Dear Neuroinformatician,

Thank you for making the 2011 NeuroInformatics.NL symposium in The
Hague a great success (http://neuroinformatics.nl/?q=symposium2011).
We think that in-person meetings are key to building a vivid
community, and therefore we are committed to organize three thematic
half day workshops and one full day Belgian/Dutch symposium in 2012.

Here we focus on the upcoming workshop, entitled "Structure, Function
and Modeling of Dendrites", which will take place on Friday, January
20th, 2012, at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam Medical Center (VUmc),
close to Amsterdam Zuid which has direct connections to Groningen,
Eindhoven, Nijmegen etc.

Since community building is the main aim of the workshop series, we
aimed to compose an attractive program that, despite being centered
around a theme, should attract a broad audience with both
data-providers and data-users. In vivo recordings, health & disease,
finite element modeling and electron microscopy are covered.

A nicely formatted program with abstracts is here:

In plain text, the program is:
13:30 - 14:00 Chat on arrival
14:00 – 14:05 Welcome
14:05 – 14:40 Dr. Christaan de Kock (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)
             The cortical column in silico
14:40 – 15:15 Prof. Harry B.M. Uylings (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)
             Lifespan and aging changes in human cortical dendrites
15:15 – 15:35 Break with coffee and tea
15:35 – 16:10 Espen Hagen / Torbjorn Ness (Aas university Norway)
             Models for signal propagation in dendritic structures
16:10 – 16:45 Ben Lich (FEI Company)
             Dendrites seen by Scanning Electron Microscopes
16:45 – 17:30 Chat with drinks

We cordially invite you to attend, and alert students and colleagues
to the meeting. Please do register here:
