			First call for papers: 

		Information Theory and the Brain II

		To be held on the 20-21st of September, 
		Headland Hotel, Newquay, Cornwall, England.

	     http://www.mrc-bbc.ox.ac.uk/~itb2/conference.html

This is the sequel to the conference held in Stirling, Scotland last
year. Presentations on any topic relating ideas from either information
theory or statistics to the operation of the brain are welcomed. It is
hoped that pleasant surroundings will help to maintain an informal
atmosphere.

This year the conference will be held in the Cornish town of
Newquay. Apart from being one of the best areas for surfing in Europe,
the surrounding countryside is amongst the most beautiful in
Britain. The conference will be held in the spectacular Headland Hotel
right next to the famous Fistral Beach and in mid September the water
is at its warmest, the surf is starting to get larger, and the summer
holiday crowds have headed home.

Registration will be 40 pounds (about $60 U.S.) with the participants
expected to find their own accommodation. This varies in price from as low
as 5 pounds (for the most basic) upwards. Accommodation in the summer can
be hard to find but by the 20th, most summer holidays have finished and
the situation is much better. More information on accommodation, and on
travel to Newquay, can be found via the above mentioned web page.
