[Comp-neuro] CNS*2013: call for workshop proposals

22nd Annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting CNS*2013
13-18 July 2013
Paris, France

Call for Workshop Proposals

We are requesting proposals for workshops 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 organise a small meeting with just a few of the headaches of actually organising it. Workshop proposals with confirmed speakers and proposals that specifically schedule room for discussion will be given preference. Based on previous experience with CNS meetings in Europe, it is anticipated that not all proposals can be accepted.

Workshop proposal submission instructions for CNS*2013

The last two days (17-18 July) of the 22nd annual CNS*2013 meeting will be devoted to workshops, in which computational neuroscience topics can be presented and discussed. Workshops can be anywhere between one half to two days in duration. Usually several speakers are invited to introduce a unifying theme, but ample time for discussion should also be planned.

Submit workshop proposals to: Volker Steuber, Workshop Chair, workshops@cnsorg.org. An archive of workshops held at previous CNS meetings is available at http://www.cnsorg.org/past-annual-meetings. The proposal should contain a workshop title, a brief description of workshop content (approximately 150 words), and a list of speakers. Please indicate who of the speakers have been contacted and who have confirmed their attendance.

Workshops submitted before 10 January 2013 will be given preferential acceptance. Workshop proposals arriving after this date will be evaluated based on remaining space for additional workshops. No further workshop acceptances will be anticipated after 13 May 2013.

Travel awards: Based on proposal evaluation, a limited number of travel awards will be available for postdoctoral researchers, women and minorities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to be included as speakers. A few starting assistant professors may also be given consideration. Please indicate to the workshop chair which speakers you would like to be considered for this mechanism.

Springer Computational Neuroscience Book Series: Some of the workshops may be published by the Springer Series in Computational Neuroscience. Workshop organizers interested in this mechanism should submit a book proposal to Ann.Avouris@springer.com and indicate in the workshop proposal their interest in publishing a book.

Logistics: Rooms, AV equipment, snacks and beverages during breaks will be provided by OCNS to the workshop organizers.

Registration: Workshop registration will occur through the OCNS registration web site for CNS*2013. All workshop participants, including speakers must register.
