Presented under the auspices of the DIMACS/BioMaPS/MB Center Special Focus on Information Processing in Biology.
This special focus is jointly sponsored by the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS), the Biological, Mathematical, and Physical Sciences Interfaces Institute for Quantitative Biology (BioMaPS), and the Rutgers Center for Molecular Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry (MB Center).
Further information including instructions for registration may be obtained from the conference web site: http://www.ise.ufl.edu/cao/neuroscience2006/ or by email from email@example.com. Proposals for special sessions, contributed papers and invited speakers are welcome and may be submitted via this email address.
DIMACS and Center for Applied Optimization (CAO) cordially invite you to participate in the "Conference on Data Mining, Systems Analysis and Optimization in Neuroscience".
The purpose of this conference is to explore new methods in experimental and quantitative neuroscience. Current neuroscience methods have resulted in massive amounts of data, but traditional data-processing and quantitative methods are not sophisticated enough to exploit this new flood of information. There is an increasing number of modern research efforts in data mining, systems analysis and optimization research to advance methods needed to process the large spatial and temporal data arising in experimental and quantitative neuroscience. This conference is designed is to bring together scientists, engineers, neurobiologists and clinicians, with scientific interest and expertise in the human brain, in an attempt to share knowledge, ideas, and scientific methodology.
Researchers and practitioners working in related areas are invited to submit abstracts for possible conference presentations. Those who submit abstracts will be notified regarding whether a presentation based on the abstract can be scheduled for the conference. Accepted abstracts will be printed in the conference program and speakers will have approximately thirty minutes to present their material. The conference facilities will have projectors for presenting material from a laptop computer, as well as overhead projectors.
To submit an abstract, please email the title and abstract to W. Art Chaovalitwongse (firstname.lastname@example.org) by December 15, 2005. Full papers presented at the conference will be considered for publication in special issues of international journals.
