Happy new year everybody! I would like to use this opportunity to strengthen
the New Year resolution that you undoubtedly have made ­to organize a
workshop for the annual Computational Neuroscience meeting, CNS*2011 in
Stockholm :-) As you will notice, there is still a whole week before the
early deadline of January 10, which will ensure that your workshop is posted
and seen by all the registrants from the very beginning!

Without further ado:

/*20th Annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting, CNS*2011*/
July 23-28, 2011
Stockholm, Sweden
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*2011, /Neuronal network structure and dynamics in function and
dysfunction/, will be given preference.
/*Workshop proposal submission instructions for CNS*2011*/
The last two days (July 27-28) of the 20th annual CNS*2011 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.
Submit workshop proposals to: Alex Dimitrov, Workshop Chair;
workshops at cnsorg.org. An archive of workshops held at previous CNS meetings
is available at http://www.cnsorg.org/meetings/archives/.  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

Workshops submitted before January 10, 2011 will be given preferential
acceptance and will be made public when registration opens on January 15,
2011. Workshop proposals arriving after January 15, 2011 will be evaluated
based on remaining space for additional workshops. No further workshop
acceptances will be anticipated after May 15, 2011.
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 and be included as speakers.
A few starting 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

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 and 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
registration web site for CNS*2011.  All workshop participants, including
speakers should register.
