4th International Conference on Neural Field Theory (ICNFT)
- The Interplay of Models and Data Assimilation

web page: http://www.inverseproblems.info/icnft2017


July 3-5, 2017, University of Reading, United Kingdom.


Neural Mass Modelling and Neural Field Theory is a growing and very active area 
of research with important applications in medicine and technology. Activities 
range from the simulation of neural populations to the analysis of neural field 
equations, from neural modelling of cognitive and psychological processes to 
controlling artificial devices.

The connection between these models and measurement data, including large-scale 
data assimilation tasks, is of high interest to many researchers and a key challenge 
to move into real-world applications. The integration of models with data assimilation 
is a core milestone of systems to achieve a high-quality forecast skill. 
The 4th ICNFT includes a tutorial afternoon with introduction to theory and practice 
of data assimilation by leading experts in the field.

Confirmed keynote speakers:
John Spencer, East Anglia U 
Wilhelm Stannert, TU Berlin 
Timothy Sauer, George Mason University 
Rosalyn Moran, U Bristol 
David Grayden, U Melbourne 

Tutorial speakers:
Stephen Coombes, University of Nottingham 
Ingo Bojak, University of Reading
Roland Potthast, DWD/University of Reading 
Axel Hutt, DWD/University of Reading 

Contributed talks are welcome, please see we page
