We invite advanced master students, doctoral students, and postdoctoral researchers to participate in the BNNI 2017 to be held at the Neuroscience Institute, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, Kaunas, Lithuania.

The course is interdisciplinary and covers modeling at different levels of organization of the brain, focusing on neurological and psychiatric disorders. The course combines lectures, tutorials and computer exercises. This school is the fifth in the series of the Baltic-Nordic Courses on Neuroinformatics (BNNI 2013 in Kaunas, Lithuania; BNNI 2014 in Tampere, Finland; BNNI 2015 in Tartu, Estonia; BNNI in Warsaw 2016, Poland).

The target audience of the course will be advanced master students, doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers in biomedical and technology sciences, from medicine, biology, psychology, to mathematics, informatics, information technology, physics, chemistry, who would like to get an introduction to neuroinformatics and computational neuroscience. Some experience with programming and quantitative reasoning as well as strong interest in computational and mathematical modeling of the brain will be desirable but not necessary to benefit from the school. Last year we had participants from 14 countries all over the world!

Faculty includes:
Marja-Leena Linne, Tampere University of Technology, Finland
Bruce Graham, University of Stirling, UK
Daniel Wojcik, Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, Warsaw, Poland
Arnd Roth, University College London, UK
Peter Jedlicka, NeuroScience Center, Goethe-University, Frankfurt, Germany
Tuomo Mäki-Marttunen, Simula Research Laboratory, Oslo, Norway
Rima Naginiene, Neuroscience Institute, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, Kaunas, Lithuania
Andrius Radziunas, Department of Neurosurgery, Medical Academy, and Neuroscience Institute, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, Kaunas, Lithuania
Ausra Saudargiene, Neuroscience Institute, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, and Vytautas Magnus University, Kaunas, Lithuania
and others.

The lectures will be held at the Neuroscience Institute, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, Eivenių str. 4, Kaunas, Lithuania

Practical arrangements:
There is a small tuition fee of 50 euros. The organizers will provide teaching materials, meals  and coffee during the course. The participants are expected to cover their travel and health insurance expenses as well as lodging.

The course is supported by the Research Council of Lithuania and Lithuanian University of Health Sciences.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the BNNI 2017 in Kaunas, Lithuania!
