Satellite Event ONLINE

We are happy to announce the following satellite workshop

 Exact mean field formulation of complex (neural) networks
 to be held online on December 9th, 2020
within the CCS2020: The Conference on Complex Systems 2020


 The brain activity is the paradigmatic example of the dynamics of an
extremely complex network of networks,
where large heterogeneous neural populations interact over different
time and spatial scales.
A first step in the simplification of this dynamics amounts to
reproducing the neural population dynamics at a mean field
level and this has led to the development of neural mass and neural
field models of increasing complexity.
Recent advances on coupled phase oscillators have allowed to reduce
the evolution of in-principle infinite dimensional systems
to the dynamics of a few macroscopic variables. This exact reduction
methodology has been recently applied to neural spiking networks
leading to the development of an extremely active research field
aiming to develop a new generation of neural mass models.

Invited Speakers: Aine Byrne, Carlo Laing , Denis Goldobin, Matteo di
Volo, Halgurd Taher, Diego Pazo',
Tilo Schwalger, Serhiy Yanchuk, Francesco Marino, Erik A. Martens

The meeting is open to all the interested PhD students and
researchers, however registration
to the workshop and/or conference is mandatory (fees range from 20
euros to 180 euros).

Early-bird registration is possible within November, 16th 2020 at this link:
