4th Internal EPFL Symposium on Modeling Sensorimotor Function


Event details

Date 05.07.2024
Hour 14:0017:00
Speaker TBD
Category Conferences - Seminars
Event Language English

At EPFL, different groups carry out experimental and theoretical research related to sensorimotor function. This symposium is an opportunity for EPFL labs studying the sensorimotor system to share their latest research, in an attempt to promote collaborations and stimulate new research ideas. We hope to organize multiple iterations in the future!
