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
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
