We would like to announce a

        Workshop on
Quantitative Neuron Modeling: Predicting every spike?
       June 25-26, 2007
      EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland

AIMS:
Recently, there have been efforts in several labs
  towards quantitative neuron models
  by measuring the model quality over lots of
different paradigms -- including spike-by-spike
predictions for time-dependent input.

The aim of the workshop will be to bring these people together, compare 
methods, and maybe get into a discussion of:

    1. What are suitable generic sets of stimuli to test neuron models?
    2. What are suitable measures to quantify and optimize
           the quality of neuron models?

We have also opened a challenge:
     Predicting Single-Neuron Behavior
http://lcn.epfl.ch/~gerstner/QuantNeuronMod2007/challenge.html
The results will be discussed at the workshop.

The number of participants in the workshop will be limited
to facilitate discussions.
