COSYNE2015: Meeting Announcement and Call for Abstracts


        Computational and Systems Neuroscience (Cosyne)

        MAIN MEETING                WORKSHOPS
        Mar 5 - Mar 8, 2015         Mar 9 - Mar 10, 2015
        Salt Lake City, Utah        Snowbird Ski Resort, Utah



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.

This year we would like to foster increased participation from
experimental groups as well as computational ones. Please circulate
widely and encourage your students and postdocs to apply.
Please note that the main Cosyne 2015 meeting will take place in a
different venue (Hilton Salt Lake City Center) one week later than
usual, see www.cosyne.org for details.
