CAMP at Bangalore 2016 will run from 1 July to 16 July 2016. Please see the 
course website at http://camp.ncbs.res.in/

CAMP @ Bangalore (Computational Approaches to Memory and Plasticity at 
NCBS, Bangalore) is a 16-day summer school on the theory and simulation 
of learning, memory and plasticity in the brain. There is a special 
emphasis on multiscale phenomena in learning and memory: How do 
molecular, electrical, and network levels of computation come together 
to give memory?

The course will start with remedial tutorials on neuroscience / math / 
programming and then work upwards from sub-cellular electrical and 
chemical signaling in neurons, and onward to micro-circuits and networks.

Students worldwide are encouraged to apply. Accommodation and food will 
be free for the selected students. There is no registration fee. 
Students are advised to obtain independent travel grants.

Last date for applications: 21 February 2016.
