Special in 2019: The Conference on Cognitive Computational Neuroscience (CCN)<https://ccneuro.org/> will be held back-to back with the Bernstein Conference on September 13 - 16.
The Bernstein Conference is the largest annual single-track Computational Neuroscience conference in Europe. It hosts pre-conference workshops which 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. The format should be designed to foster debate, rather than a mere series of talks. The selection criteria for workshop proposals will include scientific excellence, topical relevance and gender diversity.

Satellite Workshop Schedule:
September 17, 2019, 2:00 pm - 6:30 pm
September 18, 2019, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm

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

Workshop Costs – Financial Support:
All organizers and speakers of accepted workshops will receive a waiver for the workshop fee. Organizers of accepted workshops additionally receive a waiver for the main conference. Coffee break catering will be provided. Up to 10 selected workshops can receive financial support up to 1.500,00 € each.

Instructions for Workshop Proposal Preparation:
Workshop proposals must contain:
1) Workshop Title
2) Concise description of workshop topic
3) List of potential speakers indicating speaker commitment
4) Optional: a comment on how the organizers plan to achieve gender diversity among speakers
