This intensive multi-day course is designed for those who are planning to use NEURON in neuroscience research or teaching, or already have active modeling projects that involve NEURON. The course has two components.

NEURON Fundamentals
presents what you need to know to build and work with models of individual neurons and networks of neurons, and introduces parallel simulation. It is suitable for users at all levels of expertise.
Parallel Simulation with NEURON
is for users who already know how to write hoc or Python code for NEURON and now want to adapt existing models, or create new ones, that can be simulated on parallel hardware. Special attention will be paid to strategies for debugging, and measuring and improving performance.

Both components combine lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises. Each day will run from 9 AM to 5 PM and will include a block of free time in which participants may work on projects of their own choosing, with expert help near at hand.

Individuals may apply for one or both components of the course, depending on their interests and expertise. Space is limited, and applications will be considered in the order received. The application deadline is Friday, May 20, 2016. No applications will be accepted after that date, and there will be no on-site registration.

Registration is subject to approval by the course's faculty. Applicants will be notified as soon as they have been approved for registration, and are expected to pay the appropriate registration fee by Friday, May 20, 2016.

To help guide selection of participants and fine tuning of the course curriculum, each applicant is required to provide a short statement (1 page maximum) that includes
