The Power of Mathematics in Contemporary Neuroscience

We are happy to announce the 6th edition of the French Israeli Neuroscience Conference (FINC) that will take place between 11-15 July 2016, in Marseille at the International Center for Meetings in Mathematics, which is sponsoring the event.

Over the past decade, technological advances across several disciplines have dramatically expanded the frontiers of experimentally accessible questions in neuroscience. Current experimental approaches produce a tremendous amount of data, on a broad spectrum of temporal and spatial scales, providing finer and more quantitative descriptions of the biological reality than we only dared to dream about just a decade ago. We believe that making sense of these data necessitates guidance through a parallel revolution in theoretical neuroscience. The goal of FINC2016 is to contribute to this challenge by bringing together French and Israeli neuroscientists who will paint the current status of theoretical and experimental neuroscience and identify what is needed to move forward.

The 5-day conference will review a ‘hot’ topics (detailed in the program) in 8 half-day thematic sessions each dedicated to specific scientific questions from the experimental and the theoretical standpoint.

Registration is free (but meals are not) and will be done ona first-come first-served basis due to space limitation.
