Dear Colleagues,

Please let me remind you that the Bernstein Association for Computational Neuroscience<http://www.nncn.de/en/bernstein-association> invites nominations for the Valentino 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 2016. 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 the following documents:
- One-page laudation, in which the scientific work of the candidate is honored with regard to the award's criteria
- CV and list of publications

Deadline for nominations is April 30, 2016 by e-mail to an.huber at fz-juelich.de<mailto:an.huber at fz-juelich.de>

The call for nominations can be found under the followingn URL:
