Tutorials

Tutorials will be held at the main venue on July 9. The goal of the tutorials is to provide background on some theoretical subject that are relevant for the main meeting. There will be four tutorials of about 1.5 hours each, with enough time for questions and discussions. In the evening of the tutorials we will hold a social gathering for participants.

The tentative subjects are:

  • Dynamics in networks with excitatory and inhibitory balance (Farzad Farkhooi)
  • Training recurrent networks (Rainer Engelken)
  • Information theory: Basic concepts, unbiased estimators, recent developments (Viola Priesemann)
  • Encoding low-dimensional dynamics in large recurrent neural networks (Jonathan Kadmon)
