Dear colleagues,

like in previous years, the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating
Facility (INCF; www.incf.org) is presenting selected neuroinformatics
projects at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (booth
#2100 in the Exhibit Hall of the Chicago Convention Center, Sunday,
October 18 - Wednesday, October 21).

See below for this years program or download the flyer from


In addition, we would like to invite you all to the social event
"Neuroscience 2.0 - Networking data, tools, and people", held on
Monday October 19, 6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. in Lake Erie Room at the
Chicago Hilton. And on Tuesday, Oct. 20 6:45–8:45 p.m. there will
be the "Computational Neuroscience Social: Not an Oxymoron!" with
brief presentations at McCormick Place: Room N228.

Last but not least I would like to point you to the "Related Abstract
Search Tool" - a contribution from the INCF Japan Node to help you
organize your SfN 2009 meeting attendance:


See you in Chicago?
