Mathematical Neuroscience Meeting
Mar 23-25, 2009
Royal Society of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland

First announcement

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 75 people. The schedule will  
allow for a number of poster presentations.

Invited speakers:

Ad Aertsen (Freiburg)
Michael Breakspear (Sydney)
Carson Chow (Bethesda)
Geoff Goodhill (Queensland)
Vincent Hakim (Paris)
Viktor Jirsa (Marseille)
Carlo Laing (Auckland)
Peter Latham (London)
Andre Longtin (Ottawa)
Stefano Panzeri (Manchester)
David Pinto (Rochester)
Horacio Rotstein (Newark)
Andrey Shilnikov (Atlanta)
Dan Tranchina (New York)
Krasimira Tsaneva-Atanasova (Bristol)
Carl Van Vreeswijk (Paris)

The registration fee for the conference is 80.00 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 22 Mar).
Some financial assistance is available to assist graduate students who  
attend BOTH the training workshop and the conference.

Further details of this meeting, including how to register, may be  
found at

Note that registration will not open until Dec 1st 2008.
