THE NEURON SIMULATION ENVIRONMENT
Location: University of Minnesota, Minneapolis
Dates: Monday, June 10, through Saturday, June 15, 2019
Faculty: Ted Carnevale, Robert McDougal, Michael Hines, and Bill Lytton
Application deadline: Friday, May 31, 2019
This intensive multi-day course is designed for
those who are planning to use NEURON in neuroscience research or teaching,
or already have active modeling projects that involve NEURON.
It is suitable for users at all levels of expertise,
presenting what you need to know to build and work with models of individual neurons
and networks of neurons, and includes an introduction to simulation on parallel hardware.
- Beginners with little or no modeling experience will learn not only the
technical aspects of modeling but also its philosophical basis and scientific rationale.
- Intermediate users will learn the best approaches to common tasks, and how to use special features of NEURON in their own work.
- Experienced users will benefit from an update on new features and a review
of important topics that may have escaped their attention when they first
started using NEURON.
Each day of this 6 day course will run from 9 AM to 5 PM,
with lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises.
Every afternoon includes a block of free time in which
participants may work on exercises or projects of their own choosing,
with expert help near at hand,
and at the end of each day there will be a wrapup sesssion.
There will also be two or three optional evening sessions to address
topics of special interest that may arise during the daytime sessions.
Space is limited, and applications will be considered in the order received.
The application deadline is Friday, May 31, 2019.
All registration fees will be due by that date.
No applications will be accepted after that date,
and there will be no on-site registration.
