                 Methods, Neurons, Networks and Behaviors
                    June 15 - July 4, 2008. Okinawa, Japan

The aim of the Okinawa Computational Neuroscience Course is to
provide opportunities for young researchers with theoretical backgrounds
to learn the latest advances in neuroscience, and for those with  
backgrounds to have hands-on experience in computational modeling.

We invite graduate students and postgraduate researchers to participate
in the course, held from June 15th through July 4th, 2008 at an  
seminar house of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology.
Interested students can now apply through the course web page at
http://www.irp.oist.jp/ocnc/2008  Applications will close February 17th,
Applicants will receive confirmation of acceptance in the 3rd week of

Like last year, OCNC will be a comprehensive three-week course covering
single neurons, networks, and behaviors with ample time for student  
The first week will focus exclusively on methods with hands-on tutorials
during the afternoons, while the second and third weeks will have  
by international experts. We invite those who are interested in  
experimental and computational approaches at each level, as well as in
bridging different levels of complexity.

The sponsor will provide lodging and meals during the course and
support travel for those without funding. We hope that this course will
be a good opportunity for theoretical and experimental neuroscientists
to meet each other and to explore the attractive nature and culture of
Okinawa, the southernmost island prefecture of Japan.
