Virtual Summer School: Neuronal Dynamics for Embodied Cognition 2021
Our annual summer school gives students an in-depth look at dynamic field theory over the course of a single week. The summer school covers everything from the basics of dynamic field theory up to our latest research projects.
This virtual edition of our summer school will consist of two parts: A live-lecture series and a hands-on workshop.
The lecture series will be held as a video conference and provides a step-by-step introduction to Dynamic Field Theory. It is open to everyone; you only have to register with your email address. Lectures will take place from September 6 to September 10 between 3:00 and 6:00 pm (UTC +2).
The two-and-a-half-day project workshop gives students the opportunity to put the newly acquired skills to use in a concrete hands-on modeling project. Students solve the task in our open-source simulation environment under the guidance of a personal tutor. The one-on-one tutoring limits the number of participants who can take part in the workshop. To apply, please fill out the online application form, which asks for a cover letter and a CV as well as some other information that we use to prepare projects for you. We encourage workshop applications by small groups of participants, maybe two or three colleagues who will work together locally on the same project and may share a tutor. All participants of such a group should apply separately and list their potential group partners in the application form. The workshop will take place September 9-11. Personal tutoring via video conference will be available on each workshop day at flexible hours.
Participation in any part of the school is free of charge.
