**************************************************************
*Important Dates:*
_Workshops:_ September 12 - 13, 2017

**************************************************************

Since 2013, the Bernstein Conference hosts pre-conference workshops. 
They provide a stage to discuss topical
research questions, novel scientific approaches and challenges in 
Computational Neuroscience and related fields.
Workshops addressing controversial issues, open problems, and 
comparisons of competing approaches are
encouraged. Workshop formats should be designed to foster debate beyond 
a mere series of talks.
The Bernstein Conference started out as the annual meeting of the 
Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience
and has become the largest annual single-track Computational 
Neuroscience conference in Europe in recent years.

_Workshop time frame:_
September 12, 2017, 13:00 - 18:00
September 13, 2017,   9:00 - 12:30

Workshop proposals are welcome for either half-day or full-day workshops.

Workshop costs: NEW THIS YEAR – FINANCIAL SUPPORT:
For all accepted workshops the registration is free of charge for 
organizers and speakers. Organizers will also receive
a waiver for the main conference fee. New this year: From the accepted 
workshops a maximum of ten workshops
will be selected to each receive financial support of up to 1.500,00 €.

For further information about the conference, please visit the 
conference website http://www.bernstein-conference.de.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS PREPARATION
Workshop proposals must contain:
1) Workshop Title
2) Concise description of workshop topic
3) List of potential speakers indicating speaker commitment

Please use the Workshop Proposal Form that can be downloaded here:

*Deadline for submission of Workshop proposals:**March 15, 2017*

Accommodation and Hotel Reservation:
We strongly recommend early room booking.  The number of available 
accommodation is limited due to several
concurrent events. We arranged for room contingents in a variety of 
hotels that you may book by yourself by email or
phone. Please follow the instructions at our Accommodations Web-site
(http://www.nncn.de/de/bernstein-conference/2017/venue/accommodation).
We would like to emphasize that these room contingents will be held open 
up to different expiration dates depending
on the hotel (or until they are filled). The earliest expiration date is 
already end of May 2017 whereas the majority of
offers expire at the 12th of July 2017. We strongly encourage 
participants to share rooms and to book rooms as a group.
Groups of three or four are possible if you book a suite.  The room 
contingent contains a set of suits and apartments.
We emphasize that it will be very difficult to book accommodation beyond 
the expiration dates.
Please find a list of the hotels  at our Accommodations Web-site.
