Okinawa Computational Neuroscience Course 2012

OKINAWA COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE COURSE 2012
Methods, Neurons, Networks and Behaviors
June 11 – June 29, 2012. Okinawa, Japan
http://www.irp.oist.jp/ocnc/2012

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 11th through June 29th, 2012 at an oceanfront seminar house of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology. Applications are through the course web page only; they will open January 9th and close February 12th, 2012. Applicants are required to propose a project at the time of application. Applicants will receive confirmation of acceptance in 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. Students receive individualized tutoring for their projects. 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.
