Welcoming Remarks
Five decades of brain research have led to the emergence of a new field, which spans the entire spectrum of cognition from synaptic dynamics to social interactions, and which is combined by the conceptions of nonlinear neurodynamics operating simultaneously at and across all scales. A new kind of scientists is emerging, schooled in multiple academic disciplines, comfortable in working with data from different levels, and conversant with the mathematical and computational tools that are essential to cross boundaries. Cognition in its essence is dynamic and multilayered, and pursuit of new clues inevitably leads from one layer to the next, both reductionist and holistic. A trend to study cognition from the point of view of neurodynamics has emerged as a result of the current, rapid developments taking place in nonlinear dynamics and cognitive science.

In order to promote the integration of cognitive science and neurodynamics as a whole, the International Conference on Cognitive Neurodynamics is held biennially since 2007 under the support of the editorial board meeting of Cognitive Neurodynamics (Springer). The 1st conference, ICCN 2007, was held in Shanghai, and the 2nd conference, ICCN 2009, was held in Hangzhow, both in China.

The 3rd ICCN first goes over the sea to be held at Hilton Niseko Village, Hokkaido, Japan in June 9-13, 2011. The organizing committee sincerely hopes that the conference at the foothill of Mt. Yotei will provide an enjoyable forum for scientists and engineers working in this exciting area to review the latest progress, and to exchange their experience and ideas.
