Description:
The School on Complex Networks and Applications to Neurosciences will cover theoretical aspects and current trends in the Theory of Complex Networks including their structural properties, dynamical processes, and multiplex networks with applications to social, technological and biological systems. The second half of the school will provide a detailed course on Neurosciences focused on the physiology of the cell and neuronal models, time series analysis and characterization, complex brain networks, collective phenomena and information processing in the brain, and neuroimage techniques and mental diseases. There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for local and travel support of participants.

This school is part of the topics in Nonlinear Science: Fundamentals and Applications.

Application deadline: July 24, 2015
