CNS*2016 Workshop

Connectome: Structure and Large-Scale Dynamics

Studies of the connectome are re-shaping the field of neuroscience. Networks have become a ubiquitous language. This is certainly reflected in computational neuroscience, where more and more groups are addressing problems at the large scale. However, the number of open questions is growing rapidly, so it is timely for computational neuroscientists to both direct our attention to the most important issues, and to grow capacity to take advantage of the opportunities that are unfolding. The workshop will present and highlight some of the important recent contributions on the structure of the connectome and the large-scale dynamics that it supports. We expect to have two round table sessions (closing the morning and the afternoon sessions) in which discussion will take place with the specific aim of exposing and highlighting the main issues and the interfaces where quantitative skills (abundant among computational neuroscientists) can be successfully applied to address exceptional emerging problems.

This will be a one day workshop taking place on either the 6th or 7th of July 2016.

Jeju Island, South Korea.

Workshop forms part of the 25th Annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting CNS 2016.
