   Applications are now open for for travel grants to attend the
conference. Each awardee will receive at least $500 to help offset the
costs of travel, registration, and accommodations. Larger grants may be
available to those traveling from outside North America. Special
consideration is given to scientists who have not previously attended
the meeting, underrepresented minorities, students who are attending the
meeting together with a mentor, and authors of submitted Cosyne
abstracts. For details on applying, see

The annual Cosyne meeting provides an inclusive forum for the exchange
of empirical and theoretical approaches to problems in systems
neuroscience, in order to understand how neural systems function.

The MAIN MEETING is single-track. A set of invited talks are selected by
the Executive Committee, and additional talks and posters are selected
by the Program Committee, based on submitted abstracts. The WORKSHOPS
feature in-depth discussion of current topics of interest, in a small
group setting.

Cosyne topics include but are not limited to: neural coding, natural
scene statistics, dendritic computation, neural basis of persistent
activity, nonlinear receptive field mapping, representations of time and
sequence, reward systems, decision-making, synaptic plasticity, map
formation and plasticity, population coding, attention, and computation
with spiking networks.
