We are pleased to confirm the programme for the Mathematics in Life Sciences (MiLS) meeting on Advances in Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience, which will take place on 15th December 2022 at the University of Nottingham (University Park Campus).

The talks will be held in Physics lecture room C27, lunch and posters will be in the atrium of the School of Mathematical Sciences.  The Physics Building is number 22 and Mathematical Sciences is number 20 on this map. Directions to the University Park Campus (including cycling facilities, bicycle routes, bus and tram lines) can be found here.

Attendance to the meeting is free of charge, but we kindly ask you to register your intention to attend by completing the registration form. Contributions of posters are still being accepted and can be made through the registration form or by email to Rachel Nicks.

We look forward to welcoming you in Nottingham.
