Few places left for registration at SICC workshop on

Nonlinear Dynamics in Computational Neuroscience: from Physics and
Biology to ICT

    to be held on September 07-09, 2015 in Turin, Italy

     Organizers: Fernando Corinto (Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy)
                 and Alessandro Torcini (ISC-CNR, Florence, Italy)

This workshop "Nonlinear Dynamics in Computational Neuroscience: from
Physics and Biology to ICT” offers an unique opportunity to meet
researchers working across (and
between) disciplines linked to Computational Neuroscience. In
particular, computational neuroscients,
neurophysiologists and neural engineers will have the opportunity to
present their most recent
results to a young audience, constituted mainly by PhD students, and
to interact directly among them.
The program ranges from nonlinear dynamical approaches to the
understanding of neural computation to
physiology, from the simulations of brain circuits to the development
of engineering devices and platforms for
neuromorphic computation. The speakers will be specifically advised to
perform didactic presentations
of their results in order to allow the active participation to the
discussion of young PhD students from
different disciplines as well as to researchers interested in the
field of Computational Neuroscience. Specific
poster sessions will be organized with the purpose on one side to
allow the young participants to present
their latest results and on the other side to increase the opportunity
of networking among the participants and
renowed experts of the discipline.

This workshop represents the 10th of a series of tutorial workshops
annually organized by the
Italian Society of Chaos and Complexity (SICC) to explore the
emergence of new research fields,
where nonlinear dynamics and control theory can play a relevant role.
These workshops have been traditionally
devoted to an audience mainly constituted by PhD students or young
researchers working in complex systems.
A poster session will be running during all the event and aimed to let
all the participants to present their recent results.
