October 12, Florence, Italy
A one-day event with prestigious invited speakers
From the simplest vision architectures in insects to the extremely
complex cortical hierarchy in primates, it is fascinating to observe how
biology found efficient solutions to solve vision problems. Pioneers in
computer vision dreamt of building machines that could match and
perhaps outperform human vision. Although this goal has not been reached
on the scale originally foreseen, the field of computer vision has
overcome many other challenges from an unexpected variety of
applications and fostered entirely new scientific and technological
areas such as computer graphics and medical image analysis. In spite of
great progress, there remain many open challenges in both biological and
computer vision. …
Applications are invited for the post of ‘Marie Curie Actions Experienced Researcher’ to work with Professor Stephen Coombes and Dr Noah Russell on a Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded project in Mathematical Neuroscience to underpin work at Nottingham, United Kingdom on Synthetic Cognition.
This full-time post is available from the 3 September 2012 or as soon as possible thereafter and will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of 24 months.

We are pleased to announce the second CINN Neural Fields Conference, held April 19-21, 2012, at the University of Reading, UK. The conference is sponsored by the CINN, with the support of the EPSRC.
Neural Computation and Neural Field Theory is a growing and very active area of research with important applications in medicine and technology. Activities range from the simulation of individual neurons to numerical treatment of neural field equations, from modeling and identification of cognitive and psychological processes in a neural environment to building natural or artificial devices. The …

Neurodynamics: a workshop on heterogeneity, noise, delays, and plasticity in neural systems
Mar 5 – 7, 2012
Registration now open (and will close on Jan 6 2012)
Although mathematical work on Neurodynamics has increased in recent years, the study of heterogeneity, noise, delays, and plasticity needs much further attention. A firmer mathematical framework for treating dynamical systems with these attributes will pave the way for a more comprehensive understanding of the dynamic states of biological neural networks, and their role in facilitating natural computation. This three-day conference will bring together experts in these key areas to seed a new phase of theoretical work to develop those pieces of mathematical theory which are critical for future realistic modelling studies of the brain.

Semester on Theoretical, Mathematical and Computational Neuroscience
October – November 2011
Registration from June, 1st to September, 1st, 2011
Neuroscience and its applications are greatly developing world-wide and Europe is one of the important contributors to the advancement of this discipline. Because of the variety of topics that it has to address, it is characterized by a very broad inter-disciplinarity and requires the cooperation of actors in several fields of knowledge.
In this context, the need for developing new theoretical, mathematical, and computational tools can be clearly identified and must be addressed. The purpose of this semester is to present some of the relevant modern mathematical tools through short courses and to explore several facets of the current research through workshops.
Program committee: P. Bressloff …
The Journal of Mathematical Neuroscience (JMN) levies an article processing charge of £833/$1300/€1000 for each manuscript accepted after peer review.
However, if your institution is a BioMed Central member (http://www.biomedcentral.com/inst/) then this cost will already be covered in full or in part. Moreover, authors from the following developing countries do not have to pay open access fees: http://www.biomedcentral.com/info/authors/oawaiverfund/
More good news is that for accepted papers in 2011 we are further aiming to offer fee waivers to those who do not qualify via the above schemes.
