A reminder of the ongoing call. Please, note the modified dates of 
meeting and workshops. The workshops will be held on July 29th and 30th, 
not 28th and 29th as written in the previous call


  19th Annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting, CNS*2010

July 24-30, 2010

San Antonio, Texas

*_CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS_*

And what a special meeting that will be! CNS*2010 will be exciting and 
successful, as it kicks off the 20th year of the CNS meeting series. 
(Like any self-respecting computational person, we of course count from 
zero.) CNS*2010 will be co-organized by Mr. CNS himself, Jim Bower. 
Featuring will be many of the original CNSers, who, among other things, 
would be clamoring to attend well-organized workshops, and even speak 
here and there. So let’s give it a fitting workshop session as well!

* *

At this time, we are requesting proposals for workshops from the 
international community of computational neuroscientists. Proposals from 
all levels of faculty as well as advanced postdoctoral fellows are 
welcome. This is a great opportunity to organize a small meeting with 
just a few of the headaches of actually organizing it. Workshop proposal 
aligned with the yearly theme of CNS*2010, /Neural-Machine Interfaces/, 
will be given preference.

*Workshop proposal submission instructions for CNS*2010*

The last two days (July 29-30) of the 19^th annual CNS*2010 meeting will 
be devoted to workshops, in which computationally related Neuroscience 
topics can be presented and discussed. Workshops can be anywhere between 
one half to two days in duration. Usually several speakers are invited 
to introduce a unifying theme, but ample time for discussion should also 
be planned. When planning the workshops, keep in mind that many high 
level CNSers will be attending this historic meeting. The author list of 
/Computational Neuroscience: Trends in Research/ from the early 90s 
should give you an idea who may be present.//

Submit workshop proposals to: Alex Dimitrov, Workshop Chair; 
workshops at cnsorg.org <mailto:workshops at cnsorg.org>. An archive of 
workshops held at previous CNS meetings is available at 
http://www.cnsorg.org/meetings/archives/. The proposal should contain a 
workshop title, a brief description of workshop content(approximately 
150 words), and a list of potential speakers. Please, indicate who of 
the speakers have been contacted and who have indicated interest.

Workshops submitted before January 5, 2010 will be given preferential 
acceptance and will be made public when registration opens on January 
15, 2010. Workshop proposals arriving after January 15, 2010 will be 
evaluated based on remaining space for additional workshops. No further 
workshop acceptances will be anticipated after May 15, 2010.

_Travel awards:_ Based on proposal evaluation, a limited number of 
Travel Awards will be available for postdoctoral researchers, women and 
minorities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics to lead 
and be included as speakers. A few starting Assistant Professors may 
also be given consideration. Please indicate which speakers you would 
like to be considered for this mechanism. Support will be partially 
provided from a National Science Foundation grant # IIS-0943753 to the 
Center for Adaptive Neural Systems, Arizona State University.

_Springer Computational Neuroscience Book Series:_ Some of the workshops 
may be published by the Springer Series in Computational Neuroscience 
<http://www.springer.com/series/8164>. Workshop organizers interested in 
this mechanism should submit a book proposal to Ann.Avouris at springer.com 
<mailto:Ann.Avouris at springer.com> and indicate in the workshop proposal 
their interest in publishing a book.

_Logistics:_ Rooms, AV equipment, snacks and beverages during breaks 
will be provided by OCNS to the workshop organizers.

_Registration:_ Workshop registration will occur through the OCNS 
registration web site for CNS*2010. All workshop participants, including 
speakers must register.
