Mathematical Neuroscience Meeting
Mar 17-19, 2008
Royal Society of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland

First announcement
This three-day conference will provide an overview of the current state of research in mathematical approaches to neuroscience, bringing together both physical and life scientists. Drawing together the field in this way will allow for a critical discussion of the relevant experimental facts and of various mathematical methods and techniques that have been successfully applied to date. Importantly, it will draw attention to, and help develop, those pieces of mathematical theory which are likely to be relevant to future studies of the brain.
The meeting will consist of invited speakers and registered participants, though will be limited to 75 people. The schedule will allow for a number of poster presentations.
Invited speakers:
Pete Ashwin (University of Exeter)
Wyeth Bair (University of Oxford)
Paul Bressloff (University of Utah)
Rodica Curtu (University of Brasov)
Brent Doiron (University of Pittsburgh)
Gaute Einevoll (Norwegian University of Life Sciences)
William Kath (Northwestern University)
David Liley (Swinburne University of Technology)
David Pinto (University of Rochester)
Mark van Rossum (University of Edinburgh)
Simon Schultz (Imperial College, London)
Piotr Suffczynski (University of Warsaw)
David Terman (University of Ohio)
Henry Tuckwell (Max Planck Institute)
Andre Longtin (University of Ottawa) TBC
The registration fee for the conference is 50.00 GBP.
A one-day training workshop for PhD students and post-docs entitled “An introduction to Mathematical Neuroscience” will also take place prior to the meeting (on 16 Mar).
Some financial assistance is available to assist graduate students who attend BOTH the training workshop and the conference.
