NEST Conference 2018 #NEST2018

Dear colleagues!

It is a great pleasure to invite everyone interested in large-scale neural network simulation, particularly current and potential users of NEST, the Neural Simulation Tool (, to the

    NEST Conference 2018

to be held on

    25/26 June 2018 (Monday/Tuesday, lunch to lunch)

on the beautiful campus of the Norwegian University of Life Sciences at Ås, 30km south of Oslo.

The NEST Conference provides an opportunity for the NEST Community to meet, exchange success stories, swap advice, learn about current developments in and around NEST spiking network simulation and its application. We would like you to share your experiences made and results obtained with NEST during the conference.
