Dear Colleagues!

The NEST simulator is used by a growing number of neuroscientist. To strengthen the growing NEST community and foster the dialog between NEST users across a broad spectrum of modelling approaches, as well as between users and developers, we would like to invite you to the

First NEST User Workshop, 

Monday 20 April (evening) til Wednesday 22 April (late afternoon)

at Campus Biotech in Geneva, Switzerland.

The workshop is primarily intended for users and developers of NEST and you will benefit most if you already have practical experience with NEST. However, if you are interested in using NEST in the future, this workshop will also be useful for you.

We will present the new NEST Git Repository and Code Review Platform as part of the workshop.

For a limited number of participants, we offer the possibility to present your scientific work done with NEST. If you are interested in presenting, please contact the workshop organizers
