Call for Contributions about Neural Network Simulation
Christian Leibold (BCCN Munich, BFNL: Plasticity of neural dynamics, German-US-American Collaboration: Munich - San Diego) organizes a "special issue" of the journal "Network: Computation in Neural Systems" (April 2012).
The special issue's topic is:
"Neural Network Simulation"
Simulation of neural models is increasingly used in neuroscience. It raises a number of issues, such as: how to efficiently simulate large networks, how to describe and share models that are based on different simulators, how to constrain and handle large parameter spaces, and how to cope with the complexity and variety of biological models. In this special issue of Network: Computation in Neural Systems (http://informahealthcare.com/loi/net), original research contributions, reviews, and perspectives on all topics relevant to the simulation of biological neural networks are invited. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Simulation algorithms
- Data structures
- Parallel processing, for example on graphics cards
- Standardization, interfacing, model sharing
- Analysis and interpretation of simulated data
Contributions of reviews or perspectives should be proposed to Romain Brette prior to submission.
Manuscripts should be submitted online via http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ncns, mentioning the special issue in the cover letter.
