    FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COGNITIVE AND NEURAL SYSTEMS
    Tutorials: May 30, 2001
    Meeting: May 31 - June 2, 2001

    Boston University
    http://www.cns.bu.edu/meetings/

    This interdisciplinary conference focuses on two fundamental questions:
    How Does the Brain Control Behavior?
    How Can Technology Emulate Biological Intelligence?

    A single oral or poster session enables all presented work to be
    highly visible.

    Contributed talks will be presented on each of the three conference days.

    Three-hour poster sessions with no conflicting events will be held on
    two of the conference days. All posters will be up all day, and can also
    be viewed during breaks in the talk schedule.
