[Apology for cross-postings]

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a conference on: Collaborative Development of 
Data-Driven Models of Neural Systems
September 18-21, 2016
Janelia Farm Research Campus, Virginia, USA
Deadline for registration: 18th May

Detailed computational models are critical for elucidating neuronal and 
network function. They enable different levels of description to be 
linked, a wide range of neurophysiological experiments to be interpreted 
and quantitative predictions to be made. These factors are important for 
understanding large-scale complex systems, like neural circuits; 
however, more extensive use and scaling up of these data driven models 
pose challenges in ensuring that models are scientifically rigorous, as 
well as accessible and usable by both theoretical and experimental 
researchers alike. This conference will bring together a range of 
experimentalists, theoreticians and neuroinformatics developers with the 
aim of facilitating a global, open infrastructure for collaborative 
model development in neuroscience.
