MIDNIGHT next FRIDAY October 26, 2007. After that, registration fees will 
increase to $225 faculty/$110 student.

The committee requests that you PLEASE try to register for the conference by

PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to be family friendly (Halloween), the first day 
will start at 1:30PM to allow for travel that morning, if desired.

Based on the number of poster submissions, it looks like this year's 
conference should be very well attended, with lots of very interesting work!

3RD ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTATIONAL COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE
                www.ccnconference.org

To be held in conjunction with Dynamical Neuroscience XV immediately prior to
the 2007 SOCIETY FOR NEUROSCIENCE (SfN) meeting, November 3-7, 2007 at the San
Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA.

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

* REGISTER AT:

        www.ccnconference.org/page5.html

The inaugural CCNC 2005 meeting held prior to Society for Neuroscience (SfN)
in Washington, DC (also in conjunction with the Dynamical Neuroscience
satellite) was a great success, with approximately 250 attendees, 60 presented
posters, and strongly positive reviews. For 2006, we went to Houston for the
much smaller Psychonomics meeting and still had over 100 attendees and almost
50 posters. In future years, we will continue to rotate among different
neuroscience and psychology meetings.
