Meeting Update
29th Annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting (CNS*2020)
Melbourne, Australia
July 18–22, 2020

In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation in many countries, the previously announced deadlines are extended as follows:

Deadline for submission of abstracts, in case oral presentation or travel award is requested: April 29
Deadline for submission of abstracts, in case poster presentation is requested: May 6
Deadline for travel award applications (main meeting): April 29

Expected date of notification of abstract acceptance: May 13
Expected date of notification of oral presentation: May 27
Expected date of notification of travel award: May 27

An update on the expected size of the meeting: As of March 12, we have received 170 registrations for CNS*2020. This indicates a meeting with approximately 300 participants, going by the registration patterns from previous years. We consider it likely that the final number of participants will exceed this estimate, provided the current travel uncertainties resolve.

We understand that this is a fluid situation and will continue to update the membership. In case travel bans are not lifted in time for the meeting or in time for visas to be approved, OCNS will provide full registration refunds to affected members. For presenters unable to attend CNS*2020 due to a COVID-19 travel ban, we will make every effort to facilitate your remote participation in the meeting. For up-to-date information, please follow
