We invite graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and advanced
researchers in neuroscience and related fields to participate in the 2nd
Baltic-Nordic Summer School on Neuroinformatics, to be held at Tampere
University of Technology, Tampere, Finland, on June 10-13, 2014. The Summer
School is focused on computational modeling of brain functions at the
cellular, network, and cognitive levels and on new emerging multiscale
modeling techniques. Lectures also contain introductions to tools for
multiscale modeling, databases, and sharing of data, as well as examples on
how to do computational modeling of cognitive functions and neurological
diseases.

Venue:

The summer school will be held in Tampere, the third largest city in Finland
with over 200,000 inhabitants. Tampere is one of Finland’s fastest growing
urban centers and, according to a survey, the most popular city to live and
study in. Tampere is located in southern Finland 180 km north of Helsinki.
The Summer school will be held at Tampere University of Technology, which
has strong research tradition in natural sciences, engineering, and fields
related to industry and business. Leading-edge fields include signal
processing, optics and photonics, intelligent machines, biomodelling, and
built environment.

Important dates:

- 7 March 2014: Application deadline
- 17 March 2014: Acceptance notification
- 10 - 13 June 2014: Summer school
