4th International Conference on Neural Field Theory (ICNFT)


Held on the 3-5th July, the 4th International Conference on Neural Field Theory follows a highly successful series of conferences which took place in 2010, 2012, and 2014 at the University of Reading.

Neural Mass Modelling and Neural Field Theory is a growing and very active area of research with important applications in medicine and technology. Activities range from the simulation of neural populations to the analysis of neural field equations, from neural modelling of cognitive and psychological processes to controlling artificial devices.

The connection between models and measurement data, including large-scale data assimilation tasks, is of high interest to many researchers and a key challenge to move into real-world applications. The integration of models with data assimilation is a core milestone of systems to achieve a high-quality forecast skill.

The 4th ICNFT includes a tutorial afternoon with introduction to theory and practice of data assimilation by leading experts in the field. The community includes researchers from medicine, psychology, physics, mathematics and engineering.

The International Conferences on Neural Field Theory at the University of Reading contribute to the further development and shaping of this community by bringing together well-known and young researchers. Ideas from different fields meet here in a truly interdisciplinary and inspiring environment.
