Training in Neuroinformatics  - Call for Letters of Intent

The International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF; 
www.incf.org) is committed to support training in neuroinformatics. INCF 
now invites applications to run short courses lasting between two and 
seven days on any aspects of neuroinformatics at a level suitable for 
PhD students and beyond. The courses should be held in English and open 
to any researcher interested in neuroinformatics. The INCF offers 
financial support to successful proposals, which would cover the venue, 
travel and accommodation costs for a small number of speakers and 
participants. Financial support from other sources is encouraged. One 
condition of funding is that the course material be made available 
publically, through INCF. Our aim is to support the development of new 
courses and so it is not our priority to contribute to existing courses. 
In particular, courses already funded by us will not be eligible for 
further support. Courses are envisaged to take place in 2013.

The Letter of Intent must include information about

1. Topic
2. Organizers
3. Target audience
4. Justification for why INCF should fund this course
5. Course description (up to 250 words).
6. Dissemination plan
7. Speakers - a preliminary list would be helpful
8. Course duration
9. Proposed dates and location
10. Estimated number of participants
11. Draft budget including the amount to be sought from the INCF

The closing date for Letters of Intent is 31st March 2012.  Letters 
should be sent in PDF format per email to training-proposals at incf.org.
The authors of the most promising Letters of Intent will be invited by 
25th April 2012 to submit a full proposal, with a deadline of 1st August 

Informal enquiries should be directed to Raphael Ritz 
(raphael.ritz at incf.org) on behalf of the INCF Training Committee.
