Call for Abstracts: Bernstein Conference 2016

Satellite Workshops September 20-21, 2016
Main Conference September 21-23, 2016
PhD Symposium September 23-24, 2016

The Bernstein Conference started out as the annual meeting of the 
Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience and has become the largest 
annual Computational Neuroscience conference in Europe with more than 
500 international participants in recent years. This year the conference 
is organized by the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience 
Berlin at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The main conference (Sep 
21-23, 2016) will be accompanied by satellite workshops (Sep 20-21, 
2016) and a PhD symposium (Sep 23-24, 2016). An important part of the 
main conference will be the two poster sessions.

We are now inviting the submission of abstracts from all relevant areas. 
Authors of most accepted abstracts will get the chance for a poster 
presentation, a small number of abstracts will be selected for 
contributed talks during the main conference. Please note the earlier 
submission deadline for authors applying for a talk. All accepted 
abstracts will be published online and will be citable via Digital 
Object Identifiers (DOI).

Please note that the submission of an abstract does not replace the 
conference registration (www.bernstein-conference.de/registration). 
Poster space is limited and early submission is encouraged.
