Dr George Tsihrintzis, Co-Editor in Chief for Engineering at SpringerPlus
I received a Diploma of Electrical Engineer from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece (with honors) and my M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
I am currently a Professor in the Department of Informatics at The University of Piraeus, Greece and also the Director of the Graduate Program of Study in “Advanced Computing and Informatics Systems” within this Department. Students are our future; I have supervised 10 doctoral students who have received their doctoral degrees and am currently supervising an additional 7 students.
My current research interests include Pattern Recognition, Decision Theory, and Statistical Signal Processing and their applications in Multimedia Interactive Services,
Until the end of 2015 Springer is offering a 50% discount on Open Access charges to the Journal of Mathematical Neuroscience.
Congratulations to Nancy Kopell and Bard Ermentrout for their recent Mathematical Neuroscience Prizes from Israel Brain Technologies. Nancy has been recognised for her work in mathematical analysis of nervous system functions, and our editorial board member Bard for his classic work in mathematical biology.

Congratulations to our co-editor in chief, Professor Olivier Faugeras, for the award of the Okawa foundation prize for his pioneering contributions to computer vision and computational neuroscience. Olivier is currently in Tokyo to receive this well deserved award.
The Neuroscience Institute at Georgia State University (GSU) invites applications for a tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor pending budgetary approval. The ideal candidate will establish a research program that synergizes with existing key strengths in the Neuroscience Institute in behavioral neuroscience, computational neuroscience, neuroendocrinology, and neuroplasticity. Preference will be given to researchers with expertise and a publication record using state-of-the art methodologies. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. or M.D. in a discipline related to neuroscience and should demonstrate the ability to establish a vigorous, externally funded research program and to mentor Ph.D. graduate students. Excellence in teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels is also expected. Candidates should have an outstanding record of accomplishment and a strong/...
1st International Conference on Mathematical Neuroscience (ICMNS)
June 8 – 10, 2015
Antibes – Juan les Pins, France
Submission deadline: February 2, 2015 Notification of acceptance: February 27, 2015
Oral presentations will be selected from the submission of one-page abstracts. Poster presentations will be selected from the submissions of a half a page abstracts. Accepted oral contributions will be considered for possible publication in a special issue of the Journal of Mathematical Neuroscience.
See the page https://icmns2015.inria.fr/accepted-papers/ for LaTeX and Word templates and how to submit.
The First International Conference on Mathematical NeuroScience (ICMNS) will be held at the Congress Center in Juan-les-Pins, on the French Riviera on June 8-10, 2015.
The goal of this conference is to bring together theoretical neuroscientists and mathematicians interested in using mathematical concepts and methods for solving problems posed by neuroscience.
It is motivated by the idea that many outstanding questions concerning the functioning/dysfunctioning of brains at multiple spatial and temporal scales require the use of a wide range of mathematical tools, including, but not restricted to, functional analysis, dynamical systems theory, bifurcation theory, probability and statistics, stochastic calculus, geometry, information theory, and numerical analysis. The conference is also aimed to illustrate that neuroscience is
In Montmartre, Paris honors an evolutionist!
The team of associate editors is a critical piece of EEO‘s strategy in a new phase of its existence. After an extended launch and move to open access, we now promote sustainability and consolidate our reputation for excellence and creativity in explaining evolutionary biology and its consequences to a general audience.
EEO‘s publication model in its initial stages relied heavily on Niles Eldredge’s network of connections. Issues were assembled by a guest editor or editors, who would solicit articles on a particular topic in his or her area or areas of expertise. As a result, those in the community of evolutionists outside of those immediately connected with Niles and his colleagues have not come to see EEO as an outlet for their work, and...
Neural Fields: Theory and Applications
Written by leading scientists in the field
Includes contributions from two of the founding-fathers of neural field theory: Shun-ichi Amari and Jack Cowan
The first comprehensive collection of results in the research area of neural field theory
The blog posts for this month’s carnival address fundamental problems in evoluitionary biology in novel and controversial contexts.
Mechanisms of evolution
Conduct of science and its representation in the media
Evolution and human races. A recent book by Nicholas Wade focuses controversy on the issue of whether human beings can be organized into races: Wade argues that they can be, and that people in the same race share behavior and other capacities because they share a common racial inheritance. Bradly Alicea challenges Wade by discussing the nature and interpretation of genetic variation and population differentiation in our species. Jennifer Raff, a postdoc at UT Austin with graduate level training both anthropology and genetics, challenges readers to identify...
Now make it.
Allow for doubts.
Challenge your doubts.
Test it again.
Opt for the best.
Nothing is impossible.

Circle of magic:
by Sandi Ljubic, JoIS Board Member
We are pleased to announce that three renowned scientists in the field of Mathematical Neuroscience have accepted to join the Editorial Board of the JMN: Sue Ann Campbell from the University of Waterloo, Canada, Wilhelm Stannat from the Technische Universität, Berlin, Germany, and Stephan A Van Gils from the Universiteit Twente, Netherlands. We thank the four members of the Editorial Board, Romain Brette, Wulfram Gerstner, Vincent Hakim, and Hinke Osinga, who decided to step down from the Board, for their efforts in promoting the Journal.
International Workshop on Neurodynamics
, Castro-Urdiales, Spain, July 14 – 17, 2014.
The aim of this workshop is to present an overview of successful achievements in this rapidly developing collaborative field by putting together different types of applications of nonlinear dynamics (geometrical tools in dynamical systems, numerical methods, computational schemes, dynamical measures, …) to different problems in neuroscience (mononeuronal dynamics, network activity, cognitive problems, …). Registration deadline is 31st March 2014.
