*Third Annual Computational Sensory-Motor Neuroscience Summer School 
(CoSMo 2013)*
Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada
August 4-18, 2013

We would like to invite you to join us for the third annual 
Computational Sensory-Motor Neuroscience Summer School. The course is 
about experimental, computational and medical aspects of movement 
science with a focus on data/model sharing. Covered topics include 
Bayesian approaches, motor control, computational neuroimaging, 
sensory-motor transformations and learning.

An important focus is on doing research as opposed to just hearing about 
it. Each teaching module will take up two days with morning lecture 
sessions. Afternoon sessions involve hands-on Matlab programming, 
simulation and data-analysis. Newly acquired computational tools can 
also be applied in 2-week evening group research projects.

The course is aimed at students and post-doctoral fellows from diverse 
backgrounds including Life Sciences, Psychology, Computer Science, 
Physics, Mathematics and Engineering. Basic knowledge in calculus, 
linear algebra and Matlab is expected. Enrollment will be limited to 40 

For more information and to apply, please go to 

The school is co-organized by Drs Gunnar Blohm and Konrad Körding, with 
contributions from the Canadian Action and Perception Network (CAPnet), 
the Queen's University Centre for Neuroscience Studies (Kingston, ON, 
Canada) and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (IL, USA). It 
receives funding from the National Sciences and Engineering Research 
Council of Canada (NSERC) via an NSERC-CREATE training grant on 
"Computational Approaches in Neuroscience -- Action, Control & 
Transformations", and from the National Science Foundation (NSF, USA).
