Methods, Neurons, Networks and Behaviors
June 15 – July 4, 2008. Okinawa, Japan
The aim of the Okinawa Computational Neuroscience Course is to
provide opportunities for young researchers with theoretical backgrounds
to learn the latest advances in neuroscience, and for those with experimental
backgrounds to have hands-on experience in computational modeling.
We invite graduate students and postgraduate researchers to participate
in the course, held from June 15th through July 4th, 2008 at an oceanfront
seminar house of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology.
Applications will be through the course web page only; the forms will
become available January 7th, 2008 and applications will close February
17th, 2008. Applicants will be required to propose a project at the time of
application. Applicants will receive confirmation of acceptance before end
of March.
Like last year, OCNC will be a comprehensive three-week course covering
single neurons, networks, and behaviors with ample time for student projects.
The first week will focus exclusively on methods with hands-on tutorials
during the afternoons, while the second and third weeks will have lectures
by international experts. We invite those who are interested in integrating
experimental and computational approaches at each level, as well as in
bridging different levels of complexity.
The sponsor will provide lodging and meals during the course and
support travel for those without funding. We hope that this course will
be a good opportunity for theoretical and experimental neuroscientists
to meet each other and to explore the attractive nature and culture of
Okinawa, the southernmost island prefecture of Japan.
