Tue May 6 11:22:13 CEST 2008

***** Abstract submission deadline extended until Friday, May 9th, 23h59 
PDT **** *

/*NEW*/: All congress abstracts will be published by Frontiers in 
Neuroscience in a special issue and be attributed a DOI.

Opportunities for students:
Attendees of the INCF Autumn School from the EU are eligible to apply 
for funding to cover expenses for both the Neuroinformatics2008 congress 
and the INCF Autumn School. The awards are intended to cover low-price 
airfare, low-fare hostel accommodation for the full duration of the 
congress and the course (i.e. 5 nights), and the congress registration 
fee (early registration). We especially encourage students from new EU 
countries to apply. Course applicants who wish to apply for this funding 
should indicate this and provide an estimate of the traveling costs in 
their CV or Autumn School application.
