Science and Technology for Brain-Inspired Intelligence Sub-Forum
Young Scholars are the future of academic research. Fudan-Guanghua International Forum for Young Scholars aims to create communication platforms for global young talented scholars of various research fields to discuss cutting-edge research spotlights, to resolve frontier academic problems and to enhance cooperation among distinct disciplines. The Forum also offers young scholars a taste of research environment and a package of know-how for research in China, specifically at Fudan University. It would eventually foster the “Extraordinary 2025” Elite Project to help attract from world-wide young researchers to work at Fudan University.
Fudan-Guanghua International Forum for Young Scholars composes of 1 main forum and 21 sub-forums, The “Science and Technology for Brain-Inspired Intelligence sub-forum” will be held by the Institute of Science and Technology for Brain-inspired Intelligence (ISTBI) during Dec. 27th to 28th.

The Institute of Science and Technology for Brain-inspired Intelligence (ISTBI), is an interdisciplinary research institution of Fudan University. It was launched in March 2015. The predecessor of ISTBI was the Centre for Computational Systems Biology, founded in 2008 and was one of the first international and interdisciplinary research centres in Fudan University.
ISTBI covers several research fields including applied mathematics, statistics, computer science, informatics and neuroscience. The research carried out in ISTBI is interdisciplinary per se, with computational neuroscience playing a pivotal role.
ISTBI aims to make significant contributions in the development of basic theories, core algorithms and key frameworks for artificial intelligence. It also has the aims of developing intelligent diagnosis systems for brain diseases, and establishing principles of cognitive neuroscience. Ultimately, ISTBI will contribute to the innovation and the development of an intelligence-oriented society.
