Conferences, symposia, workshops, courses. Our members are actively involved in many events. Here is the current list of upcoming events of interest to computational neuroscience researchers.
The Thalamus Conference aims to extend the dialogue and discussion on the thalamus that began with the previous online Thalamus e-Symposium.
This online workshop brings together researchers in the fields of computational neuroscience, machine learning, and neuromorphic engineering to present their work and discuss ways of translating these findings into a better understanding of neural circuits. Topics include artificial and biologically plausible learning algorithms and the dissection of trained spiking circuits toward understanding neural processing. We have a manageable number of talks with ample time for discussions.
Neuroscience 2023 will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., November 11-15, 2023.
Keeping in mind difficulty around travel to Washington, D.C., to attend Neuroscience 2023 in-person, SfN Council decided to offer a sampling of annual meeting content virtually, including the opportunity for virtual posters.
Subcortical sensory circuits play a fundamental role in the perception of the outside world. However, they are often thought of as relay stations that passively transmit sensory information to the cortex or simple effectors of behavioral reflexes. Recent studies, however, suggest that subcortical pathways also perform sophisticated computations, such as integrating peripheral information among many sensory pathways and the animal’s internal states. This meeting will gather leading researchers in the field to discuss different subcortical circuits involving various sensory modalities and revisit their increasingly complex and interconnected contributions to perception, behavior, and cognition. Furthermore, we will delve into various topics which often play an interconnected role with sensory perception and are crucial to a detailed yet holistic understanding of perceptual circuits.
Imbizo is a Xhosa word meaning “a gathering to share knowledge”. The IBRO-Simons Computational Neuroscience Imbizo, or isiCNI is exactly that: an opportunity for African and international students to learn about cutting edge research techniques in computational neuroscience.
The ninth edition of the Latin American School on Computational Neuroscience – LASCON IX will be held at the NeuroMat Center in the main campus of the University of São Paulo in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. The school will last for four weeks and will cover the following topics: single-cell models (biophysically detailed, reduced and simplified), circuit and network models of biophysically detailed and simplified spiking neurons, probabilistic neuronal models, synaptic plasticity and learning, spike train analysis, neural population models, neuron-glia interaction models, models of extracellular fields, brain criticality, computational psychiatry, traveling waves in neural systems, and dynamics of neuronal functional connectivity. These models will be illustrated with the use of the programs NEURON, NetPyNE, NEST, XPP-AUTO, Brian and The Virtual Brain. The faculty is composed of an international team of world-renowned researchers in the field of computational neuroscience.
This conference is planned as a truly interdisciplinary event. We intend to bring many communities together that are working to expand our understanding of the human brain, and to engineer brain-inspired technologies of low power and increased computational abilities as well as their application in present and future AI systems. The location is the Eurogress, in the heart of the historic city of Aachen, with close connections to RWTH University and nearby Forschungszentrum Jülich.
The FENS Forum of neuroscience is the largest international neuroscience meeting in Europe. Taking place in even years, the FENS Forum rotates between different European countries and attracts more than 7,000 international delegates.
