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 and indicate in the workshop proposal their interest in publishing a book.


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