Submission to NEUROCOMP'08 will be over in few days!

The second French Conference on Computational Neurosciences will be held
from October 08th to October 11th in Marseille (France)
(see http://2008.neurocomp.fr). Computational Neuroscience is the study of
the mechanisms governing the processing of information in the nervous
system. This integrative, interdisciplinary approach needs the constructive
input from various fields such as neuroscience, information science,
statistical physics or robotics.

Submit your paper in the form of a summary (4 pages maximum) in electronic
format *before June 3, 2008* by using our submission server (see
http://2008.neurocomp.fr). It is of course possible to submit in english,
and remember that a vast majority of papers (and thus of talks and posters)
are likely be in english.

The scope of possible interventions is wide, ranging from realistic models
to more integrative levels. Following the conference, a separate review
process will take place to publish the most innovative papers in a special
issue of J. Physiol., Paris.

We encourage submissions from master students or undergraduates. It is
possible for students to be exempt from fees, insofar as they submit a job
as first author. Some scholarships will be awarded on the basis of the
quality of the work submitted.
