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