The University of Reading's Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics is hosting the second Neural Fields Conference. Prof Stephen Coombes is a member of the Scientific Committee.

Neural Computation and Neural Field Theory is a growing and very active area of research with important applications in medicine and technology. Activities range from numerical simulation of large-scale discretised neural fields to analytical treatment of neural field equations by means of functional analysis, from modeling and identification of cognitive and psychological processes in a neural environment to building natural or artificial devices. The community includes researchers from medicine, psychology, physics, mathematics and engineering, where ideas from different fields lead to a truly interdisciplinary and highly catalyzing environment. On this background the Reading Conferences on Neural Field Theory contribute to the further development and shaping of the community by bringing together well-known and young researchers in an inspiring mixture of tutorials, special sessions and invited talks by leaders in the field.

Attendance is free but registration is required.
