Matlab Neuroscience Workshop at the BIC

Thursday Sept 28, 9:30am-6:30pm

Grandpré Auditorium, Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University

Neuroscientists at all scales, from the cellular to the cognitive and behavioral, are facing increased computational demands. Join us for an overview of how today’s MATLAB can ease these challenges, with specific tools for machine learning, parallel computing, research collaborations, and more. We will also take a deeper dive into how MATLAB tools can be used to scale your applications with parallel and distributed computing and to tackle problems with Big Data. A more detailed program will follow shortly.

Speakers:

•     Jerry Brusher, Education Technical Marketing

•     Vijay Iyer, Neuroscience Community Liaison

•     Sergio Obando, Application Engineer

Registration to the event is free but mandatory:

Workshop on Nonlinear Dynamics Methods

Wednesday-Friday (9am-5pm), August 16-18

McGill University
Led by Professors Mike Richardson & Paula Silva, Center for Cognition and Action, University of Cincinnati

The Nonlinear Methods workshop will address methods of analysis from nonlinear dynamics and complexity theory and provide participants with first-hand experience in analyzing data for nonlinear structure. Methods include phase space reconstruction and recurrence quantification methods, sample entropy, and fractal methods. Participants will generate unique datasets that they learn to analyze, as well as have the opportunity to analyze data sets they bring to the workshop. Participants will leave the workshop with turn-key software for nonlinear analyses.
