Dear all

The 6th Annual INCF Congress of Neuroinformatics will convene August 27-29
at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden. (see flyer attached).

The emerging field of neuroinformatics combines neuroscience and
informatics research to develop tools and approaches to understand the
structure and function of the brain. These tools can also be applied to the
study of brain disorders and diseases.

The INCF Neuroinformatics Congress welcomes more than 200 researchers in
all fields related to neuroinformatics, including data- and knowledge-bases
of the nervous system from molecular to behavioral levels; tools for the
acquisition, analysis, and visualization of nervous system data; and
theoretical, computational, and simulation environments for modeling the
brain. The meeting will include a series of keynote speakers, workshops,
poster sessions and live demonstrations of neuroinformatics tools.

*Call for Workshop proposals: deadline 31st January 2013*
