Bernstein Conference on Computational Neuroscience

The Bernstein Conference is the largest annual Computational Neuroscience conference in this inderdisciplinary field of research. This year many acclaimed international speakers will come to Berlin.

Prof. Dr. Susanne Schreiber (HU Berlin), organizer of the conference, is pleased that so many acclaimed international researchers with backgrounds in experimental and/ or theoretical neuroscience have accepted the invitation to Berlin. This year’s speakers are Eve Marder (USA), Matthias Bethge (Germany), Dora Angelaki (USA), Matthew Botvinick (USA), Claudia Clopath (UK), Nicolas Brunel (USA), Hopi Hoekstra (USA), Gilles Laurent (Germany), Haim Sompolinsky (USA/ Israel), Gašper Tkačik (Austria) and Nachum Ulanovsky (Israel). Their talks will reveal how closely theory and experiment are intertwined on the way to understanding the functionality of the brain.

In the many subdisciplines of neuroscience, computational neuroscience is a bridge discipline connecting experimentally and theoretically working researchers. In the days of "big data" and artificial intelligence (AI), this interdisciplinary focus is highly relevant for the neurosciences and many other related disciplines.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
