Description

The Nengo Summer School is a (now yearly) event organized by the Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience at the University of Waterloo aimed at introducing participants to the Nengo neural network construction and simulation software. The main goal of the summer school is to have participants learn to build state-of-the-art neural or cognitive models using Nengo. Participants are encouraged to bring their own ideas for projects, which may focus on testing hypotheses, modelling neural or cognitive data, implementing specific behavioural functions with neurons, expanding past models, or provide a proof-of-concept of various neural mechanisms. Projects can be focused on software, hardware, or a combination of both. More information about the 2015 offering of the summer school can be found here: http://www.nengo.ca/summerschool
