Objective, Agenda and Participants:
----------------------------------

The 1990's have been declared the Decade of the Mind. Understanding the
mind requires the understanding of a wide variety of topics in
the neurosciences.

This Workshop is part of an ongoing series of workshops being held at
the UT System Center For High Performance Computing; addressing issues
of high performance computing and its role in medicine, dentistry,
allied health disciplines, and public health. Prior workshops have
covered Computational Chemistry and Molecular Design, and Computational
Issues in the Life Sciences and Medicine. Upcoming workshops will
focus on the subject areas of Computational Molecular Biology and Genetics,
Biomechanics, and Physiological Modeling and Simulation.

The purpose of this Workshop On Computational Neurosciences
is to bring together interested scientists
for the purposes of introducing them to state-of-the-art thinking and
applications in the domain of neuroscience. Topics to be discussed range
across the disciplines of neurosimulation, cognitive neuroscience, neural
nets and their theory/application to a variety of problems, methods for
solving numerical problems arising in neurology, learning
abilities and disabilities, and neurological imaging.

Lectures will be presented in a tutorial fashion, and time for questions
and answers will be allowed.

Attendence is open to anyone. A background in the neurosciences is
not required. The size of the workshop is limited due to
seating constraints. It is best to register as soon as possible.

Poster Sessions:
----------------

While no poster sessions are planned, if enough conference
participants indicate a desire to present a poster, we will
make every attempt to accommodate the requests. If you are interested
in presenting a poster presentation at this meeting, please contact
the workshop director.

Conference Proceedings:
----------------------

We will make every attempt to have a publication quality
conference proceedings. All of the speakers have been asked to
submit a paper covering the talk material. The proceedings will
appear as a special issue of the series Advances In Mathematics And
Computers In Medicine, which is part of the International Journal
of Computers and Mathematics With Applications (Pergamon Press).
Individuals wishing to have an appropriate paper included in this
proceedings should contact the workshop director for manuscript
details and deadlines.


Conference Costs and Funding:
-----------------------------

A nominal registration fee of US $50.00 will be charged by 1 April 93, and
US $60.00 after that date. The conference proceedings will be an additional
US $10.00 . The conference registration fee includes luncheon and
refreshments for both days of the workshop.


Accomodations:
-------------

There are a number of very reasonable hotels near the UT System CHPC.
