          Random Structures in Neuroscience and Biology

                                        Herrsching, March 26-29, 2018

This workshop brings together mathematicians working on biological applications as well as neuroscientists and biologists with interest in mathematical modelling. An emphasis is put on aspects related to network modelling in these fields.

This four-day event will build bridges between researchers from a variety of disciplines, thereby providing a platform to promote the cross-fertilization of ideas. The objectives of this workshop are two-fold:

  • Discussions on recent advances in probabilistic and statistical models in mathematical biology and computational neuroscience
  • Stimulation of mathematical research by formulating new challenges for mathematicians arising from questions in neuroscience and biology.
