NeuroMat organizes workshop on "Mathematical and Simulation Modeling in Neuroscience"

The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (RIDC NeuroMat) will host the workshop "Mathematical and Simulation Modeling in Neuroscience," to be held on November 13 and 14, in São Paulo. This event has the support of the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the University of São Paulo Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME/USP).

This event is an opportunity to discuss the research projects and to present the achievements and current results of the NeuroMat Simulation Laboratory (SimLab). It also intends to foster more interactions between NeuroMat's mathematical and computational modelers to work on the scientific direction that has oriented the RIDC team.

Markus Diesmann, professor at Forschungszentrum Jülich and member of NeuroMat's International Advisory Board, is the workshop keynote speaker. The event scientific committee includes Antonio Carlos Roque, Antonio Galves and Jorge Stolfi.

Prior registration is required for those interested in receiving a certificate of participation.
