The Third Announcement and Call for Papers
10th Tamagawa-Riken Dynamic Brain Forum-DBF'07

5-9 March 2007
Hakuba Tokyu Hotel in Hakuba Village, Nagano Prefecture, Japan

Conference Framework             
The 10th Tamagawa-Riken Dynamic Brain Forum (DBF’07) will be held on March 
5-9, 2007 at Hakuba Tokyu Hotel 
(http://www.tokyuhotels.co.jp/en/TR/TR_HAKUB/index.html) in Hakuba Village, 
Nagano Prefecture, Japan.
The Dynamic Brain Forum (DBF) is an annual international forum organized by 
the Tamagawa University
Brain Science Research Center. In 2007, the DBF will be co-sponsored by 
Riken Brain Institute,
Integrative Brain Research Project, Japanese Neural Network Society, Aihara 
Complexity Modelling Project
and by the 21st Century COE Programs in Tamagawa University, Kyushu 
Institute of Technology and Hokkaido University.

The theme of DBF'07 is Cortical Dynamics: Physiology, Theory and Applications.
The forum is organized in several sessions focused on different aspects of 
the theme, with lectures in each session
followed by a thematic discussion.
In addition, there will be poster presentations on newest results by the 
discussants and participants.
Posters will be up during first two days of meeting, allowing comprehensive 
discussions by participants.

Preceding the forum, there will also be two full days of Tutorial Programs, 
primarily oriented toward young researchers
and Ph.D. students interested in the theory and applications of various 
kinds of dynamic brain function.
Eight Tutorial presenters and topics will include,

Dr. S. Amari:             Mathematical Theories of Dynamics of Neural 
Information Processing , 
Dr. M. Kawato:          Towards manipulative neuroscience based on 
Dr. I. Tsuda:              Chaotic dynamics reality in brain dynamics,
Dr. K. Doya:             Neural implementation of reinforcement learning,
Dr. W. Freeman:       Recent advances in high-resolution analysis of EEG and MEG,
Dr. A. Aertsen:          Cortical Network Dynamics - Precision in a Noisy 
Environment ?
Dr. G. L. Gerstein      Coding dynamics -- (a) repeating firing patterns, 
(b) firing irregularity,
Dr. M. Abeles            Brain structure and neural-network architecture,

And, Ten Guest speakers are scheduled to talk:
Dr. A.Treves,
Dr. N. Kasabov,
Dr. W. Schultz,
Dr. D. Lee,
Dr. M. Fee,
Dr. P. Cisek.
