We will host Brain Modes 2012: Large-scale models of the brain on 3-4 December at QIMR in Brisbane. This is an annual meeting which seeks to explore innovative means of understanding complex brain activity and multimodal neuroscience data sets. The meeting fosters informal discussion of brain modelling and multivariate data analysis (EEG, MEG, fMRI, etc). Previous meetings have been held in Berlin, Amsterdam, Bristol, Copenhagen and Marseilles.

This year's meeting will focus on "Computational Models of the Brain", ranging from basic theory to model inversion and parameter estimation. This workshop will be held immediately following the 3rd Australasian Cognitive Neuroscience Conference (ACNS). The sessions of this year's meeting shall be:

Theoretical advances in large-scale brain models
Simulation platforms for brain models
Model inversion, parameter estimation and model-driven data fusion
Large-scale models of brain pathology
Brain networks, complexity and dynamics

Confirmed overseas speakers are Viktor Jirsa (Marseilles), Petra Ritter (Berlin), John Terry (Exeter), Andreas Daffertshofer
(Amsterdam) and Carlo Laing (New Zealand).

Organised by Tjeerd Boonstra (UNSW) and Michael Breakspear (QIMR).

Registration is $120 per person for both days and includes morning and afternoon coffee breaks. A special rate of $80 is available for students.
