International Symposium on Artificial Intelligence and Brain Science 2022
|Date||July 4 (Mon) to 5 (Tue), 9:00-18:00|
|Venue||Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University|
|Sponsor||Artificial Intelligence and Brain Science Project|
|Organizers||Kenji Doya（Neural Computation Unit, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University）
Masashi Sugiyama（RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project; International Research Center for Neurointelligence, The University of Tokyo）
Karl Friston（University College London）
Ryota Kanai (ARAYA)

|Purpose of the symposium||Recent advances in “deep learning” realized artificial intelligence (AI) that surpasses humans in certain tasks like visual object recognition and game playing. Today’s AI, however, still lacks the versatility and flexibility of human intelligence, which motivates AI researchers to learn brain’s working principles. Neuroscientists also need helps of AI in making sense of massive data from sequencing, imaging, and so forth. The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers advancing the forefront of AI and neuroscience to identify next targets in creating brain-like intelligence and further advancing neuroscience.|

Current status and future direction of evoked potential/event-related potential research
|Date||July 2(Sat) ,18: 30-21: 00|
|Venue||Online / Zoom|
|Sponsor||Shugo Suwazono, Okinawa hospital|
|Organizers||Shugo Suwazono（Center for Clinical Neuroscience, National Hospital Organization Okinawa National Hospital）
Jun'ichi Katayama（Department of Psychological Science, Kwansei Gakuin University）
|Speakers||Kosuke Itoh（Brain Research Institute, University of Niigata）
Motohiro Kimura（Department of Information Technology and Human Factors, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST)）
Chikara Ishii（Department of Psychological Science, Kwansei Gakuin University）
Shingo Tokimoto（Department of English Language Studies, Mejiro University）
Shugo Suwazono（Center for Clinical Neuroscience, National Hospital Organization Okinawa National Hospital）
|Purpose of the symposium||Event-related potential or evoked potential (EP/ERP) research have long history and keeps actively developing to seek neural basis of brain functions.
Concurrently with the NEURO2022 congress in Okinawa, we, several EP/ERP researchers from the basic science to the clinical area, will present the hottest research results and discuss about those topics and their future directions. Through those discussions, we hope not only the symposiasts but also attendees will be inspired and get some ideas for the future research.
Mathematical open problems in neuroscience
|Date||July 3, 2022 from 17:00 ~
July 4, 2022 from 9:00 ~
July 6, 2022 from 9:00 - 12:00
|Venue||DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Naha Shuri Castle|
|Sponsor||Moonshot R&D Program Goal 1 Realization of a society in which human beings can be free from limitations of body, brain, space, and time by 2050. "Liberation from Biological Limitations via Physical, Cognitive and Perceptual Augmentation"|
|Organizers||Shuntaro Sasai (Araya Inc.)
Kazuaki Tanaka（Waseda University）
|Speakers||Shuntaro Sasai（Araya Inc.）|
|Purpose of the symposium||The goal of this workshop is to encourage collaboration with mathematical sciences to develop neuroscience and to build new data analysis methods and computational models. Experimental methods in neuroscience have made remarkable progress in recent years, and the resulting data are becoming increasingly high-dimensional and multi-domain. These data characteristics are expected to provide not only a deeper understanding of the information structure of the nervous system, but also to revolutionize.
In order to facilitate this, the aim of this workshop is to share issues and data in neuroscience fields with experts in the mathematical sciences and to create a forum for collaboration.

Flagship projects in neurochemistry
|Date||July 8 (Fri), 15: 00-18: 30|
|Venue||Mita Campus, Keio University|
|Sponsor||Japanese Society for Neurochemistry|
|Organizers||Akiko HAYASHI-TAKAGI（RIKEN CBS）
Kenji TANAKA（Keio University）
|Speakers||Hideyuki Okano（Keio University）
Schuichi Koizumi（Yamanashi University）
Rieko Muramatsu（National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry）
Kenji Tanaka（Keio University）
Tadashi Isa（Kyoto University）
|Purpose of the symposium||To accelerate understanding of brain diseases and the development of new treatments, the Japanese Society for Neurochemistry (JSN) has identified flagship projects which target glia, iPSC, and disease reverse translational researches. In this satellite symposium, we will introduce the JSN flagship projects and share the cross-disciplinary efforts we have made. We will also share technical limitations which we should overcome in the future. Discussions to lead interdisciplinary brain sciences in our country will include perspectives from the administration.|

|Purpose of the symposium||This symposium is jointly organized by the Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas "Multiscale Brain" (Akiko Hayashi, RIKEN) and Molecular Cellular Cognition Society (MCCS)-Asia (MCCS-Asia) (Satoshi Kida, President; the University of Tokyo). In this symposium, we will discuss the elucidation of the mechanisms of cognitive functions, particularly learning and memory, as well as the understanding of psychiatric disorders from the viewpoint of cognitive dysfunction and the mechanisms of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, depression, and PTSD, as the symposium theme. MCCS-Asia is the Asian branch of MCCS, established in 2000, and holds an international symposium every two years. In Japan, it has been held four times as a satellite of the Japan Neuroscience Society.|
