[Comp-neuro] Second announcement: 2nd Baltic-Nordic Summer School on Neuroinformatics

2nd Baltic-Nordic Summer School on Neuroinformatics

Special theme: Integration of Multimodal, Multiscale Data into Models

Place: Tampere University of Technology, Tampere, Finland

Time: June 10-13, 2014

We invite graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and advanced
researchers in neuroscience and related fields to participate in the 2nd
Baltic-Nordic Summer School on Neuroinformatics, to be held at Tampere
University of Technology, Tampere, Finland, on June 10-13, 2014. The Summer
School is focused on computational modeling of brain functions at the
cellular, network, and cognitive levels and on new emerging multiscale
modeling techniques. Lectures also contain introductions to tools for
multiscale modeling, databases, and sharing of data, as well as examples on
how to do computational modeling of cognitive functions and neurological


The summer school will be held in Tampere, the third largest city in Finland
with over 200,000 inhabitants. Tampere is one of Finland's fastest growing
urban centers and, according to a survey, the most popular city to live and
study in. Tampere is located in southern Finland 180 km north of Helsinki.
The Summer school will be held at Tampere University of Technology, which
has strong research tradition in natural sciences, engineering, and fields
related to industry and business. Leading-edge fields include signal
processing, optics and photonics, intelligent machines, biomodelling, and
built environment.

Important dates:

- 9 March 2014: Application deadline
- 17 March 2014: Acceptance notification
- 10 - 13 June 2014: Summer school

Faculty includes:

Bruce Graham, University of Stirling, UK; Gaute Einevoll, Norwegian
University of Life Sciences, Ås, Norway; Jeanette Hellgren Kotaleski, Royal
Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden; Toomas Kirt, University of
Tartu, Tartu, Estonia; Marja-Leena Linne, Tampere University of Technology,
Tampere, Finland; Gediminas Lukšys, Basel University, Switzerland; Arnd
Roth, University College London, UK; Ausra SaudargienÄ—, Vytautas Magnus
University, Kaunas, Lithuania

Practical arrangements:

We will have a participation fee of 100 euros (guarantee of attendance; will
be paid one month before the summer school). You may ask for participation
fee waiver in your application in case you have no support to attend the
summer school. We will also be able to provide free accommodation for all
participants outside Tampere area. Each participant is expected to pay their
own travel and insurance. Please see application form for more details.

We are very much looking forward to welcome you at the 2nd Baltic-Nordic
Summer School on Neuroinformatics in Tampere, Finland!
