The aCNS School is a 10-day intensive course in mathematical and computational neuroscience. It offers students working in computational neuroscience and already familiar with its interdisciplinary nature, an intensive pedagogy of advanced theoretical and computational tools, designed to qualify young researchers to push the frontiers of the field. 
 
The course counts with and introductory day + 4 two-day blocks in charge of the following researchers:
 
   * Yoram Burak, Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel
   * Maneesh Sahani, Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, UCL, Longon, England
   * Sara Solla, Nothwestern University, Chicago, USA
   * John Hertz, Niels Bohr Institute, Stockholm, Sweden
   * Moritz Helmstaedter, MPI for Brain research, Frankfurt, Germany

 
The consecutive two day thematic blocks are dedicated to theoretical perspectives on neural assemblies. Each lecturer will give a self-contained introduction to a particular set of theoretical tools in a block of two morning lectures. In the afternoon, participants will work on problem sets designed to develop proficiency in these theoretical tools and approaches. An additional set of evening ‘easy’ lectures will give the opportunity to discuss significant advances in the field. These are held by:

  * David Hansel, University Paris Descartes, France
  * Walter Stühmer, MPI for Experimental Medicine, Göttingen, Germany
  * Alexander Gail, German Primate Center, Göttingen, Germany
 
The course takes place at the Department of Nonlinear Dynamics of the Max-Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Göttingen. There is no registration fee. Course language is English.
