Satellite Workshops

The Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience is currently inviting proposals for Satellite Workshops directly preceding the Bernstein Conference 2018 in Berlin.


Important Dates

  • Satellite Workshops: September 25 - 26, 2018
  • Main Bernstein Conference: September 26 - 28, 2018
  • New Deadline for Satellite Workshop proposal submission:
    March 28, 2018, 3 pm CET
  • Notification of Workshop acceptance: April 2018

Since 2013, the Bernstein Conference hosts pre-conference workshops which provide a stage to discuss topical research questions, novel scientific approaches and challenges in Computational Neuroscience and related fields.

Workshops addressing controversial issues, open problems, and comparisons of competing approaches are encouraged. The format should be designed to foster debate, rather than a mere series of talks. The selection criteria for Workshop proposals will include scientific excellence, topical relevance and gender diversity.

The Bernstein Conference started out as the annual meeting of the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience and has become the largest annual single-track Computational Neuroscience conference in Europe in recent years.

Satellite Workshop Schedule

September 25, 2018, 2:00 pm - 6:30 pm
September 26, 2018, 8:30 am - noon

Workshop proposals are welcome for either half-day or full-day workshops.

Workshop costs – FINANCIAL SUPPORT

All organizers and speakers of accepted workshops will receive a waiver for the workshop fee. Organizers of accepted workshops additionally receive a waiver for the main conference. Coffee break catering will be provided. Up to 10 selected workshops can receive financial support up to 1.500,00 € each.

The financial support will be transferred to an (institutional) account of the main organizer as a lump-sum, after invoicing. Invoice details will be delivered to the respective grantee. For questions on the procedure please contact Alexandra Stein (e-mail: , phone: +49 (0)761 203 9583).
