Training in Neuroinformatics 2015 – Call for Letters of Intent

The International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF) is
committed to supporting training in neuroinformatics. INCF now invites
applications to run short courses lasting between two and seven days on any
aspects of neuroinformatics at a level suitable for PhD students and
beyond. The courses should be held in English and open to any researcher
interested in neuroinformatics. International participation of faculty and
students should be encouraged. The INCF offers financial support to
successful proposals, which could cover “hands on training” experiences,
venue, travel and accommodation costs for a small number of speakers and
participants. Financial support from other sources is encouraged. One
condition of funding is that the course material be made available
publicly, through INCF. Courses to be funded in this Call are envisaged to
take place in 2015. Our aim is to support the development of new courses or
the re‐design of existing courses to incorporate/extend neuroinformatics
coverage. Funding is available for one year only.

The Letter of Intent must include information about

Target audience
Justification for why INCF should fund this course
Course description (up to 250 words).
Dissemination plan
Speakers - a preliminary list would be helpful
Course duration
Proposed dates and location
Estimated number of participants
Draft budget including the amount to be sought from the INCF

The closing date for Letters of Intent is **7th March 2014**.  Letters
should be sent in PDF format per email to training-proposals at incf.org. The
authors of the most promising Letters of Intent will be invited by end of
March 2014 to submit a full proposal, with a deadline of 30th June 2014.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Malin Sandström (
malin.sandstrom at incf.org) on behalf of the INCF Training Committee.
