From 9 AM to 6 PM on Thursday, July 20, 2017, a workshop on Reaction diffusion modeling for neurobiology will be held in connection with the CNS 2017 meeting in Antwerp, Belgium. Among the many speakers will be Bill Lytton and Robert McDougal, who will probably have something to say about NEURON's RxD (reaction diffusion) module. This workshop will be a great opportunity to learn the latest about the approaches used by advanced simulation tools such as MCell, MOOSE, NEURON, NeuroRD and others to deal with models that involve reaction diffusion, and the kinds of scientific questions that are being studied with these tools.

The 2016 meeting of the Society for Neuroscience will include two satellite sessions that are highly relevant to modelers.
- a one day NEURON course from 9 AM to 5 PM on Friday, Nov. 11
- a workshop on the Neuroscience Gateway Portal from 9 AM to noon on Saturday, Nov. 12. The NSG is an NSF-supported resource that offers modelers free CPU time and a convenient user interface for running parallel simulations or performing other computationally intensive tasks on high performance hardware.
The registration deadline for both of these events is Friday, Oct. 28, Friday, Oct. 2, is the registration deadline for both of these events, but space is limited so you should sign up early. See https://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/courses for more information and links to registration forms.
Two events of particular interest to modelers will be presented as satellite sessions to the 2015 SFN meeting in Chicago:
- a practical introduction to NEURON on Friday, Oct. 16 from 9 AM to 5 PM.
- a workshop on the Neuroscience Gateway Portal on Saturday, Oct. 17 from 9 AM to Noon. The NSG makes it easy for modelers to run parallel simulations on high performance hardware by eliminating most technical and administrative barriers (it even gives away free CPU time).
Friday, Oct. 2, is the registration deadline for both of these events, but you should sign up early because space is limited. See courses for more information and links to registration forms.
With the 2015 NEURON Summer Course ready to start just a bit more than a week from now, we're already getting ready for the course that we will be presenting in Chicago at the 2015 SFN meeting in November. The official announcement will go out shortly before registration opens for the SFN meeting.
