Underlying most of the IWANN calls for papers is the aim to reassume some of the motivations of the groundwork stages of biocybernetics and the later bionics formulations and to try to reconsider the present value of two basic questions. The?rstoneis:"Whatdoesneurosciencebringintocomputation(thenew bionics)?" That is to say, how can we seek inspiration in biology? Titles such as "computational intelligence", "arti?cial neural nets", "genetic algorithms", "evolutionary hardware", "evolutive architectures", "embryonics", "sensory n- romorphic systems", and "emotional robotics" are representatives of the present interest in "biological electronics" (bionics). Thesecondquestionis:"Whatcanreturncomputationtoneuroscience(the new neurocybernetics)?" That is to say, how can mathematics, electronics, c- puter science, and arti?cial intelligence help the neurobiologists to improve their experimental data modeling and to move a step forward towards the understa- ing of the nervous system? Relevant here are the general philosophy of the IWANN conferences, the sustained interdisciplinary approach, and the global strategy, again and again to bring together physiologists and computer experts to consider the common and pertinent questions and the shared methods to answer these questions.
