            Methods, Neurons, Networks and Behaviors
               June 13 - July 2, 2010. 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 experimental
backgrounds to have hands-on experience in computational modeling.

We invite graduate students and postgraduate researchers to participate
in the course, held from June 13th through July 2nd, 2010 at an oceanfront
seminar house of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology.
Applications are through the course web page only; they will open January
4th and close February 15th, 2010. Applicants are required to propose a 
project at the time of application. Applicants will receive confirmation of 
acceptance in March.

Like in preceding years, OCNC will be a comprehensive three-week course
covering single neurons, networks, and behaviors with ample time for
student projects. The first week will focus exclusively on methods with
hands-on tutorials during the afternoons, while the second and third weeks
will have lectures by international experts. We invite those who are interested
in integrating 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.
