premii Ad Astra

Asociația Ad Astra anunță lansarea proiectului Premiilor Ad Astra 2022 (link aici), care își propune identificarea și popularizarea modelelor de succes, a rezultatelor excepționale ale cercetătorilor români din țară și din afara ei. Regulamentul de participare se poate gasi aici, iar  pagina de inscriere se poate accesa aici.

Asociatia Ad Astra a cercetatorilor romani lanseaza BAZA DE DATE A CERCETATORILOR ROMANI DIN DIASPORA. Scopul acestei baze de date este aceea de a stimula colaborarea dintre cercetatorii romani de peste hotare dar si cu cercetatorii din Romania. Cercetatorii care doresc sa fie nominalizati in aceasta baza de date sunt rugati sa trimita un email la

Summer course: Computational Neuroscience: Vision, Cold Spring Harbor, 13-26 June 2002, limited amount of partial financial assistance

Computational modeling and simulation have produced important advances in our understanding of neural processing. This intensive 2-week summer course, held at the Banbury Center of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory , focuses on areas of visual science in which interactions among psychophysics, neurophysiology, and computation have been especially fruitful. The course combines lectures (generally two 3-hour sessions each day) with hands-on problem solving using the MatLab programming environment in a computer laboratory.

Topics to be covered this year include: neural representation and coding; photon detection and the neural basis of color vision, pattern vision, and visual motion perception; oculomotor function; object/shape representation; visual attention and decision-making. A preliminary lecture schedule is currently available. Participants are also encouraged to present a course project, implementing a computational model of some aspect of vision.

We will accept 24 students (a mixture of PhD students and postdocs). Students should have experience in neurobiological and/or computational approaches to visual processing. Some computer programming experience is required. A limited amount of partial financial assistance is available on a needs basis.

An application for admission is available online. The application deadline is 15 March 2002.
