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.

Don Edwards, Georgia State University, USA

Malcolm MacIver, Northwestern University, USA

Barbara Webb, University of Edinburgh, UK

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION:

Submissions to the meeting should take the form of a formatted abstract.

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.

Student posters presented at CNS*2012 will also be judged for prizes awarded at 
the meeting.
