Call for participation in and submission to Beijing International
Symposium on Computational Neuroscience, July 24-25, 2009

An intensive high quality symposium on computational neuroscience will
be held on July 24-25th, 2009, in Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.
The topics for this symposium will include, and not be limited to,
computational theories and models of vision, audition, olfaction, motor
control, neural encoding and decoding, learning and plasticity, memory,
neural circuits and networks, attention, decision making, as well as
theory or model motivated experiments. One of the aims of this symposium
is to encourage communications and interactions between researchers in
the regional and international communities of computational
neuroscience, and to foster and encourage interests among students and
young researchers in this research direction. There will be both oral
and poster presentations at the symposium.

Researchers and students are encouraged to participate in the symposium.
Registration is free but is required to participate. Spaces are limited,
hence please sign up soon. If you would like to present your work in
this symposium, please submit your work as soon as possible and before
June 20th to the symposium organizer (Li Zhaoping z.li at ucl.ac.uk). Each
submission should include author information, title, and a one page
abstract. Supplementary materials (e.g., papers, webpages) maybe
included although not necessary. The submissions will be considered by a
symposium committee for a limited number of oral and poster
presentations. Limited travel funds are available to help students and
young researchers to participate in the symposium. Preference will be
given to those who present their work in the symposium. Please contact
the symposium organizer (Li Zhaoping, z.li at ucl.ac.uk ) to apply for
travel assistance if needed.

Speakers for the symposium include
Peter Dayan (University College London),
Tomoki Fukai (RIKEN),
Jean-Piere Nadel (Ecole Normale Superireure, to be confirmed),
Ning Qian (Columbia University),
Misha Tsodyks (Weizmann Institute),
Si Wu (Institute of Neuroscience, Shanghai),
Li Zhaoping (University College London).
