Dear Colleagues!

We are looking forward to an exciting 

	NEST Conference 2019 at NMBU, Ås, Norway on 24-25 June 2019

with talks covering a wide range of topics from  simulation technology to large-scale network simulations as shown below.

Please register at



	Wednesday, 15 May 2019

We still have a few slots for conference posters available, so you are still welcome to submit your poster until 15 May. Please see the conference website for instructions.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Ås in June!
