This year for the second time the Advanced Course in Computational Neuroscience (ACCN) will be held at the Mathematical Research and Conference Center (MRCC) of the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in the village Bedlewo in Poland.
The ACCN is for advanced graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are interested in learning the essentials of the field of computational neuroscience.
The course has two complementary parts. Mornings are devoted to lectures given by distinguished international faculty on topics across the breadth of experimental and computational neuroscience. During the rest of the day, students pursue a project of their choosing under the close supervision of expert tutors. This gives them practical training in the art and practice of neural modeling.
The first week of the course introduces students to essential neurobiological concepts and to the most important techniques in modeling single cells, synapses and circuits. Students learn how to solve their research problems using software such as MATLAB, NEST, NEURON, Python, XPP, etc. During the following three weeks the lectures cover networks and specific neural systems and functions. Topics range from modeling single cells and subcellular processes through the simulation of simple circuits, large neuronal networks and system level models of the brain. The course ends with project presentations by the students.
The course is designed for students from a variety of disciplines, including neuroscience, physics, electrical engineering, computer science, mathematics and psychology. Students are expected to have a keen interest and basic background in neurobiology as well as some computer experience. Students of any nationality can apply.
* Course size: thirty students.
* Fee (which covers lodging, meals and excursions): EUR 1500.
* Scholarships and travel stipends are available.
* Application start: January 9, 2012
* Application deadline: April 2, 2012
* Deadline for letters of recommendation: April 9, 2012
* Notification of results: May, 2012
