Advanced COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE Summer School in Göttingen, Germany

“Neural circuit theories for primate cognition”

September 02nd - 10th, 2017

*REGISTRATION **DEADLINE *Ju**ly**2**3**, 201**7****


Please, feel free to distribute this email to students and postdocs 
potentially interested in the school.

The aCNS school within the Advanced Computational Neuroscience School in 
the Emotion-Cognition-Link-Series is a *9**-day intensive course* in 
*mathematical and computational neuroscience*. It offers an intensive 
pedagogy of advanced mathematical and computational tools to students 
working in computational neuroscience and already familiar with its 
interdisciplinary nature and is designed to qualify young researchers to 
push the frontiers of the field.

The following researchers are in charge of the 4 two-day theoretical 
blocks and 4 evening lectures:

* Nicolas Brunel <https://galton.uchicago.edu/%7Enbrunel/>, /University 
of Chicago/, Chicago, USA

* Alexander Gail <https://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/57950.html>, /German 
Primate Center/, Göttingen, Germany

* Raoul Memmesheimer <https://memmesheimer.net/>, /University of Bonn/, 
Bonn, Germany

* John Beggs <http://www.indiana.edu/%7Eiubphys/faculty/jmbeggs.shtml>, 
/University of //Indiana/, Bloomington, USA

* Julia Fischer 
<http://www.dpz.eu/en/unit/cognitive-ethology/about-us.html>, /German 
Primate Center/, Göttingen, Germany

* Eckart Altenmüller 
/University for Music and Theater/, Hanover, Germany

* Annekathrin Schacht <http://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/356202.html>, 
/University of Göttingen/, Göttingen, Germany

* Georg Martius <https://is.tuebingen.mpg.de/person/gmartius>, 
/M//PI//for Intelligent Systems/, Tübingen, Germany

The consecutive two day thematic blocks are dedicated to mathematical 
approaches to circuit dynamics. 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 both the mathematical and 
computational tools learned earlier that day. An additional set of 
evening ‘easy’ lectures will give the opportunity to discuss significant 
advances in the field.

The course takes place at the Department of Nonlinear Dynamics of the 
Max-Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Göttingen. 
Registration fee is 200 €. Course language is English. Housing is 
provided by the school. Travel grants can be applied for.

*Only 15 participants will accepted. We invite applicants to apply by 
filling out the application form at:*

*www.bccn-goettingen.de* <http://www.bccn-goettingen.de/events/cns-course>

*and have their reference letters submitted by *July 23, 2017*.*

Best regards and looking forward to seeing you in Göttingen,

B. Feulner, D. Regel, A. Schmidt and J. Wilting (local committee, PhD 

on behalf of the course directors

Prof. F. Wolf and Prof. A. Schacht
