inaba, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Minoru Asada and Norman Packard will take place in Geneva on June 16th, 2017.

It is a one-day symposium in the field of neurorobotics with the goal of improving robot behavior by exploiting ideas from neuroscience and investigating brain function using real physical robots or simulations thereof. Contributions to this workshop will focus on (but are not limited to) the relation between neural systems – artificial or biological – and soft-material robotic platforms, in particular the “control” of such systems by capitalizing on their intrinsic dynamical characteristics like stiffness, viscosity and compliance.


The symposium will take place at the coordination site of the Human Brain Project in Geneva at Campus Biotech, Chemin des Mines 9, see also
