Mathematical Neuroscience 2010
Apr 19-21 2010

Registration 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:

Paul Bressloff (Oxford Centre for Collaborative Applied Mathematics,  
Romain Brette (Département d'Etudes Cognitives, Ecole Normale  
Supérieure, Paris)
Peter Dayan (Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Institute, UCL, London)
Bard Ermentrout (Department of Mathematics, University of Pittsburgh)
Kevin Gurney (Department of Psychology, University of Sheffield)
Yixin Guo (Department of Mathematic, Drexel University)
Arjen van Ooyen (Department of Integrative Neurophysiology, VU  
University Amsterdam)
Alex Roxin (Center for Theoretical Neuroscience, Columbia University)
Steven Schiff (Center for Neural Engineering, Penn State University)
Eric Shea-Brown (Department of Applied Mathematics, University of  
Louis Tao (Center for Bioinformatics, Peking University)
Paul Tiesinga (Radboud University Nijmegen)
Xiao-Jing Wang (Department of Neurobiology, Yale University)
John White (Department of Bioengineering, Utah)
Si Wu (Neural Information Processing, Shanghai Institute for  
Biological Sciences)

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 18 April).  Some financial assistance is  
available to assist graduate students who attend BOTH the training  
workshop and the conference.
