    Here is the First Announcement  of the

    10th SICC International Tutorial Workshop on "Topics in nonlinear dynamics"

    <<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)
                          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.
