The interest in neuronal networks is growing exponentially. Research turns out to be especially successful where borders between classical fields of sciences are crossed.
The BRANDY summer school is supposed to stimulate this multi-disciplinary approach by bringing together international students, young researchers, and experts with distinct scientific backgrounds, all sharing an interest in neuronal network dynamics.
To support an exchange between scientists with different backgrounds, tutorials will introduce the distinct scientific fields, models, and methods. Introductions will be complemented by reviews on the state-of-the-art in specific research topics and by reports on latest advances.
Young international scientists (Master's students to Junior postdocs) from Neurosciences, Biology, Computer Sciences, Engineering, Physics, or related fields.
The summer school will be held at the Al Convento hotel in Terzolas, Val di Sole (TN).
Terzolas is a little village in a beautiful valley called Val di Sole, located at 755 meters on sea level, 60 km from Trento in the north of Italy.
The hotel is an old monastery, it offers single, double, and triple rooms. Besides the meeting room it has a library and a large garden. Meals will be served in the old refectory.
Airports closest to Trento are Verona (1:30 h bus+train), Bologna (2:30 h bus+train), Venice (3:00 bus+train), Milano (3:30 bus+train).
In Trento you need to change train station walking north for 200m. From the Trento - Malè - Mezzana station, you take a local train towards Malè/Mezzana getting off at Terzolas (1:30h, Attention, you have to push a button to request a stop, the station before is Caldes). For further information see the the train timetable.
The hotel is easy to reach, walking 800m from the train station (see map). A shuttle service from Terzolas can be arranged if required.
