NEAT 2024

Home » NEAT 2024

Registration will open soon. Remember that each lab that wants to join has to have their PI present.

Welcome to NEAT – Neuro-AI-Talks in Osnabrück – a EU-based event for research groups working at the intersection of neuroscience and artificial intelligence. The focus of NEAT is to foster connections and discussions among attendees, sharing new ideas, projects, and directions, as well as exploring potential collaborations. The event is aiming for a rather small group of attendees (approximately 80 people) to encourage an open and relaxed exchange. Each research group is welcome to join with 3-4 members and their PI. We look forward to welcoming you to Osnabrück in September.
