The Quebec Neuro-AI research Center (UNIQUE) is pleased to announce that registration for the 5th edition of the Montreal AI and Neuroscience Conference, MAIN 2021 (Nov 29-30, 2021) is now open!

Every year MAIN brings together outstanding scientists and trainees whose research lies at the intersection between biological and artificial intelligence. Our aim is to showcase cutting edge research and contribute to building a more inclusive and diverse global Neuro-AI community! Last year we had over 2000 participants from over 60 countries. So come join the fun!

For MAIN 2021, we have put together a fantastic scientific program with more than 20 speakers and panelists (Nov 29-30, 2021 / virtual), which will be preceded by a 2-day educational session (Nov 25-26, 2021 / in person). Our four keynote speakers this year are James DiCarlo (MIT), Alison Gopnik (Berkeley), Surya Ganguli (Stanford), and Lucina Uddin (UCLA). A call for graphical abstract submissions is also currently open. Registration is free but mandatory. More information on the program and accessing the meeting online will be sent to all registered participants by email.
