[Comp-neuro] Valentino Braitenberg Award for Computational Neuroscience - Call for Nominations

Dear Colleagues,

The Bernstein Association for Computational Neuroscience invites nominations for the Valentino Braitenberg Award for Computational Neuroscience.

The award is biannually presented by the Bernstein Association to a scientist in recognition of outstanding research that contributes to our understanding of the functioning of the brain. The major criterion for the award is the impact or potential impact of the recipient's research on the field of brain science. In the spirit of Valentino Braitenberg's research, special emphasis is given to theoretical studies elucidating the functional implications of brain structures and their neuronal network dynamics.

The awardee receives a €5.000 prize donated by the Autonome Provinz Bozen Südtirol as well as complimentary participation (registration, travel, and hotel accomodation) in the Bernstein Conference 2014. Here, the prize is awarded together with a Golden Neuron pin badge in a special ceremony that includes the Valentino Braitenberg lecture given by the awardee.

Nominations may be submitted by scientists working in the field of Computational Neuroscience and should include toe following documents:
- One-page laudation, in which the scientific work of the candidate is honored with regard to the award's criteria
- CV and list of publications

Deadline for nominations is June 16, 2014 by e-mail to
