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 goal of this EMBO Workshop is to bring together scientific leaders from around the world whose latest work on molecular, biophysical, anatomical, computational and/or functional aspects of dendrites can further our understanding of how these beautiful structures contribute to different brain functions and their abnormalities.
Julijana Gjorgjieva, Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, Frankfurt a.M.; Technical University of Munich
Founded in 2002, the Brain Connectivity Workshop (BCW) is an annual international meeting for in-depth discussions of all aspects of brain connectivity research. By bringing together experts in computational neuroscience, neuroscience methodology and experimental neuroscience, it aims to improve the understanding of the relationship between anatomical connectivity, brain dynamics and cognitive function.
The NEST Conference provides an opportunity for the NEST Community to meet, exchange success stories, swap advice, learn about current developments in and around NEST spiking network simulation and its application.
A project-oriented course designed to teach computational neuroscience based on the STEPS, NEURON, Brian, NEST and Python software packages.
Viola Priesemann, MPG Göttingen, Germany
Research in Encoding And Decoding of Neural Ensembles
The main aim of ENCODS is to provide a space for early-career neuroscientists where they can share their research in the form of talks and poster presentations. The ENCODS meeting is organised in partnership with the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS).
The International Conference on Mathematical Neuroscience (ICMNS) is an inter-disciplinary conference series, bringing together theoretical/computational neuroscientists and mathematicians. The conferences are aimed at scientists interested in using or developing mathematical techniques for neuroscience problems.
Wilhelm Stannat, TU Berlin
The course is interdisciplinary and covers modeling at different levels of organization of the brain as well as elements of machine learning. The course combines lectures, tutorials and computer exercises for computational modeling and analysis of brain functions at multiple physiological and anatomical scales.
Europe’s largest international neuroscience conference, covering all domains in modern brain research from basic to translational research.
The Neural Systems and Behavior (NS&B) Course is the premier discovery-driven training opportunity for the next generation of neuroethologists and systems neuroscientists. It is an 8 week intensive lecture and laboratory course held at the Marine Biological Lab in Woods Hole, MA, every summer.
Application deadline: February 1, 2022
This newly established European Summer School will bring together PhD students, early postdocs, and an international list of faculty for an intense training programme in primate cognitive and systems neuroscience. It will provide an outstanding training opportunity for young scientists working with non-human primates.
Alexander Gail, German Primate Center
Stefan Treue, German Primate Center
This three-weeks school teaches the central ideas, methods, and practice of modern computational neuroscience through a combination of lectures and hands-on project work.
Methods in Computational Neuroscience introduces students to the computational and mathematical techniques that are used to address how the brain solves these problems at levels of neural organization ranging from single membrane channels to operations of the entire brain.
Application deadline: March 30, 2022
Imbizo is a Xhosa word meaning "a gathering to share knowledge". The IBRO-SIMONS Computational Neuroscience Imbizo, or ISi-CNI is exactly that: an opportunity for African and international students to learn about cutting edge research techniques in computational neuroscience.
The theme “Understanding Minds” reflects two perspectives: The conference provides a forum for all topics in the study of how minds – both human and artificial – operate. The theme also puts a specific spotlight on how cognitive systems make sense of the world, in particular in language comprehension and communication.
The first international Conference on Hybrid Societies is organized by the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center Hybrid Societies at Chemnitz University of Technology (CRC 1410 Hybrid Societies funded by the German Research Foundation), in which a highly interdisciplinary group of researchers from psychology and engineering sciences to mathematics and computer science to the social sciences and humanities address the challenges of shaping the coexistence of humans and machines in public environments.
