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.

When preparing an abstract, authors should be aware that not all
abstracts can be accepted for the meeting, due to space constraints.
Abstracts will be selected based on the clarity with which they convey
the substance, significance, and originality of the work to be presented.

For details on submitting abstracts and workshop proposals please visit

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.


Applications will open on 08 Dec 2014 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, under-represented minorities, students who are attending
the meeting together with a mentor, and authors of submitted Cosyne
abstracts. For details on applying, see
