It is our pleasure to announce the third European Computational Motor Control Summer School, which will take place at the Mas des Violettes, a very pleasant southern French countryside setting near Montpellier, from Sunday June 26th to Saturday July 2nd, 2016.
The long-term goal of this summer school is to promote the field of Computational Motor Control in Europe in general, and in France in particular
The prime target applicants are PhD students and post-doctoral fellows, but applications from junior researchers will be considered. No knowledge of computational motor control is necessary to attend. However, students are expected to know Matlab and have an adequate level in mathematics, in particular basics in linear algebra and differential equations. Some knowledge in systems neuroscience would be preferable. Each student will need to bring his/her laptop with Matlab pre-installed.
ECMC is made possible in large part by a grant from the multidisciplinary large–scale NUMEV initiative in Montpellier.
Other sponsors include the Division of Physical Therapy and Biokinesiology at the University of Southern California, and the Euromov laboratory of the University of Montpellier.
