                       ~ Call for Symposium Proposals ~
      3RD ANNUAL COMPUTATIONAL COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE CONFERENCE (CCNC)
                        to be held in conjunction with
                          DYNAMICAL NEUROSCIENCE XV

                            www.ccnconference.org

The 2007 CCNC planning committee is pleased to announce a call for symposium
proposals for the 3rd Annual CCNC, which is planned as a satellite in
conjunction with Dynamical Neuroscience XV prior to 2007 SOCIETY FOR
NEUROSCIENCE CONFERENCE (November 3-7, 2007) in San Diego. CCNC will be
Thu-Fri November 1 & 2. There will be 3-4 symposia chosen for this year's
program.

The inaugural CCNC 2005 meeting was also held in conjunction with Dynamical
Neuroscience (XIII) prior to SOCIETY FOR NEUROSCIENCE (SfN) in Washington, DC
and was a great success, as was last year's meeting in conjunction with
PSYCHONOMICS in Houston.

Also, please look for the Call-for-Abstracts for poster/contributed talk
submissions in approximately mid-to-late April.

* DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF SYMPOSIUM PROPOSALS: May 1, 2007

* DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS: TBA, early summer

* CONFERENCE DATES: Thu-Fri November 1 & 2, 2007

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.

Symposium topics in years past have included:

2006 ( more info at: http://ccnconference.org/page2.html ): 
* Face/Object Recognition - Are Faces Special, or Just a Special Case?
* Semantics - Development and Brain Organization of Conceptual
Knowledge
* Emergent Cognitive Control - Computational and Empirical
Investigations

2005 ( http://ccnconference.org/page3.html ):
* Emergent Effects in Developmental Disorders of Language
* Category Learning
* Interactions of the Prefrontal Cortex and Hippocampal Formation Involved in
Episodic and Working Memory
* Decision Making

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.
