Dear colleagues!

I cordially invite you to submit contributions to the NEST Conference 2018 to be held on

	25/26 June 2018 (Monday/Tuesday, lunch to lunch)

on the beautiful campus of the Norwegian University of Life Sciences at Ås, 30km south of Oslo.


We are excited to offer the following conference highlights:

	• NEST 3 — Gain first hands-on experience with the future of NEST
	• NEST Doc++ — Shape the professional documentation for NEST
	• Brain Atlases as Tools for Neuroscience (Jan Bjaalie/Trygve Leergaard)
	• Agricultural Robotics — Meet Thorvald, NMBU's robot for precision farming (sagarobotics.com)!
	• Midsummer conference barbecue dinner on NMBU's beautiful campus
	• 3-day Hackathon after the conference with focus on improving documentation

The NEST Conference provides an opportunity for the NEST Community to meet, exchange success stories, swap advice, learn about current developments in and around NEST spiking network simulation and its application. We would like you to share your experiences made and results obtained with NEST during the conference. You can do so either by a short oral presentation (10–15 minutes), on a poster, through a demo, or by organizing group work.
