The tutorials, main meeting and workshops will be held at Agnes Scott
College located in Decatur, a small town with a lot of American charm
connected by metro to Atlanta and its international airport.

Submissions can include experimental, model-based, as well as more abstract
theoretical approaches to understanding neurobiological computation.  We
especially encourage research that mixes experimental and theoretical
studies.  We also accept papers that describe new technical approaches to
theoretical and experimental issues in computational neuroscience or
relevant software packages.

Submission instructions, submission website, and a full description of the
review process are at http://www.cnsorg.org/cns-2012-abstract-submission

Authors wishing to give an oral presentation are required also to submit a
1-3-page summary (for the OCNS reviewers only) describing the nature, scope
and main results of the work in more detail.  The summaries will be
reviewed to construct the oral program.  All submissions will be
acknowledged by e-mail.

After acceptance the presenting author has to register for the meeting
before the abstract will be included in the program or online publication.
Presenting authors can submit maximum one abstract except for OCNS members
who can submit two abstracts.


OPEN ACCESS, CITABLE ABSTRACT PUBLICATION:

The formatted abstracts will again be published as a Supplement to the
online journal BMC Neuroscience. The supplement is citable, indexed by
PubMed, and open access.

At least one author must register for CNS*2012 by the early registration
deadline of May 31, 2012 for the abstract to be published and included in
the program book.  Abstracts from previous CNS meetings are available at
http://www.cnsorg.org/publications


AWARDS:

A limited number of merit based travel grants, awarded based on review of
abstracts and 1-3 page summaries by the program committee, will be
available to students and postdocs.  Women and underrepresented minorities
in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines are
particularly encouraged to apply.  Applications will be due February 29,
2012.  See instructions for requesting travel awards at
http://www.cnsorg.org/cns-2012-travel-awards

Recipients of travel grants will be notified by May 5, 2012.
