*7th Baltic-Nordic School on Neuroinformatics BNNI 2019*

*Modeling Healthy and Diseased Brain: From Dendrites to Neurons and
Networks***

*Frankfurt am Main, Germany*

*26-28 August 2019*

**

*We invite*

Advanced master students, doctoral students, and postdoctoral
researchers are welcome to participate in the BNNI 2019 to be held at
the FIAS, the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, Frankfurt Main,
Germany in August 2019.

*The Course*

The course is interdisciplinary and covers modeling at different levels
of organization of the brain, from single neurons to microcircuits and
networks. We will focus on differences between healthy and diseased brains.
Participants will learn about compartmental and morphological modeling
of synapses, dendrites and neurons, as well as simulating local field
potentials (LFPs). The course combines lectures, tutorials and computer
exercises. This summer school is the seventh in the series of the
Baltic-Nordic Courses on Neuroinformatics (BNNI 2013 in Kaunas,
Lithuania; BNNI 2014 in Tampere, Finland; BNNI 2015 in Tartu, Estonia;
BNNI 2016 in Warsaw, Poland; BNNI 2017 in Kaunas, Lithuania; BNNI 2018
in Ventspils, Latvia).

*Target audience*

The target audience of the course will be advanced master students,
doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers in biomedical and
technology sciences, from medicine, biology, psychology, to mathematics,
informatics, information technology, physics, chemistry, who would like
to get an introduction to neuroinformatics and computational
neuroscience. Some experience with programming and quantitative
reasoning as well as strong interest in computational and mathematical
modeling of the brain will be desirable but not necessary to benefit
from the school. We will use the NEURON simulation environment for
biophysical realistic models of neurons and the Matlab software package
including the TREES toolbox. Desktop computers will be provided for the
exercise part.

*Important Dates*

*            15 May 2019*: Application deadline
*  1 June 2019:* Acceptance notification
*26 - 28 August 2019:* School

*Venue*

The lectures will be held on 26th to 28th of August, 2019, at the:

Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies,

Ruth-Moufang-Straße 1, 60438 Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Frankfurt is a very international city in the heart of Germany and
Europe. The city centre combines the historic, medieval past with the
modern, economic present. We are looking forward to welcoming you in
Frankfurt!

*Practical arrangements*

The organizers will provide teaching materials, meals and coffee during
the course. The participants are expected to cover their travel and
health insurance expenses. There is a small fee to be paid (30 - 100 EUR).

If you are not sure whether you can afford it, apply anyway. We have
some stipends for members of OCNS (www.cnsorg.org) to give away.
Student residence is provided and close to the campus in the Relexa hotel.
