Big Success! Computational Neurology 2017

Computational Neurology 2017 gathers researchers and professionals from computing and neuroscience.

Computational Neurology 2017 has gathered researchers and professionals interested in applying the advances in computing and neuroscience to the clinical field for the benefit of patients. The conference comprised of keynote speakers and abstract/poster expositions over two days. It was held at Newcastle University Research Beehive with the support of the School of Computing Science, the Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex BioSystems (ICOS) research group, the Faculty of Medical Sciences, the Institute of Neuroscience (ION), and the Wellcome Trust. We had over 100 attendees in total coming from across the globe, 17 speakers, and over 20 poster presentations. It was a huge success among all the attendees, and the event also helped to promote Newcastle University and the interdisciplinary research on computational neurology that we do here. The event was organised by early career researchers from the School of Computing Science (Dr. Yujiang Wang), the Institute of Neuroscience (Dr. Anupam Hazra, Dr. Luis Peraza, Dr. Roman Bauer, and Dr. Peter Taylor - speaker in photo).
