The IV Latin-American Workshop on Computational Neuroscience (LAWCN 2023) provides an international forum to bring students, academic researchers, and professionals from diverse backgrounds to present cutting-edge research on four major topics: Computational Neuroscience, Neuroscience, Neuroengineering, and Artificial Intelligence. Since the first edition, LAWCN has contributed to revealing knowledge about the brain in an enthusiastic atmosphere for sharing ideas, creating networks, and fostering collaboration among Latin countries and the world. The current edition is organized by the research group "Grupo de Investigación Tecnologías Emergentes Sostenibles e Inteligentes GITESI" from the Engineering Faculty of the Institution University of Envigado (IUE), in collaboration with the Colegio Colombiano de Neurociencias (COLNE), the most representative association of neuroscience researchers and students in Colombia. The workshop will take place in the city of Envigado (Antioquia - Colombia) from November 28 to 30, 2023. This is the first LAWCN edition outside of Brazil, expanding its presence to Latin America, seeking to enhance the collaboration network among the countries of our region but keeping the worldwide approach. Envigado is in the Metropolitan Area of the Aburrá Valley, close to Medellín, the second-largest city in Colombia, and the capital of the department of Antioquia. Envigado is known for maintaining the traditions of the Paisa Region and for its architecture. It also has one of the highest standards of living in Colombia. Envigado was recognized recently as one of the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities (UNESCO GNLC).

In keeping with the tradition of the previous edition of this meeting, the IV LAWCN has four main topics:

A- Computational Neuroscience
B- Neuroscience
C- Neuroengineering
D- Artificial intelligence and related topics.

See the full list of topics at Prospective authors are invited to contribute to the conference by electronically submitting papers in English, Portuguese, or Spanish, according to the model found on the event website. Bests Papers will be published as a book volume in Springer-Verlag Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS,; ISSN 1865-0929) series. Also, authors can submit their papers for the Special Issue “Interdisciplinary Approaches for Human Cognition: Expanding Perspectives on the Mind” published by the International Journal in Psychological Research (IJPR;; ISSN 2011-7922); and the Special Issue “Engineering/computational methods applied to Psychology and neuroscience” published by the Ingenierías USBMED journal (; ISSN 2027-5846). Papers will be evaluated based on the quality and significance of the theoretical and practical contributions. Authors of accepted papers must present their work in the workshop.
We have several travel and registration grants thanks to the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) for international and national authors, prioritizing women and underrepresented regions. See the full information in the next link:

The Workshop will consist mainly of the following activities.
• Presentation of up to nine (9) key researchers of international and national renown.
• Round table to widely discuss gender diversity in Neuroscience.
• Oral presentations of accepted papers by their authors.
• Poster session.
• Launch of the Brain-Computer Interface LATAM network.
