Call for Workshops

We are requesting proposals for workshops from the international community of computational neuroscientists. Proposals from all levels of faculty as well as advanced postdoctoral fellows are welcome. This is a great opportunity to organize a small meeting with just a few of the headaches of actually organizing it. 

Workshop proposal submission instructions for CNS 2015

The last two days (July 22-23) of the 24th annual CNS meeting will be devoted to workshops, in which computationally related neuroscience topics can be presented and discussed. Workshops can be anywhere between one half to two days in duration. Usually several speakers are invited to introduce a unifying theme, but ample time for discussion should also be planned.

Submit workshop proposals to: [email protected]. The Past Meetings page gives access to archives of workshops held at previous CNS meetings.

The proposal should be submitted as a Word or pdf file and MUST include the following sections:

  1. Workshop Title
  2. Organizers (list primary organizer first; include affiliations and emails)
  3. One or two days (2 sessions per day)
  4. Number of expected speakers
  5. Brief Description (~150 words; if possible, say why this is significant or timely)
  6. Speakers (mark expected or confirmed)

Also please note the following rules which were approved by the OCNS Board on July 15, 2013:

  • Each individual can be the organizer or co-organizer on only one workshop.
  • The number of confirmed speakers is a criterion for accepting the proposal.
  • Overlapping proposals may be asked to be combined. If the organizers do not wish to combine the proposals, only one of the proposals may be accepted.

Workshops submitted before January 15, 2015 will be given priority in acceptance. Workshop proposals arriving after January 15, 2015 will be evaluated based on remaining space for additional workshops. No further workshop acceptances will be anticipated after May 15, 2015.

Registration: Workshop registration will occur through the OCNS registration web site for CNS 2015. All workshop participants, including speakers must register. Each workshop is eligible to receive registration waivers for 2 speakers.

Travel awards: a limited number of Travel Awards will be available for postdoctoral researchers to lead and be included as speakers. Exceptionally starting assistant professors may also be given consideration. These Travel Awards will be variable depending on distance traveled. Please indicate which speakers you would like to be considered for this mechanism but take into account that there will be less travel awards than workshops.

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 [email protected] and indicate in the workshop proposal their interest in publishing a book.

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