4-8 July 2022 Summer School
We invite advanced master students, doctoral students, and postdoctoral researchers to participate in the BNNI 2022 to be held at Jagiellonian University in Kraków. The course is interdisciplinary and covers modeling at different levels of organization of the brain as well as elements of machine learning. The course combines lectures, tutorials and computer exercises for computational modeling and analysis of brain functions at multiple physiological and anatomical scales. The summer school will follow the series of the Baltic-Nordic Courses on Neuroinformatics ([BNNI 2013] in Kaunas, [BNNI 2014] in Tampere, [BNNI 2015] in Tartu, [BNNI 2016] in Warsaw, [BNNI 2017] in Kaunas, [BNNI 2018] in Ventspils, [BNNI 2019] in Frankfurt, BNNI 2021 online).
The target audience of the course will be advanced master students, doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers in natural science, including physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, informatics and information technology, and similar who would like to get an introduction to neuroinformatics and computational neuroscience. Advanced master students, doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers in neuroscience and psychology with strong interest in computer science, data analysis and mathematics, and some educational and/or research background in quantitative science are also encouraged to apply. The school will be in hybrid format with up to 40 in-person places.

The lectures will be held at the Faculty of Management and Social Communication and the computer classes in the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at the new The Campus of the 600th Anniversary of the Jagiellonian University Revival. The two buildings are next to each other and connected to Kraków center by multiple tram and bus lines.
In person attendance: 100 EUR; covers lunches, coffee breaks and special dinner during the school.
Online attendance: 10 EUR; covers transmission costs.
The organizers will provide teaching, meals and coffee during the course. The participants are expected to cover their travel and health insurance expenses as well as lodging. We will provide advise with inexpensive lodging for all the students.
We will award scholarships to 20 in-person participants from outside of Poland. The scholarship (over 4000 PLN before tax) comes with a fee waiver and should be enough to cover travel and lodging during the school.
The course is supported by the SPINAKER program financed by the National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) in Poland.
We are looking forward to welcome you at the BNNI 2022 in Kraków in July!
