The Second Announcement and Call for Papers
10th Tamagawa-Riken Dynamic Brain Forum-DBF'07
5-9 March 2007
Hakuba Tokyu Hotel in Hakuba Village, Nagano Prefecture, Japan
The 10th Tamagawa-Riken Dynamic Brain Forum (DBF'07) will be held on
March 5-9, 2007 at Hakuba Tokyu Hotel,
URL: http://www.tokyuhotel.co.jp/en/TR/TR_HAKUB/index.html in Hakuba
Village, Nagano Prefecture, Japan. The Dynamic Brain Forum (DBF) is
an annual international forum organized by the Tamagawa University
Brain Science Research Center. In 2007, the DBF will be co-sponsored
by Riken Brain Institute, Integrative Brain Research Project,
Japanese Neural Network Society, Aihara Complexity Modelling Project
and by the 21st Century COE Programs in Tamagawa University, Kyushu
Institute of Technology and Hokkaido University.
The theme of DBF'07 is Cortical Dynamics: Physiology, Theory and
Applications. The forum is organized in several sessions focused on
different aspects of the theme, with lectures in each session
followed by a thematic discussion. In addition, there will be poster
presentations on newest results by the discussants and participants.
Posters will be up during first two days of meeting, allowing
comprehensive discussions by participants.
Preceding the forum, there also be two full days of Tutorial
Programs, primarily oriented toward young researchers and Ph.D.
students interested in the theory and applications of various kinds
of dynamic brain function. Tutorial presenters and topics will include,
Dr. S. Amari: Mathematical Theories of Dynamics of Neural Information
Dr. I. Tsuda: Chaotic dynamics reality in brain dynamics,
Dr. K. Doya: Neural implementation of reinforcement learning,
Dr. W. Freeman: Recent advances in high-resolution analysis of EEG
Dr. A. Aertsen: Cortical Network Dynamics - Precision in a Noisy
Dr. G. L. Gerstein: Coding dynamics- (a) repeating firing patterns,
(b) firing irregularity,
Dr. M. Abeles: Brain structure and neural-network architecture,
Application dates and Program schedule
