EPSRC Symposium Workshop: Dendrites, Neurones and Networks (DNN)

7-10 June 2010

The conference will bring together leading researchers in the area of theoretical neuroscience working at different scales in neural tissue. The workshop is part of a year-long symposium on the Mathematics of Complexity Science and Systems Biology, funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and held at the Mathematics Institute of the University of Warwick.

The conference registration will be from 10am-11am on Monday the 7th June with the first talk at 11am that day. The conference will close with a lunch around 1pm on Thursday the 10th June. We suggest that non-UK participants would aim to arrive on Sunday evening. UK participants may plan their arrival for Sunday evening or Monday morning. The conference itself will be at the Mathematics Institute.

The final programme and list of abstracts for the talks are now available. The current list of poster abstracts can be found here. If you would like to give a poster at the conference please contact
