                       ~ Call for Symposium Proposals ~
        2ND ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTATIONAL COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE
                            www.ccnconference.org

To be held in conjunction with the 2006 PSYCHONOMIC SOCIETY CONFERENCE,
November 16-19, 2006 at the Hilton Americas hotel in Houston, TX.

The inaugural CCNC 2005 meeting held prior to Society for Neuroscience (SFN)
in Washington, DC was a great success, with approximately 250 attendees, 60
presented posters, and strongly positive reviews.  In subsequent years, it
will be held on a rotating basis with other meetings, such as (tentative
list): CNS (Cognitive Neuroscience Society), HBM (Organization for Human Brain
Mapping), CogSci (Cognitive Science Society), (SFN) Society for Neuroscience,
NIPS (Neural Information Processing Systems), and COSYNE (Computational and
Systems Neuroscience).

* DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF SYMPOSIUM PROPOSALS: May 1, 2006 

* DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS: TBA

* CONFERENCE DATES: Wed-Thu November 15 & 16, 2006

* This year's featured Keynote Speakers (confirmed):
        Mike Kahana, University of Pennsylvania
        Mark Seidenberg, University of Wisconsin Madison

Each 2 hour symposium should be discussion oriented and include a mixture of
modelers and non-modelers, all focused on a common theme or issue.  At least
half of the talks should focus on specific results from implemented models.  A
moderator acts as overall organizer/coordinator, and may also participate as
one of 4-5 discussants.  Each discussant should present a brief 20-30 minute
talk, followed by plenty of time for discussion/Q & A.

No particular proposal format is required. A 1-2 page description, including
potential participants, is sufficient.  Send by email (plain text preferred)
to the Executive Organizer: Thomas Hazy <thazy at colorado.edu>.  Questions
regarding potential proposals are welcomed.
