  • Computational models in basic and clinical neuroscience
  • Computational models in neuroimaging physics and signal processing
  • Ethical implications of computational models in neuroscience

We will also offer small group workshops. In addition, participants are invited to present their current work in form of a poster. All posters will be shared in interactive online poster sessions with other students and the poster judges. The summer school committee will award a poster prize to the best poster. Posters can present either a complete study OR a plan for a proposed study.

Due to the pandemic situation and the difficulty related to planning large events, the organization committee decided to offer the possibility of on-site participation for PhD students of IMPRS NeuroCom only. In addition, a limited number of external participants is invited to join the summer school virtually.

External students interested in participating, are invited to submit a short statement of their motivation to attend the summer school, including a statement of diversity. Furthermore, external applicants are required to upload a pdf-document with their curriculum vitae. Selection of suitable participants will be based on scientific as well as diversity criteria.
