*CNS 2015 Prague* *July 18--23, 2015: Call for Workshops*

We are requesting proposals for workshops from the international 
community of computational neuroscientists. Proposals from all levels of 
faculty as well as advanced postdoctoral fellows are welcome. This is a 
great opportunity to organize a small meeting with just a few of the 
headaches of actually organizing it.

*Workshop proposal submission instructions for CNS 2015*

The last two days (July 22-23) of the 24^th annual CNS meeting will be 
devoted to workshops, in which computationally related neuroscience 
topics can be presented and discussed. Workshops can be anywhere between 
one half to two days in duration. Usually several speakers are invited 
to introduce a unifying theme, but ample time for discussion should also 
be planned.

Submit workshop proposals to: workshops at cnsorg.org 
<mailto:workshops at cnsorg.org>. The Past Meetings page 
<http://www.cnsorg.org/past-meetings> gives access to archives of 
workshops held at previous CNS meetings.

The proposal should be submitted as a Word or pdf file and MUST include 
the following sections:

 1. *Workshop Title*
 2. *Organizers*(list primary organizer first; include affiliations and
    _emails_)
 3. *One or two days*(2 sessions per day)
 4. *Number of expected speakers*
 5. *Brief Description*(~150 words; if possible, say why this is
    significant or timely)
 6. *Speakers*(mark expected or confirmed)

Also please note the following rules which were approved by the OCNS 
Board on July 15, 2013:

  * _Each individual can be the organizer or co-organizer on only one
    workshop_.
  * The number of confirmed speakers is a criterion for accepting the
    proposal.
  * Overlapping proposals may be asked to be combined. If the organizers
    do not wish to combine the proposals, only one of the proposals may
    be accepted.

Workshops submitted before January 15, 2015 will be given priority in 
acceptance. Workshop proposals arriving after January 15, 2015 will be 
evaluated based on remaining space for additional workshops. No further 
workshop acceptances will be anticipated after May 15, 2015.

*Registration:* Workshop registration will occur through the OCNS 
registration <http://www.cnsorg.org/cns-2015-registration-fees>web site 
for CNS 2015. All workshop participants, including speakers must 
register. Each workshop is eligible to receive registration waivers for 
2 speakers.

*Travel awards:* a limited number of Travel Awards will be available for 
postdoctoral researchers to lead and be included as speakers. 
Exceptionally starting assistant professors may also be given 
consideration. These Travel Awards will be variable depending on 
distance traveled. Please indicate which speakers you would like to be 
considered for this mechanism but take into account that there will be 
less travel awards than workshops.

*Springer Computational Neuroscience Book Series:*Some of the workshops 
may be published by the Springer Series in Computational Neuroscience 
<http://www.springer.com/series/8164>. Workshop organizers interested in 
this mechanism should submit a book proposal to Ann.Avouris at springer.com 
<mailto:Ann.Avouris at springer.com>and indicate in the workshop proposal 
their interest in publishing a book.

*Logistics:*Rooms, AV equipment, snacks and beverages during breaks will 
be provided by OCNS to the workshop organizers.
