The Second International Conference on Biologically Inspired Cognitive
Architectures (BICA) will be held in Arlington, VA, November 5-6, 2011.    (01)

The deadline for submitting a 6-page paper is April 21.    (02)

The challenge of creating a real-life computational equivalent of
the human mind calls for joint efforts to better understand at a
computational level how natural intelligent systems develop their
cognitive and learning functions.  In recent years, biologically
inspired cognitive architectures (BICA) have emerged as a powerful new
approach toward gaining this kind of understanding (here "biologically
inspired" is understood broadly as "brain-mind inspired").  Still,
despite impressive successes and growing interest in BICA, wide gaps
separate different approaches from each other and from solutions found
in biology, preventing us from solving the challenge.    (04)

The focus of this year's BICA conference is on the integration of
research in computational neuroscience, cognitive modeling, and
human-level artificial intelligence, with a particular spotlight on
emergent human-like learners:  artifacts that can learn like humans,
from humans and for human needs.    (05)
