*Call for Workshops and Tutorials at the 29th Annual Computational 
Neuroscience Meeting (CNS*2020), Melbourne, July 18--22*

We are requesting proposals for workshops and tutorials from the 
international community of computational neuroscientists. Proposals from 
all levels of faculty as well as advanced postdoctoral fellows are 
welcome. This is a great opportunity to organize a small meeting or 
introduce novel methodology with just a few of the headaches of actually 
organizing it. We are looking forward to your submissions.

1. WORKSHOP PROPOSAL SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS FOR CNS 2020, MELBOURNE

Workshops, in which computationally related neuroscience topics can be 
presented, will take place during the last two days (*July 21 and July 
22, 2020*) of the 29th Annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting 
<http://clicks.memberclicks-mail.net/wf/click?upn=l2WnPG7xcNg4BaXop0h67T8NXQVXs5R19xXm8uLPXIejgkbMWnmqvHwxgeDqf8Qt_ne0sPI1vlgZyEaH7E9DZmepLP7Mb24YhGBhyxOCi5g91sFEhJeMN5LjHyU-2FgdKD92mSuLd8nmvo6quv12StnKRmdIzFtWKUn96TNwfuBA-2Bp481-2B1qrX2rCok6GOL0km8Q9-2FgPodnMpNy4to9rXA6tfc-2BdfSp80mIdoLkAHyf540qpv7-2F8lRmGLo48QHQK76Sf9iTpHoA-2Fib-2FMASLpUDgK-2B-2Fvfaf7Aof-2B4mrYQmRl0mXpMRVsRPWuvIOHXR51E9xYCVhecUc-2B6jBo2wy936xr-2BFTN9fPeaozcMSW8Oa1OWwon9Cdhvn2ZYu8LH8dbKEf0-2BtE-2BPEsXDPG5PSD-2FJUJ8CEKHRDl5yGooFoU59q2fXiU-3D>. 
For each workshop, usually, several speakers are invited to introduce a 
unifying theme, but ample time for discussion should also be planned.

*Please note that there is a change in the format of the meeting 
compared to previous years.* The main meeting will conclude on July 21, 
with a keynote lecture and a poster session taking place in the 
afternoon. The morning of July 21 is reserved for workshops. A goal of 
this "mixed day" of the meeting is to facilitate an overlap of 
attendance. Participants who have registered for either the main meeting 
or the workshops will be allowed to attend all of the events on July 21 
(workshops, keynote, poster session). The last day of the meeting, July 
22, is reserved for workshops, as in the previous years (workshop 
registration will be required to attend).

Accordingly, the possible duration of a workshop is anywhere from 0.5 
days (one session lasting 3.5 hours) to 1.5 days (three half-day 
sessions). Half-day workshops will be preferentially scheduled for July 
21. They will thus offer the opportunity to attract a wider audience 
still present for the main meeting.

Submit workshop proposals to *workshops AT cnsorg.org*. The Past 
Meetings page 
<http://clicks.memberclicks-mail.net/wf/click?upn=l2WnPG7xcNg4BaXop0h67bHV7AW5ZrS6tsXT29q7RbFv9IRuzYLC8y745yyXk5hwti6ut-2BmcNdSy6hK1QQ2hVg-3D-3D_ne0sPI1vlgZyEaH7E9DZmepLP7Mb24YhGBhyxOCi5g91sFEhJeMN5LjHyU-2FgdKD92mSuLd8nmvo6quv12StnKRmdIzFtWKUn96TNwfuBA-2Bp481-2B1qrX2rCok6GOL0km8Q9-2FgPodnMpNy4to9rXA6tfc-2BdfSp80mIdoLkAHyf5401vrXToGBPWmKNzJfOh-2BhnhN6cDXp26Aw5FLBrlpimaZ8kOqldIH77cbbZ4A2Fi6343gV7AsUYgMxglgR0JDY1ICXjxBtPpiKiEtDUGuoMlgar7TPCpiysoNzcDM1DXfSNfpE6rbj-2Bw65wTK8Gvq9CEeJvq0zaIecBydKtyt2u9KBadeCjgTnqiL2JD68-2FNwo-3D>

2. TUTORIAL PROPOSAL SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS FOR CNS 2020, MELBOURNE

Tutorials are intended as introductions into main methodologies of 
various fields in computational neuroscience. Tutorials are particularly 
tailored for early-stage researchers as well as researchers entering a 
new field in computational neuroscience.

The tutorials are held on the first day,*18 July 2020*, with a typical 
total attendance of ca. 100 students allowing for four concurrent 
sessions during the day.

Three different formats are available:

  *

    Introductory FULL DAY courses

  *

    Specialized HALF DAY tutorials

  *

    30 MINUTES software showcase

As approved by the OCNS Board on July 13, 2019, accepted tutorials are 
eligible to receive maximum one travel award and tutorial registration 
waivers for 1-3 organizers depending on the length of the tutorial. 
Software showcase sessions do not receive any funding, travel award, or 
free registration.

Submit tutorial proposals to *tutorials AT cnsorg.org*. Please compare 
it with the previous year's tutorials 
<http://clicks.memberclicks-mail.net/wf/click?upn=l2WnPG7xcNg4BaXop0h67T8NXQVXs5R19xXm8uLPXId8if5wfAA1UGcuvEtJ0IbuhvJ7037KsKgrV2Iqn-2B8fuw-3D-3D_ne0sPI1vlgZyEaH7E9DZmepLP7Mb24YhGBhyxOCi5g91sFEhJeMN5LjHyU-2FgdKD92mSuLd8nmvo6quv12StnKRmdIzFtWKUn96TNwfuBA-2Bp481-2B1qrX2rCok6GOL0km8Q9-2FgPodnMpNy4to9rXA6tfc-2BdfSp80mIdoLkAHyf541grgymhO6Ur3NgYPuSG4EJ73Tbf3TzaVbcF8JcX7BriSI0kWSr4oUjytvcVC-2FlratqLmiuqDAfiaYTmAUQNnzjOK40xbKUcnyO7x4Nuat914Ll7-2BK8xWBlc9Zz-2BsAEHQ8LaJmoS-2FsPya7sYaxxthLeI-2BNP3Zry-2FBFzQgkzpEPkjSQbeQQxqD2jfQjLv76Od3U-3D>. 
Note that our new format, the showcases, will be combined to one 
continuous afternoon program.

The proposal should be submitted as a Word or pdf file and MUST include 
the following sections:

  *

    *Tutorial Title*

  *

    *Organizers* (list primary organizer first; include affiliations and
    emails)

  *

    *Format* (full-day, half-day, showcase)

  *

    *Brief Description* (max. 300 words; include links to relevant software)

*DEADLINE*: Tutorial proposals should be submitted before *January 31, 
2020*.

Please address any questions to *tutorials AT cnsorg.org.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Registration*: Workshop/tutorial registration will occur through the 
OCNS registration website for CNS*2020. All workshop/tutorial 
participants, including speakers, must register. Each workshop/tutorial 
is eligible to receive workshop/tutorial registration waivers for 1-3 
speakers/organizers (depending on the length of the workshop/tutorial).

*Travel awards*: A limited number of Travel Awards will be available for 
workshop/tutorial organizers or speakers (maximum one Travel Award per 
workshop/tutorial). Priority will be given to postdocs and early career 
faculty. Travel Award amounts will be variable, depending on distance 
traveled. Please indicate which speaker or organizer you would like to 
be considered for this mechanism. The Travel Awards Chair reserves the 
right to approve / not approve a travel award nomination, based on 
seniority considerations with preference given to young scientists. It 
is likely that there will be fewer travel awards than workshops.
