We invite advanced master students, doctoral students, and postdoctoral 
researchers to participate in the BNNI 2016 to be held at the Nencki 
Institute of Experimental Biology and the Faculty of Physics of the 
University of Warsaw. The course is interdisciplinary and covers 
modeling at different levels of organization of the brain, analysis of 
neural data, brain atlases, and other aspects of neuroinformatics. The 
course combines lectures, tutorials and computer exercises. This summer 
school is the fourth in the series of the Baltic-Nordic Courses on 
Neuroinformatics (BNNI 2013 in Kaunas, BNNI 2014 in Tampere, BNNI 2015 
in Tartu).

The target audience of the course will be advanced master students, 
doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers in natural and life 
sciences, from physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, 
informatics and information technology, to biology, medicine, and 
psychology, who would like to get an introduction to neuroinformatics 
and computational neuroscience. Some experience with programming and 
quantitative reasoning as well as strong interest in computational and 
mathematical modeling of the brain are required to benefit from the school.


Faculty includes
Piotr Durka, University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland
Gaute Einevoll, Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Aas, Norway
Bruce Graham, University of Stirling, United Kingdom
Marja-Leena Linne, Tampere University of Technology, Finland

Venue
The lectures will be held at the Nencki Institute of Experimental 
Biology of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the computer classes in 
the Faculty of Physics of the University of Warsaw. The two buildings 
are next to each other, they are located at the center of Ochota campus, 
encompassing a number of university departments and research institutes.


Practical arrangements
There is a small tuition fee of 100 euros. The organizers will provide 
teaching, meals and coffee during the course. The participants are 
expected to cover their travel and health insurance expenses as well as 
lodging. Small financial support is available for those without funding. 
Inexpensive lodging for all the students will be organized.

The course is supported by the IBRO-PERC committee, University of 
Warsaw, and the Nencki Institute

We are looking forward to welcome you at the BNNI 2016 in Warsaw, Poland!
