08.01. – 02.02.2024
São Paulo, Brazil

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.

Ringvorlesung Wintersemester 2023/2024 – Herz und Hirn gemeinsam im Fokus

07.11. – 06.02.2024
Göttingen, Germany

Herz und Hirn gemeinsam im Fokus

Erkrankungen des Herzens und des Gehirns gehören zu den häufigsten Todesursachen weltweit. Manche Erkrankungen betreffen sogar beide Organe. Obgleich Herz und Gehirn auf den ersten Blick sehr unterschiedlich erscheinen, weisen ihre elektrisch erregbaren Hauptzellen viele Gemeinsamkeiten auf. Beide verwenden ähnliche Funktionseinheiten, die der Erregbarkeit der Zellen dienen und über die sie physiologische Leistungen als Teil aktiver Netzwerke erbringen. Fehlfunktionen dieser Nanometer-kleinen Einheiten führen oft zu Erkrankungen.

Ziel des Göttinger Exzellenzclusters „Multiscale Bioimaging: von molekularen Maschinen zu Netzwerken erregbarer Zellen“ (MBExC) ist, diese Funktionseinheiten von Herz- und Nervenzellen zu verstehen, um daraus neue Diagnostik- und Therapieansätze entwickeln und gesellschaftlich relevante Fragen in der Herz- und Hirnforschung beantworten zu können.

Im Rahmen der Ringvorlesung gewähren MBExC-Wissenschaftler*innen am Beispiel spannender Forschungsergebnisse umfassende Einblicke in den einzigartigen Forschungsansatz des Clusters. Sie stellen innovative Technologien vor, die ihren Ursprung oft in Göttinger Pionierarbeiten haben und am MBExC weiterentwickelt werden, und zeigen auf, wie genau man heutzutage in das Gewebe und die Zelle „hineinschauen“ kann. All diese Technologien liefern uns einzigartige Einblicke in unser Herz und unser Gehirn.

Computational and Systems Neuroscience — COSYNE

29.02. – 05.03.2024
Lisbon and Cascais, Portugal

The annual Cosyne meeting provides an inclusive forum for the exchange of empirical and theoretical approaches to problems in systems neuroscience, in order to understand how neural systems function.

International Conference on Neuromorphic Computing and Engineering (ICNCE)

03.06. – 06.06.2024
Aachen, Germany

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.

25.06. – 29.06.2024
Milos, Greece

The AREADNE conferences bring scientific leaders from around the world to present their recent findings on the functioning of neuronal ensembles in an informal and beautiful setting on Milos. The conference series emphasizes interaction with a size and pace that encourages in-depth discussion. Interested researchers are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract for poster presentation as attendance is strictly limited, and the conference typically sells out. Abstract submission deadline is 26 January 2024. Send us your best work!
