Edinburgh INCF Summer School in Neuroinformatics - "Towards an
integrative computational neuroscience: Modelling across scales of
26th August to 2nd September 2012 in Edinburgh, Scotland
Supported by the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility
(INCF), the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA)
and the University of Edinburgh Doctoral Training Programme in
COURSE ORGANISERS: David Sterratt, Matt Nolan and Michael Herrmann
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 4th May 2012.
This summer school will introduce analysis techniques and modelling
tools to address neuroscientific questions spanning multiple levels of
investigation, from genomics and proteomics to whole-brain imaging,
psychophysics and behaviour.
Each day will have a theme that connects data acquired at multiple
levels, such as genetic, proteomic, electrophysiological,
multi-electrode neural, imaging, and behavioural. Morning sessions are
given by invited lecturers and aim to give insight and inspiration
into how modelling can bridge gaps between various levels of
neuroscientific investigation. They will be followed in the afternoon
by practical sessions focussing on hands-on use of software tools
related to the morning sessions. Keynote presentations in the evening
will highlight recent high profile studies.
SPEAKERS WILL INCLUDE:
* Douglas Armstrong (Edinburgh)
* Jim Bednar (Edinburgh)
* Upi Bhalla (Bangalore)
* Angela Bongaarts (Allen Brain Atlas)
* Robert Cannon (Textensor Ltd)
* Padraig Gleeson (UCL)
* Sacha Nelson (Brandeis)
* Matt Nolan (Edinburgh)
* Astrid Prinz (Emory)
* Arnd Roth (UCL)
* Peggy Series(Edinburgh)
WHO SHOULD GO?
The course will be suitable for neuroscience researchers wishing to
develop interests in systems biology approaches and informatics
researchers with a strong interest in neuroscience. A prerequisite for
attending the course is a basic knowledge of neuroscience.
REGISTRATION FEE AND ACCOMMODATION
* There will be a course registration fee of £50.
* This will cover accommodation, course materials, refreshments during
the day and attendance at the workshop dinner.
* Places on the Summer school are limited to 20.
* The course organisers will select from the applicants taking into
account submitted CV and supporting letter, and will aim to ensure a
balance experimentalists and theoreticians, PhD students, postdocs
and faculty without restriction on nationality.
The course will provide bursaries to contribute towards travel costs
for PhD students.
