The 15th International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI 2022)

—Brain Science meets Artificial Intelligence

July 15-17, 2022, Padova-Italy & Brisbane-Australia

About the Conference

The International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI) series has established itself as the world’s premier research conference on Brain Informatics, which is an emerging interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research field that combines the efforts of Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, Machine Learning, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to explore the main problems that lie in the interplay between human brain studies and informatics research.

The 15th International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI'22) provides a premier international forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields for presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative and practical development experiences on brain Informatics research, brain-inspired technologies and brain/mental health applications.

800 yearsUniversity of Padua

The University of Padua is a premier Italian University, and it is the second oldest university in Italy and one of the earliest universities in the world. Founded in 1222, it hosted Galileo Galilei as a lecturer between 1592 and 1610.

In 2022, the University of Padua will celebrate its 800 years anniversary from the foundation. For this special scientific birthday, the University is encouraging the organization of important international events.

The organizers would like to take the opportunity to celebrate the University of Padua’s birthday by hosting the 15th International Conference on Brain Informatics for the year 2022 in Padua.
