Registration is open for the

"Single neuron morphology & computation" workshop
8-9 July 2010, VU University Amsterdam

In this workshop, we aim to bring together researchers that are investigating different aspects of the neuronal morphology-function relationship. In particular, the focus will be on algorithms to generate morphologies, modeling studies quantifying neuronal morphologies and their variance, and, modeling studies linking morphological features to computational mechanisms.

Topics:
- Neuronal Morphological Modeling
- Neuronal Morphological Simulators
- Neuronal Morphology: Form-Function relationships
- Neuronal Reconstruction
- Neuroinformatics of Neuronal Morphology: databasing, standardization, etc

Confirmed speakers:
Giorgio Ascoli (George Mason University)
Luciano da Fontoura Costa (Instituto Federal de Santa Catarina)
Hermann Cuntz (University College London)
Rodney Douglas (Institute of neuroinformatics)
Boris Gutkin (Ecole Normale Superieure)
