[Comp-neuro] Feb 15th Application Deadline: Nengo Summer School on Large-Scale Brain Modelling

Hi everyone,
One final reminder to apply to the 2014 Nengo Summer School by Feb. 15th. The school will run from June 8th to June 21st in Waterloo, Ontario. Details below:

The Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience at the University of Waterloo is inviting applications for an in-depth, two week summer school that will teach participants how to use the Neural Engineering Framework and the Nengo simulation package to build state-of-the-art cognitive and neural models. Nengo has been used to build what is currently the world's largest functional brain model, Spaun, and provides users with a versatile and powerful environment for simulating cognitive and neural systems. We welcome applications from all interested graduate students, research associates, postdocs, professors, and industry professionals. No specific training in the use of modelling software is required, but we encourage applications from active researchers with a relevant background in psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, neuromorphic engineering, robotics, or a related field. More information about Nengo, the Neural Engineering Framework, and Spaun can be found at
