This symposium, hosted by the EPFL Brain Mind Institute, will take place at the ROLEX Learning Center on the EPFL campus in Lausanne on September 4th and 5th 2017. Recent studies have implicated the interconnectedness of neurons within circuits as a critical factor in selective vulnerability to neurodegenerative disease. In this 2-day program leaders from ...

18 - 19.09.2017 Lausanne, SwissTech Convention Center & 20.09.2017 Geneva, Campus Biotech Neuromodulators – the master switches – dynamically reconfigure neural microcircuits and shape brain states by controlling the function of neurons and glia, dendrites, and synapses. Recently, the Blue Brain Project discovered that neocortical microcircuit activity shifts from synchronous to asynchronous network states that ...

Imaging the human retina in-vivo with high resolution of enormous interest not only in ophthalmology but also in neurology. As the retina can be seen as extension of the brain's neural tissue, it is straightforward to assume that the retina is equally affected by neurodegenerative diseases- casting the phrase of “the eye as window to ...

Cloud radio access network (C-RAN) architectures in which the processing/decoding is migrated from the local base-stations/radio units (RUs) to a control/central units (CU) in the "cloud" offer a variety of advantages to cellular and wireless networks in general. Fog radio access networks (F-RAN) address the case where the RUs are enhanced by having the ability ...

EDIC candidacy exam Exam president: Prof. Volkan Cevher Thesis advisor: Prof. Martin Jaggi Co-examiner: Prof. Daniel Kuhn Abstract Coordinate descent algorithms are the workhorse of convex optimization in practice since they are easy to implement, fast, and hard to beat. We want to design even faster coordinate descent algorithms which take geometry, communication costs etc. ... Read more about "Coordinate descent algorithms for convex optimization"
