Twentieth Annual International Computational Neuroscience Conference
July 24 - July 30, 2010
San Antonio, Texas, USA
EARLY MEETING REGISTRATION CLOSES: May 15, 2010 (11 PM Pacific Time, USA)
REGISTRATION WEBSITE: http://www.cnsorg.org/2010 or
NOTIFICATION OF ABSTRACT ACCEPTANCE: April 2010
CNS*2010 will be held in San Antonio, Texas, USA July 24-30th, 2010. The
meeting will kick off with a day of tutorials and an evening welcome
reception on July 24th. The main meeting of CNS*2010 will
take place from Sunday July 25th-Wednesday July 28th, including a
special Symposium, "Computational Neuroscience: What have we learned in
20 years and what do we still need to know?", on the afternoons of July
26th-27th. These events will be followed by two days of workshops on
July 29-30th (Thursday-Friday).
The main meeting will be held in the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel in
central San Antonio, one block from San Antonio's Famous River Walk. San
Antonio is home to several universities including the University of
Texas Health Science Center - San Antonio and the University of Texas
San Antonio, which are both sponsoring CNS*2010. As is traditional, the
CNS banquet will be an interesting and culturally themed event, hosted
at Sundance Ranch on July 28th.
