Dear comp-neuro community!

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

Abstract deadline 15 April. Registration now open!

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
Peter Kloppenburg, University of Köln, Germany
Hong Lei, The University of Arizona, USA
Johannes Reisert, Monell Chemical Senses Center, USA
Brian H. Smith, Arizona State University, USA Mark Stopfer, National Institutes 
of Health, USA
Stephen Trowell, CSIRO, Australia
Massimo Vergassola, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France
Jan Wessnitzer, University of Edinburgh, UK
