The fifth Bernstein Conference on Computational Neuroscience (BCCN), is going to be held in Frankfurt, Germany. Frankfurt, the Roman Empire's coronation city, medieval city republic, hosting Germany's first democratic parliament, and in current times Europe's economic centre and traffic hub, is one of Germany's leading cities.

Certainly one of Europe's most interesting cities in terms of skylines, Frankfurt is home to five structures that are over 200 metres tall. A view of skyline at night-time is shown here.

The contrast here is interesting: The city combines low-rise, high-density traditional European architecture (some of which is over 1,000 years old), with modern architecture. Shown below is Roemer Square, which forms part of the "Alt-Stadt" or old-town Frankfurt.

The conference will take place in the "Neues Hörsaalzentrum", the new lecture center for the Goethe University, Frankfurt. The center is situated in the "Campus Westend" and is equipped with all the modern facilities.

We look forward to seeing you in Frankfurt.
