The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis
(NIMBioS) is now accepting applications for its Investigative Workshop,
"Neurobiology of Expertise," to be held March 11-13, 2015, at NIMBioS.

*Objectives: *Network sciences and complex systems theory provide
exemplar mathematical formalisms to approach the analysis of multimodal
and highly complicated neuroscience datasets. This investigative
workshop aims to synthesize these and other state of the art
applications of mathematics in order to systematize and unify
multidisciplinary and multiscale work on expert human performance. The
workshop will bring together researchers from multiple disciplines in
order to better understand the existing mathematical challenges and
explore new directions in modeling genomic to behavioral signatures of
performance in humans and animal models for perceptual, motor and
analytical expertise domains. Workshop goals are to identify challenges
and frontiers in mechanistic modeling, prediction, signal processing and
machine learning as well as novel neurotechnologies for data acquisition
in order to facilitate uncovering the underlying neural mechanisms of
expertise. This investigative workshop will bring together top
researchers from diverse fields to share insights and methods and
address long-standing and emerging conceptual problems.

*Location: *NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville

*Co-Organizers: *Frederick Gregory
<http://www.arl.army.mil/www/default.cfm?page=181> (Neurophysiology of
Cognition, U.S. Army Research Office) and Virginia Pasour
<http://www.arl.army.mil/www/default.cfm?page=185> (Biomathematics, U.S.
Army Research Office)

For more information about the workshop and a link to the online
application form, go to http://www.nimbios.org/workshops/WS_expertise

Participation in the workshop is by application only. Individuals with a
strong interest in the topic are encouraged to apply, and successful
applicants will be notified within two weeks of the application
deadline. If needed, financial support for travel, meals, and lodging is
available for workshop attendees.

*Application deadline:* December 15, 2014

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis
(NIMBioS) (http://www.nimbios.org) brings together researchers from
around the world to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to
investigate solutions to basic and applied problems in the life
sciences. NIMBioS is sponsored by the National Science Foundation with
additional support from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
