*/NeuroBridges 2018 Summer school , Cluny, France/*
*/( October 2nd - October 12th, 2017 )/*

I would like to bring to your attention the *NeuroBridges 2018 
Computational Neuroscience School*.
NeuroBridges <https://www.facebook.com/NeuroBridges/>is a one-of-a-kind 
series of scientific meetings in brain research, which brings together 
Mediterranean and Middle Eastern scientists, in order to promote 
international scientific cooperation in system and computational 
neuroscience. A major goal of this school is to serve as a bridge 
between experimental and theoretical neuroscientists, addressing 
system-level questions. The organizers of NeuroBridges also believe that 
these scientific collaborations can lead to personal relations, which 
eventually may help alleviate the political distress in the Middle East.

Following the success of NeuroBridges 2017 
<http://decision-making-lab.com/NeuroBridges/neurobridges2017.html> school, 
NeuroBridges  2018 
<http://decision-making-lab.com/NeuroBridges/neurobridges2018.html> will 
be a nine day summer school 
which will take place in Cluny, France. The school is organized by Ahmed 
El Hady (Princeton), David Hansel (CNRS) and Yonatan Loewenstein (Hebrew 
University). It will be comprised of lectures delivered by a group of 
leading neuroscientists, experimentalists as well as theoreticians, 
which will address the fundamental questions in contemporary 
neuroscience. In addition to the lectures, the students will work in 
groups on small research projects.

The school is intended for graduate students and postdocs, primarily 
from the Middle East and the Mediterranean region, either working in 
their home countries or abroad.  We will consider applicants with some 
background in applied mathematics, computer science, electrical 
engineering or physics, interested in theoretical brain and cognitive 
sciences. We will also consider those with biological or medical 
background given that they show proof of basic mathematical knowledge.

The school will take place between October 2 and October 12, 2018 in Le 
Centre de Conférences Internationales de Cluny (CCIC). Cluny is a small 
medieval town in Burgundy, France, located about 400km southeast of 
Paris (accessible by fast train, TGV).

The deadline for application is *May 31st, 2018 *and the following is 
the website including the link for the online application:
