Mathematical Neuroscience 2011

Apr 11-13 2011
Edinburgh, UK
Registration now open
This three-day conference will provide an overview of the current state of research in mathematical approaches to neuroscience, bringing together both physical and life scientists.  Drawing together the field in this way will allow for a critical discussion of the relevant experimental facts and of various mathematical methods and techniques that have been successfully applied to date.  Importantly, it will draw attention to, and help develop, those pieces of mathematical theory which are likely to be relevant to future studies of the brain.
The meeting will consist of invited speakers and registered participants, though will be limited to 100 people. The schedule will allow for a number of poster presentations.
Invited speakers:
Ernest Barretto (George Mason University)
Romain Brette (Département d’Etudes Cognitives, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris)
Jack Cowan (Department of Mathematics, University of Chicago)
Bard Ermentrout (Department of Mathematics, University of Pittsburgh)
Yixin Guo (Department of Mathematics, Drexel University)
Kenneth Harris (Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College)
Axel Hutt (INRIA, France)
Máté Lengyel (Computational and Biological Learning Lab, University of Cambridge)
Arjen van Ooyen (Department of Integrative Neurophysiology, VU University Amsterdam)
Alex Roxin (Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, Spain)
Eric Shea-Brown (Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Washington)
Louis Tao (Center for Bioinformatics, Peking University)
Paul Tiesinga (Radboud University Nijmegen)
John White (Department of Bioengineering, Utah)
Si Wu (Neural Information Processing, Shanghai Institute for Biological Sciences)

The registration fee for the conference is 90.00 GBP.

A one-day training workshop for PhD students and post-docs entitled “An introduction to Mathematical Neuroscience” will also take place prior to the meeting (on 10 April).  Some financial assistance is available to assist graduate students who attend BOTH the training workshop and the conference.
