NEURON 2014 summer course

What: NEURON 2014 Summer Course

http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/static/courses/nscsd2014/nscsd2014.html

When:

NEURON Fundamentals – Saturday, June 21 – Tuesday, June 24
Parallel Simulation with NEURON – Wednesday, June 25 – Thursday, June 26

Where: The Institute for Neural Computation at the University of California, San Diego, CA

Organizers: N.T. Carnevale and M.L. Hines

Faculty: N.T. Carnevale, M.L. Hines, W.W. Lytton, and T.J. Sejnowski

Description:

This is an intensive multi-day course that combines lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises to cover the principles and practice of designing, constructing, and using models in the NEURON simulation environment. It is most suitable for investigators who are concerned with models of biological neurons and neural networks that are closely linked to empirical observations, e.g. experimentalists who wish to incorporate modeling in their research plans, and theoreticians who are interested in the principles of biological computation.

This year's course has two components. NEURON Fundamentals (Saturday, June 21 - Tuesday, June 24) is suitable for users at all levels of expertise. It addresses all aspects of using NEURON to model individual neurons, and also introduces parallel simulation and the fundamentals of modeling networks.

  • Beginners with little or no modeling experience will learn not only the technical aspects of modeling but also its philosophical basis and scientific rationale.
  • Intermediate users will learn how best to approach common tasks, and under what circumstances special features of NEURON might be particularly helpful.
  • Experienced users will benefit from an update on new features and a review of important topics that may have escaped their attention when they first learned how to use NEURON.

Parallel Simulation with NEURON (Wednesday, June 25 - Thursday, June 26) is intended for users who already have some expertise with NEURON and are particularly interested in adapting existing models or creating new models that can be simulated on parallel hardware. Particular attention will be paid to strategies for debugging and measuring and improving performance. Registration is limited to 20, and the deadline for receipt of applications is Friday, May 30, 2014. San Diego locals are entitled to discounted registration fees of $450 for "NEURON Fundamentals," $400 for "Parallel Simulation with NEURON", and $800 for both. Each participant is expected to bring a wifi-capable laptop computer. This will allow everyone to work in a familiar hardware/software environment, be it MSWin or Linux on a PC, or OS X on a Mac.

NEURON 2013 summer course

What: "The NEURON Simulation Environment" (NEURON 2013 Summer Course)
http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/static/courses/nscsd2013/nscsd2013.html

When: 9 AM Saturday, June 22, through noon Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Where: The Institute for Neural Computation at the University of California, San Diego, CA

Organizers: N.T. Carnevale and M.L. Hines

Description:

In three and a half days of intensive lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises, this course will cover the principles and practice of the design, construction, and use of models in the NEURON simulation environment. It is designed primarily for those who are concerned with models of biological neurons and neural networks that are closely linked to empirical observations, e.g. experimentalists who wish to incorporate modeling in their research plans, and theoreticians who are interested in the principles of biological computation. The course will be useful and informative for registrants at all levels of experience, from those who are just beginning to those who are already quite familiar with NEURON or other simulation tools.

Registration is limited to 20, and the deadline for receipt of applications is Friday, May 24, 2013.

The discounted early registration fee is $380 for locals registering by 5 PM EDT (New York time), Friday, April 12, 2013

NEURON 2012 summer course

"The NEURON Simulation Environment" (NEURON 2012 Summer Course)
An intensive hands-on course

http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/static/courses/nscsd2012/nscsd2012.html

 

Starts: June 23, 2012
Ends: June 27, 2012
Location: Institute for Neural Computation (Map) University of California, San Diego

Organizers: N.T. Carnevale and M.L. Hines

In five days of intensive lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises, this course will cover the principles and practice of the design, construction, and use of models in the NEURON simulation environment. It is designed primarily for those who are concerned with models of biological neurons and neural networks that are closely linked to empirical observations, e.g. experimentalists who wish to incorporate modeling in their research plans, and theoreticians who are interested in the principles of biological computation. The course will be useful and informative for registrants at all levels of experience, from those who are just beginning to those who are already quite familiar with NEURON or other simulation tools.

 

Registration is limited to 20, and the deadline for receipt of applications is Friday, May 18, 2012.

 

Note: the registration fee for San Diego "locals," who don't need the room and board package, is $500. This covers all handout materials, lunches, and coffee breaks.
