Call for Papers: ICMNS 2017

We are happy to announce the organization of a thematic series of The Journal of Mathematical Neuroscience, which will feature articles based on work presented at the Third Annual International Conference on Mathematical Neuroscience (Boulder CO: May 30 to June 2, 2017). The deadline for article submission is October 31, 2017.

This special issue will bring together the broad range of topics discussed at the meeting in the form of Research articles or Tutorial papers. We had a very successful day of Tutorials detailing topics from stochastic hybrid systems to information theory to plasticity. The community would benefit from having these ideas brought together in multiple articles, so we are soliciting the tutorial speakers and others for summary articles that would broadly disseminate these educational background materials. Note, even participants that were not Tutorial speakers may submit Tutorial papers, if they can assemble a helpful summary of a new method in mathematical neuroscience. In addition, we are interesting in receiving Research articles inspired by work discussed at the meeting. 

Topics may include, but are not limited to: stochastic dynamics and mean field methods; spatiotemporal dynamics; data-driven modeling; network connectivity and dynamics; neural coding; oscillations and synchrony; plasticity and learning; and statistical descriptions of stochastic models.

We hope very much you will consider submitting to this Special Issue!

Submission instructions:
Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have read the Submission Guidelines for The Journal of Mathematical Neuroscience. The complete manuscript should be submitted through The Journal of Mathematical Neuroscience submission system. To ensure that you submit to the thematic series please select the appropriate section in the drop-down menu during the 'Additional Information' stage of submission. Please also indicate within your cover letter that you wish your manuscript to be considered as part of the Third Annual International Conference on Mathematical Neurosciences Thematic series. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer-review and accepted articles will be published in the journal as a collection.

Deadline for submissions:
October 31, 2017.

Additional Information:
Submissions will also benefit from the usual advantages of open access publication:

  • Rapid publication: Online submission, electronic peer review and production make the process of publishing your article simple and efficient
  • High visibility and international readership in your field: Open access publication ensures high visibility and maximum exposure for your work - anyone with online access can read your article
  • No space constraints: Publishing online means unlimited space for figures, extensive data and video footage
  • Authors retain copyright, licensing the article under a Creative Commons license: articles can be freely redistributed and reused as long as the article is correctly attributed
