"Dentritic Computations" is a meeting organized by Alain Destexhe and Idan Segev.
It is expected to be a "brainstorm" meeting on the type of computations performed by dendrites, compared to single-compartment neurons.
The question is to discuss what type of dendritic computation cannot be reproduced by a single-compartment neuron.
