The 28th International Symposium of the Groupe de recherche
sur le système nerveux central et le Centre de recherche en sciences
neurologiques will be held on May 8-9, 2006, at the University of
Montréal. The objectives of this symposium are to illustrate the
power and utility of computational approaches to address fundamental
issues of brain function from the level of single cells to that of large
systems, as well as to discuss how computational and more traditional

physiological methods complement one another. The symposium will
include presentations on computational models of sensory and motor
systems, learning processes, and information coding.
 
Registration is now open. Please visit http://www.grsnc.umontreal.ca/XXVIIIs/

Submissions are invited for a limited number of poster presentations.
Authors of select posters will be invited to contribute a short chapter to
a special issue of the book series Progress in Brain Research.

Deadline for poster submissions: Friday, March 31, 2006.
