Application for CAMP 2020

CAMP course deferred

We're sorry to announce that the CAMP 2020 course will be deferred by a year. The CAMP course organizers and the Simons Foundation discussed the prospects for the course, given that the COVID-19 virus outbreak is still in a rapid growth phase especially in India. We feel that in the interests of safety of all the participants and instructors, it is best to not conduct the course this year, and to announce this decision early so that your summer plans are as open as possible. We hope you are all safe and healthy and that we will get to have a great course with you next year.

Computational Approaches to Memory and Plasticity

We invite PhD students, Postdocs, and exceptional undergraduates worldwide from all backgrounds to CAMP@Bangalore . At this intensive 16-day course, students will be trained in theoretical and computational modeling, pertaining to memory and plasticity in the brain, spanning different scales of space, time and complexity. This flavor of CAMP will focus on — Hippocampus beyond Space, and Dimensionality & Manifolds . The course will have lectures, hands-on tutorials, and project work to launch students into the exciting field of computational neuroscience. We will select a total of 40 Indian and international students for this course.
