        Methods, Neurons, Networks and Behaviors
           June 11 - June 29, 2012. Okinawa, Japan

The aim of the Okinawa Computational Neuroscience Course is to
provide opportunities for young researchers with theoretical backgrounds
to learn the latest advances in neuroscience, and for those with experimental
backgrounds to have hands-on experience in computational modeling.

We invite graduate students and postgraduate researchers to participate
in the course, held from June 11th through June 29th, 2012 at an oceanfront
seminar house of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology.
Applications are through the course web page only; they will open January
9th and close February 12th, 2012. Applicants are required to propose a 
project at the time of application. Applicants will receive confirmation of 
acceptance in March.

Like in preceding years, OCNC will be a comprehensive three-week course
covering single neurons, networks, and behaviors with ample time for
student projects. The first week will focus exclusively on methods with
hands-on tutorials during the afternoons, while the second and third weeks
will have lectures by international experts. Students receive individualized 
tutoring for their projects. We invite those who are interested in integrating 
experimental and computational approaches at each level, as well as in 
bridging different levels of complexity.

The sponsor will provide lodging and meals during the course and
support travel for those without funding. We hope that this course will
be a good opportunity for theoretical and experimental neuroscientists
to meet each other and to explore the attractive nature and culture of
Okinawa, the southernmost island prefecture of Japan.
