Dear Colleagues,

The Bernstein Association for Computational Neuroscience 
<http://www.nncn.de/en/bernstein-association> invites nominations for 
the *V**alentino Braitenberg Award for Computational Neuroscience.*

The award is biannually presented by the Bernstein Association to a 
scientist in recognition of outstanding research that contributes to our 
understanding of the functioning of the brain. The major criterion for 
the award is the impact or potential impact of the recipient's research 
on the field of brain science. In the spirit of Valentino Braitenberg's 
research, special emphasis is given to theoretical studies elucidating 
the functional implications of brain structures and their neuronal 
network dynamics.

The awardee receives a €5.000 prize donated by the Autonome Provinz 
Bozen Südtirol as well as complimentary participation (registration, 
travel, and hotel accomodation) in the Bernstein Conference 2014. Here, 
the prize is awarded together with a Golden Neuron pin badge in a 
special ceremony that includes the Valentino Braitenberg lecture given 
by the awardee.

Nominations may be submitted by scientists working in the field of 
Computational Neuroscience and should include toe following documents:
