================================================================= Computational and Systems Neuroscience (Cosyne) MAIN MEETING WORKSHOPS Feb 23 - 26, 2012 Feb 27 - 28, 2012 Salt Lake City, Utah Snowbird Ski Resort, Utah ================================================================= REGISTRATION AND HOTELS: Online registration is currently open. Hotel booking is currently open. Early registration deadline: Feb 1, 2012 Deadline for discounted hotel rates (main meeting, Salt Lake City): Feb 1, 2012 Extended deadline for discounted hotel rates (workshops, Snowbird): Jan 26, 2012 For more detailed information, please visit INVITED SPEAKERS: John Assad Michael Brecht Emery Brown Nicolas Brunel Stefano Fusi Tom Griffiths Takao Hensch Zach Mainen Fred Rieke Rebecca Saxe Noam Sobel Sarah Woolley THE MEETING: 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. WORKSHOP TITLES: Coding and computation in visual short-term memory. Perception and decision making in rodents (two day workshop). Neuromodulation: beyond the wiring diagram, adding functional flexibility to neural circuits. Is it time for theory in olfaction? (two day workshop). Understanding heterogeneous cortical activity: the quest for structure and randomness. Humans, neurons, and machines: how can psychophysics, physiology, and modeling collaborate to ask better questions in biological vision? Inhibitory synaptic plasticity. Neurophysiological and computational mechanisms of categorization. Sensorimotor processes reflected in spatiotemporal patterns of neuronal activity. Functions of identified cortical microcircuits. Characterizing neural responses to structured and naturalistic stimuli. Promise and peril: genetic approaches for systems neuroscience revisited. ORGANIZING COMMITTEE: General Chairs: Rachel Wilson (Harvard) and Jim DiCarlo (MIT) Program Chairs: Nicole Rust (Penn) and Jonathan Pillow (UT Austin) Workshop Chairs: Brent Doiron (Pittsburgh) and Jess Cardin (Yale) Publicity Chair: Mark Histed (Harvard Medical School) EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE: Anthony Zador (CSHL) Alexandre Pouget (U Rochester) Zachary Mainen (Champalimaud Neuroscience Programme)
