Dear Computational Neuroscience community

This is an official announcement of the next "15th Granada Seminar on 
Computational and Statistical Physics"  that will be held in Granada 
Spain, next September 17-20, 2019
in the Science Faculty of the University of Granada, Spain.

The Granada Seminar is a topical conference whose pedagogical power is 
especially channelled towards young researchers. In fact, one 
interesting aspect of this meeting is the opportunity given to young 
researchers to present their results and to discuss their problems with 
leading specialists.

The Granada Seminar is Organized by the "Institute Carlos I  for 
Theoretical and Computational Physics, University of Granada, and it is 
Sponsored by:

- Institute Carlos I, for theoretical and computational physics,  
University of Granada:
- European Physical Society

This year edition the main topic of the conference is "Stochastic and 
Collective Effects in Neural Systems" including Biological aspects, 
Modeling, Dynamics, Networks, Function and Applications.

The aim of this meeting is to bring together scientists interested in 
Neural Systems and their statistical and collective effects from real 
experiments, theoretical and computational models to applications.
