Since 2013, the Bernstein Conference hosts pre-conference workshops. They 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. Workshop formats should be designed to foster debate beyond a mere series of talks.

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.

Workshop time frame:
September 12, 2017, 13:00 - 18:00
September 13, 2017, 9:00 - 12:30

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


For all accepted workshops the registration is free of charge for organizers and speakers. Organizers will also receive a waiver for the main conference fee. New this year: From the accepted workshops a maximum of ten workshops will be selected to each receive financial support of up to 1.500,00 €.


Workshop proposals must contain:

1) Workshop Title
2) Concise description of workshop topic  
3) List of potential speakers indicating speaker commitment

The Workshop Proposal form can be downloaded here

Deadline for submission of proposals: March 29, 2017

Accommodation and Hotel Reservation:

We strongly recommend early room booking.  The number of available accommodation is limited due to several concurrent events. We arranged for room contingents in a variety of hotels that you may book by yourself by email or phone. Please follow the instructions at our Accommodations Web-site. We strongly encourage participants to share rooms and to book rooms as a group. Groups of three or four are possible if you book a suite.  The room contingent contains a set of suits and apartments. We emphasize that it will be very difficult to book accommodation beyond the expiration dates.
