Spiking neural networks have been heralded as "the third generation" of neural networks quite a while ago already. Over the last decade, various spiking neural network models have been proposed, alongside a similar increasing interest in spiking models of computation in computational neuroscience. Still, state-of-the-art neural networks, like deep learning models, are based on traditional neural networks. In this special session, we want to bring together advances in spiking neural networks that challenge, or go beyond, the current state-of-the-art in neural networks.
In this special session, we are looking to bring together researchers interested in developing and applying learning algorithms for spiking neural networks that
· make use of learning,
· are supervised or unsupervised,
· aim to be biologically plausible,
· aim to be cognitively plausible or
· aim to be technically efficient.
Examples of such work could include probabilistic, efficient, logical and/or dynamical spiking computation.
SUBMISSION & IMPORTANT DATES
We kindly invite you to submit a paper to this special session. Each paper will undergo to a peer reviewing process for its acceptance. Paper submission should be done exclusively through the ESANN portal following the instructions provided in: (http://www.elen.ucl.ac.be/esann/).
