[Comp-neuro] 3rd International Conference on Neural Field Theory - 1st call

3rd International Conference on Neural Field Theory
University of Reading, June 16 - 19, 2014

Organised by Stephen Coombes, Peter beim Graben, Etienne Roesch, Ingo Bojak, Roland Potthast, Kelly Sloan and Douglas Saddy

Neural Computation and Neural Field Theory is a growing and very active area of research with important applications in medicine and technology.  Activities range from the simulation of individual neurons to numerical treatment of neural field equations, from modeling and identification of cognitive and psychological processes in a neural environment to building natural or artificial devices.  The connection between models and measurement data is of growing interest to researchers, from matching data with simplified models up to solving large-scale data assimilation tasks.  The community includes researchers from medicine, psychology, physics, mathematics and engineering, where ideas from different fields lead to a truly interdisciplinary and highly catalysing environment. On this background the Reading Conferences on Neural Field Theory contribute to the further development and shaping of the community by bringing together well-known and young researchers in an inspiring mixture of tutorials, special sessions and invited talks by leaders in the field.

The 3rd International Conference on Neural Field Theory follows a highly successful series of conferences which took place in 2010 and 2012 at the University of Reading.

A provisional programme can be found at

Fee for Participants GBP 75. Lunches and Coffee will be provided. Please register before Feb 28th 2014 by email to Africa Perianez: Poster contributions welcome.

Best regards, Steve
