Dear Comp-neuro people,

I'd like to draw your attention to a call for participation in a short
workshop on Computational Developmental Neuroscience to be held in Edinburgh
later on this year.

All the best,



Workshop on Computational Developmental Neuroscience
Edinburgh, 26-27 November, 2008


      * David Willshaw (Edinburgh)
      * Stephen Eglen (Cambridge)
      * David Sterratt (Edinburgh)


      * EPSRC Mathematical Neuroscience Network
      * UK Neuroinformatics Network 
      * BBSRC Cell Signalling Network (SIGNET)

The study of nervous system development is one area of research where
there is great promise that computational and mathematical methods of
modelling can be applied successfully. The aim of this two-day meeting
is to bring together researchers who model neural development or who are
interested in the subject. Additionally, it is hoped to involve
experimental neuroscientists interested in computational approaches to
neural development.

There will also be a didactic element: experimental neuroscientists who
work in developmental neurobiology will give an overview of their field
and its relevance for modelling studies. Currently the following
experimental neuroscientists have agreed to talk

      * Professor David Price (Edinburgh)
      * Dr Robert Hindges (Kings College London)
      * Dr Zoltan Molnar (Oxford).
