Applications are welcome and should be made by using the application form on
this web page. The number of attendees is limited. The registration fee for
the conference is 100 Euro. Costs for accommodation will be covered during
the workshop. Limited funding is available on request to partially cover
travel expenses. Please note that childcare is available upon request.

Deadline for applications is June 30, 2009.

Progress in understanding the global organization of brain functions has
remained elusive up to now. Indeed, normal operation of the brain is
characterized by complex dynamics at multiple temporal and spatial scales.
Although different experimental techniques exist (microelectrode recordings,
EEG, MEG, and fMRI, among others), a simultaneous monitoring of the
different scales is still scarce. Interpretation of the data coming from
such experiments requires a thorough understanding of how different scales
integrate in a complex dynamical system. Within this context, the purpose of
this workshop is to bring together experimental neuroscientists and
physicists experienced in the study of multiscale processes, in order to
help bridge the gap currently existing between theoretical and experimental
