Neural Mass Modelling and Neural Field Theory is a growing and very active area of research with important applications in medicine and technology. Activities range from the simulation of neural populations to the analysis of neural field equations, from neural modelling of cognitive and psychological processes to controlling artificial devices. The connection between these models and measurement data, including large-scale data assimilation tasks, is of growing interest to many researchers.

The community includes researchers from medicine, psychology, physics, mathematics and engineering. The International Conferences on Neural Field Theory at the University of Reading contribute to the further development and shaping of this community by bringing together well-known and young researchers. Ideas from different fields meet here in a truly interdisciplinary and inspiring environment.

The 3rd International Conference on Neural Field Theory is following a highly successful series of conferences which took place in 2010 and 2012. Confirmed speaker for this conference so far include:
