The 3rd Japan-EU Workshop on Neurorobotics is a whole day workshop on brain-inspired robotics. The studies of robotics and neuroscience are bridging the gap day by day. Robotics started being motivated by the sophisticated complexity and flexible intelligence of the human. Neuroscience in turn approaches the molecular structure and mathematical function of the neural system as the place where the intelligence originates. The recent advance of computing system allows for the first time to meet the two frontiers of scientific research. In this workshop researchers from the Neurorobotics pillar of the Human Brain Project will discuss on the current studies of the field with well-known researchers from Japan working in the same domain. Additional contributions from further researchers are more than welcome and highly appreciated.

The workshop is targeted at scientists on all levels interested in the intersection between neuroscience and robotics.

Speakers include: 

  • Yoshihiko Nakamura (University of Tokyo, Japan)
  • Satoshi Oota (RIKEN, Japan)
  • Florian Röhrbein (BCCN Munich, Technische Universität München, TUM)
  • Rüdiger Dillmann (Karlsruher Institut für Technologie, KIT)
  • Marc-Oliver Gewaltig (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, EPFL, Switzerland)
  • Poramate Manoonpong (University of Southern Denmark)
  • Aaron Sloman (University of Birmingham)

Registration is free but mandatory. Please send email to for all details. Registration Deadline: May 31, 2017.
