Workshop Summary
The Workshop starts with Registration (between 08.30 and 08.55) on Friday 21 July and finishes in the afternoon of Saturday 22 July. It will be held in the Raeburn Room, Old College, University of Edinburgh, South Bridge.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together mathematical modellers and key experimenters in the field of neural development and learning with the objective of:
  • Exposing new experimental areas that would benefit from mathematical methods;
  • Identifying innovative applications of mathematics to modelling problems; and
  • Mapping new frontiers of research.
The workshop will consist of around twelve 35-minute talks (plus 10-minutes for discussion) and two longer discussion sessions. See Scientific Programme and Participants for further details.

The meeting is limited in numbers in order to maintain its workshop character. Applications have now closed.
