The fast advancements in neuroscience and the multitude of newly developed neuron models require a language to describe neurons by means of equations and state transitions. The capability of implementing new models in precise agreement with their mathematical definition and subsequently running computationally efficient simulations is essential for progress on the theoretical foundation of neuroscience. The use of abstract modelling languages like NESTML enables neuroscientists to formally specify their models and to automatically produce high level simulation code that runs efficiently on various computer architectures. The workshop provides students with concepts and hands on experience in this language to facilitate a seamless workflow between theory and simulation.

Inga Blundell received her M. Sc. from the RWTH University in Aachen (Germany) in 2014. Since then she is a Doctoral researcher at the Forschungszentrum Jülich. She works on the development of automatic evolution method selection schemes for differential equations used in spiking neuron models. Her main interest is in the numerical characterization of differential equations in neuron models.


Only participants who registered for the Conference are eligible to attend the workshops.

​Registration for workshop will be opened in September.
