*/NeuroBridges 2019 Summer school , Cluny, France/*
*/( September 8th - September 19th, 2019)/*

I would like to bring to your attention the *NeuroBridges 2019 
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. This year the school will primarily focus on the 
neural basis and computational principles underlying sensory- motor 
tasks, in which the agent chooses from a small number of actions based 
on sensory and operant cues.

*The forthcoming NeuroBridges 2019* will be a ten-day summer school. 
Students will attend lectures delivered by a group of leading 
neuroscientists, experimentalists as well as theoreticians, which will 
address the fundamental questions in the field of decision making. 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 
(but not only) from the Middle East and the Mediterranean region either 
working in their home countries or abroad. We will consider applicants 
with some background in related fields in neuroscience or cognitive 

Through the online application system, you will be asked to provide 
personal details, academic background, a motivation letter that should 
include a paragraph about your quantitative skills and a CV. In 
addition, we request two recommendation letters.

The school will take place between *September 8 and September 19, 
2019* in Le Centre de Conferences Internationales de Cluny (CCIC) 
<http://www.ccic.eu/index.html>. Cluny is a small medieval town in 
Burgundy, France, located about 400km southeast of Paris (accessible by 
fast train, TGV).

All costs of registration and accommodation will be covered by the 
organizers. A limited number of travel grants will also be available.

*NeuroBridges* is co-organized by Ahmed El Hady 
<http://scholar.princeton.edu/ahmedelhady/home> (Princeton Neuroscience 
Institute, USA), Yonatan Loewenstein 
<http://elsc.huji.ac.il/loewenstein/home>(Hebrew University of 
Jerusalem, Israel) and David Hansel 
<https://neurophys.biomedicale.parisdescartes.fr/members/david-hansel/> (CNRS, 
Paris, France).

Review of applications will end in May 2019.
