First call for Abstracts, International Workshop on Dynamical
Olfaction, 30 June - 2 July, 2010, Brighton, UK

Animals are able to experience complexly structured plumes of
different combinations of chemicals as individual olfactory percepts.
It appears that the olfactory system utilizes rich temporal dynamics
to achieve this goal but exactly how is still an open challenge for
modern neuroscience. In the last few years rapid progress has been
made in our understanding of olfactory information processing. In this
focused workshop on Dynamical Olfaction we will share recent
developments, both experimental and theoretical, between the active
researchers in the field. Confirmed keynote speakers include

Maxim Bazhenov, University of California Riverside, USA
C. Giovanni Galizia, University of Konstanz, Germany
Hong Lei, The University of Arizona, USA
Johannes Reisert, Monell Chemical Senses Center, USA
Mark Stopfer, National Institutes of Health, USA
Massimo Vergassola, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France

The programme committee is formed by
Jean-Pierre Rospars, INRA Versailles
Dominique Martinez, LORIA Nancy & INRA Versailles
Thomas Nowotny, University of Sussex
Sylvia Anton, INRA Versailles
