CRCNS (Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience, is a research programme managed by a consortium of research funders in the US (NSF and NIH), in France (ANR), Germany (BMBF) and Israel (BSF), which supports computational neuroscience by launching each year a joint transatlantic call for proposals.

This year's CRCNS conference takes place in Paris (France) from October 24-26, 2016 and is hosted by the Institut Pasteur. All attendees are invited to participate in plenary and break-out sessions to present research advances (October 24 & 25, main meeting) and to formulate the future challenges and research priorities in the domain of computational neuroscience (October 26, workshop).

The conference brings together the researchers of the CRCNS funded projects and the funder programme officers. The main objective is to promote exchanges between researchers in the domain and to facilitate the follow-up of the projects by the funders. Moreover the conference will contribute to the long term shaping of the CRCNS programme and calls.

For the first time the conference is organised in Europe. The Programme Committee seizes this opportunity to address a wider audience and foster transatlantic collaboration. The conference is open to any researcher or policy representative interested in computational neuroscience (it is not limited to CRCNS programme participants). Moreover, the programme proposes sessions on the European and US landscape and facilities, and related funding opportunities.
