The final program is available


The summer school will be dedicated to young researchers (inculding PhD students) with a background in one of the three main topics of the school: brain connectivity, statistical modeling for complex networks, and/or information measurements. The school will provide lectures with scientific experts in neuroscience, physics, and mathematics. The interdisciplinary nature of this summer school is a unique opportunity to gather together experts in theory and modelling to facilitate the contacts between students and experts of such various fields. Within this summer school, the students will have the opportunity to attend lectures outside their main background which rarely the case inside the universities.
