Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will consist of selected papers from the 2018 Champalimaud Research Symposium on Quantitative Approaches to Behaviour and Neural Systems, October 23–26, 2018, Lisbon, Portugal. The Champalimaud Research Symposium is an annual international scientific event organized by the Champalimaud Foundation, taking place at its headquarters on the waterfront in Lisbon, Portugal.

The goal of this symposium is to define and address the challenges present in developing quantitative approaches to understanding the behaviour of organisms, the function and structure of their nervous systems, and the emergence of organization in complex adaptive systems. We aim to highlight approaches that combine experimental work with new theoretical frameworks and quantitative analysis, which we hope can reveal new principles on which to build the neuroscience and biology of the future. This Special Edition thus offers the opportunity for meeting attendees to contribute and publish research findings and perspectives in this area.

Primarily, selected papers from the 2018 Champalimaud Research Symposium on Quantitative Approaches to Behaviour and Neural Systems will be considered for publication. The papers submitted and selected for this Special Issue should neither have been previously published nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere, and are subject to a very rigorous peer-review process.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cells is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
