OKINAWA/OIST COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE COURSE 2018
   Methods, Neurons, Networks and Behaviors
                  June 25 to July 12, 2018
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 25th through July 12th, 2018 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 1 - February 3, 2018. 
Applicants will receive confirmation of acceptance in March.

Like in preceding years, the 15th 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 provides partial travel support. 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.
