Two decades into the 21st century, can we claim to be any closer to a unified model of the brain? In this exploratory symposium, we invite submissions for short talks and posters presenting general mathematical models of brain function. We give priority to those models that can account for brain or behavioural data, or provide simulations to that effect. This year’s theme is life-long learning and discovery.

The symposium will be held in partnership with the applied mathematics conference ICNAAM 2022, to be held on the island of Crete, Greece from the 19-25th of September 2022. See
