From the pioneering studies of the '70s in the last century, computation has now become a mature science with solid mathematical foundations, challenging scientific problems, and virtually unlimited technological fallouts.
The workshop will bring together a number of people who have been working together with Tomaso Poggio on different aspects of computation, giving substantial contributions in one or more areas and providing insights for present and future research directions.
We are convinced that "a journey through computation" will be a unique opportunity to hear and discuss the latest advances in different areas including computation in the fly, in single neurons, in biological and computer vision systems, in learning theory, and in neuroscience.
