Full program details can be found in the NC2016 Conference Book which can be downloaded here. Participants will receive a printed copy of the book at the conference.

Reviewed papers will appear in special issues of two journals - Biosystems and Biological Cybernetics. The details of the submission procedure and deadlines will be given here. The expected deadline for submission is December 15, 2016. The number of slots in each journal is limited. Therefore, the prospective authors are  requested to confirm their intention to submit a paper by 30 September 2016 by email to, with the tentative title of the intended contribution, and to indicate, which of the two journals they prefer and if their choice is exclusive.

For the special issue of Biological Cybernetics we welcome combined experimental-theoretical contributions and purely theoretical contributions of high quality. We specifically encourage „prospect“-type articles that provide an outlook into future research. Biological Cybernetics has a high reputation in the field and stands for a long tradition in biological information processing and in particular information processing in nervous systems. This is also expressed in the journal’s subtitle - Advances in Computational Neuroscience.

In line with the tradition of Neural Coding workshops, delegates of NC2016 are also invited to consider submitting full high quality contributions for a planned special issue of BioSystems. Neural Coding meetings and NC2016 in particular bring together computational and experimental neuroscientists that are interested in fundamentals of neural processing and coding, in both vertebrates and invertebrate systems. Topics include sensory coding, perception, plasticity and learning, and the neural control of behavior, which all fall within the wider aims and scope of BioSystems. Mechanisms are explored at the single neuron and the network level. Submitted manuscripts will be rigorously peer-reviewed.

Please note that due to the agreement with the editors-in-chief, the minimal and maximal number of submissions to each journal is limited. Thus if needed, we will provide you with a feedback on which journal your contribution should be submitted to.
