Methods, Neurons, Networks and Behaviors
June 14 – July 3, 2009. 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 14th through July 3rd, 2009 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 5th, 2009 and applications will close February 19th, 2009. Applicants will be required to propose a project at the time of application. Applicants will receive confirmation of acceptance before end of March.
Like in preceding years, 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.
