Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to draw your attention to the fourth edition of the workshop
on advanced methods in theoretical neuroscience. The programme is intended
for the exchange of new approaches and methods, and presentations that will
spark new ideas for future developments.

Please see the details below or at

Best regards,

Viola Priesemann, Rainer Engelken, Farzad Farkhooi and Jonathan Kadmon

*Structure and disorder: From random connections to functional circuits*

July 10-12, 2019, Göttingen (Tutorials: July 9th)


This workshop will focus on the inherent difficulties of studying the
underlying dynamics that guide the synaptic organization in neuronal
circuits. The forum is intended for researchers to not only share results
but also survey and discuss recent advances in methods and to pinpoint
limitations of the existing theoretical tools.

These exchanges will be complemented by poster presentations from students
and postdocs. A day of tutorial sessions will be held prior to the main
meeting, covering some of the background and methods discussed in the
