CNS 2012 Atlanta/Decatur: Call for Workshops

We are requesting proposals for workshops from the international
community of computational neuroscientists. Proposals from all levels of
 faculty as well as advanced postdoctoral fellows are welcome. This is a
 great opportunity to organize a small meeting with just a few of the
headaches of actually organizing it. Workshop proposal aligned with the
yearly theme of CNS*2012, "Computational Neuroethology", will be given

Workshop proposal submission instructions for CNS 2012 The last two
days (July 25-26) of the 21st annual CNS meeting will be
 devoted to workshops, in which computationally related neuroscience
topics can be presented and discussed. Workshops can be anywhere between
 one half to two days in duration. Usually several speakers are invited
to introduce a unifying theme, but ample time for discussion should also
 be planned.

Please, submit workshop proposals to: workshops at cnsorg.org.
The Past Meetings page <http://www.cnsorg.org/past-meetings>
gives access to archives of workshops held at previous CNS meetings.

The proposal should contain a workshop title, a brief description of
workshop content (approximately 150 words), and a list of potential
speakers. Please, indicate who of the speakers have been contacted and
who have indicated interest.

Workshops submitted before January 10, 2012 will be given
preferential acceptance and will be made public when registration opens.
 Workshop proposals arriving after January 15, 2012 will be evaluated
based on remaining space for additional workshops. No further workshop
acceptances will be anticipated after May 15, 2012.

Travel awards: Based on proposal evaluation, a
limited number of Travel Awards will be available for postdoctoral
researchers, women and minorities in Science, Technology, Engineering
and Mathematics to lead workshops and be included as speakers. A few
Assistant Professors may also be given consideration. Please indicate
which speakers you would like to be considered for this mechanism.
Support will be partially provided from a National Science Foundation
grant # IIS-0943753 to the Center for Adaptive Neural Systems, Arizona
State University and partially by the OCNS.

Springer Computational Neuroscience Book Series: Some of the workshops may
be published by the Springer Series in Computational Neuroscience
<http://www.springer.com/series/8164>. Workshop organizers interested in
this mechanism should submit a book proposal to Ann.Avouris at springer.com
indicate in the workshop proposal their interest in publishing a book.

Logistics: Rooms, AV equipment, snacks and beverages during breaks will be
provided by OCNS to the workshop organizers.

Registration: Workshop registration will occur through the OCNS
<http://www.cnsorg.org/cns-2012-registration-fees> web site for CNS 2012.
All workshop participants, including speakers must register.
