Dear colleagues,

we are sending the Second Announcement and Extended Deadline of the

2nd International Workshop on Neurodynamics (Ndy’18)
September 26-29, 2018
Castro-Urdiales, Spain


*** Scientific committee ***
Peter Ashwin, University of Exeter, UK.
Roberto Barrio, Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain.
Silvia Daun, University of Cologne, Germany.
Mathieu Desroches, Inria, Sophia Antipolis, France.
Toni Guillamon, Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña, Spain.
Serafim Rodrigues, Basque Center of Applied Mathematics, Spain.

Neuroscience is nowadays one of the most collaborative and active
scientific research fields as it has been increasingly involving the
participation of experts from other disciplines. In particular,
computational and mathematical aspects of neuroscience are currently
playing an important role both in modeling and replicating experimental
findings and in explaining the underlying mechanisms of neurophysiological
or cognitive processes. Differential equations are ubiquitous in the
modeling of such phenomena and, consequently, nonlinear dynamics and
dynamical systems techniques become fundamental sources of new mathematical
and computational tools to study neuroscience models.

The aim of this Second Workshop on Neurodynamics, NDy'18 (first edition was
NDy'14) is to present an overview of successful achievements in this
rapidly developing collaborative field by putting together different types
of applications of nonlinear dynamics (geometrical tools in dynamical
systems, numerical methods, computational schemes, dynamical measures,...)
to different problems in neuroscience (mononeuronal dynamics, network
activity, cognitive problems,...). Additional emphasis will be put on
experimental findings seeking for theoretical explanations, and therefore
this meeting is focussed on using mathematics as the primary tool for
elucidating the fundamental mechanisms responsible for experimentally
observed behavior in the applied neurosciences. Importantly, it will draw
attention to those pieces of mathematical theory which are likely to be
relevant to future studies of the brain. The final goal is spreading
together mathematical methodology and neuroscience challenges and
stimulating future cross-collaborations among participants, being
Mathematical Neuroscience the generic topic for NDy'18.

The workshop length will be 4 days, distributed in special sessions and
talks, with several round tables on different topics.

Early Confirmed Speakers Include:

Peter Ashwin, University of Exeter, UK.
Silvia Daun, University of Cologne, Germany.
