The original call for contribution and participation is enclosed below:

The 2nd Beijing International Symposium on Computational Neuroscience is 
an intensive, high quality, one day symposium taking place on July 22, 
2010, in Tsinghua University. It will feature presentations of theories, 
models, and theory/model- motivated experiments in neuroscience. Most 
presentations will be contributed posters, allowing extensive 
interactions and exchanges between participants. Additionally, there 
will be four invited oral presentations. The topics of interests 
include, but are not limited to, computational theories and models of 
vision or other sensory processes, motor control, learning,  memory, and 
decision making; physiological and psychological experiments to test or 
develop computational theories, such as monkey electrophysiology to test 
theories of visual attention, and human psychophysics to explore models 
of visual adaptation, inference, and perceptual learning, and 
inter-disciplinary investigations in neural encoding and decoding, 
learning and plasticity, neural circuits and networks, etc. This 
symposium aims to encourage interaction between computational and 
experimental communities, between researchers in the regional and 
international communities of computational neuroscience, and to foster 
and encourage interest among students and young researchers in this field.
