The aim of the Okinawa Computational Neuroscience Course is to
provide opportunities for young researchers with theoretical backgrounds
to learn the latest advances in neuroscience, and for those with experimental
backgrounds to have hands-on experience in computational modeling.

We invite graduate students and postgraduate researchers to participate
in the course, held from June 17th through July 4th, 2013 at an oceanfront
seminar house of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate
University. Applications are through the course web page only; they close 
Sunday February 10th, 2013. Applicants are required to propose a project at 
the time of application. Applicants will receive confirmation of acceptance in 

Like in preceding years, OCNC will be a comprehensive three-week course
covering single neurons, networks, and behaviors with ample time for
student projects. The first week will focus exclusively on methods with
hands-on tutorials during the afternoons, while the second and third weeks
will have lectures by international experts. We invite those who are interested
in integrating experimental and computational approaches at each level, as
well as in bridging different levels of complexity.

There is no tuition fee. The sponsor will provide lodging and meals during 
the course and may support travel for those without funding. We hope that 
this course will be a good opportunity for theoretical and experimental 
neuroscientists to meet each other and to explore the attractive nature and 
culture of Okinawa, the southernmost island prefecture of Japan.
