OKINAWA/OIST COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE COURSE 2017
     Methods, Neurons, Networks and Behaviors
                    June 26 to July 13, 2017
Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University, Japan
                https://groups.oist.jp/ocnc

The aim of the Okinawa/OIST Computational Neuroscience Course is to
provide opportunities for young researchers with theoretical backgrounds
to learn the latest advances in neuroscience, and for those with experimental
backgrounds to have hands-on experience in computational modeling.

We invite graduate students and postgraduate researchers to participate
in the course, held from June 26th through July 13th, 2017 at an oceanfront
seminar house of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate
University. Applications are through the course web page 
(https://groups.oist.jp/ocnc) only; January 3 - February 5, 2017. 
Applicants will receive confirmation of acceptance in March.

Like in preceding years, OCNC will be a comprehensive three-week course
covering single neurons, networks, and behaviors with ample time for
student projects. The first week will focus exclusively on methods with
hands-on tutorials during the afternoons, while the second and third weeks
will have lectures by international experts. The course has a strong hands-on 
component based on student proposed modeling or data analysis projects, 
which are further refined with the help of a dedicated tutor. Applicants are 
required to propose their project at the time of application. 

There is no tuition fee. The sponsor will provide lodging and meals during
the course and may support travel for those without funding. We hope that
this course will be a good opportunity for theoretical and experimental
neuroscientists to meet each other and to explore the attractive nature and
culture of Okinawa, the southernmost island prefecture of Japan.
