================================================================= Computational and Systems Neuroscience (Cosyne) MAIN MEETING WORKSHOPS Feb 28 - Mar 3, 2013 Mar 4 - 5, 2013 Salt Lake City, Utah Snowbird Ski Resort, Utah ================================================================= REGISTRATION AND HOTELS: Online registration is currently open. Hotel booking is currently open. Early registration deadline: Jan 31, 2013, 11.59PM EST Deadline for discounted hotel rates (main meeting, Salt Lake City): Feb 6, 2013 For more detailed information, please visit INVITED SPEAKERS: William Bialek (Princeton) Kwabena Boahen (Stanford) Carlos Brody (Princeton) Ila Fiete (U Texas, Austin) Yves Fregnac (CNRS-UNIC) Deborah Gordon (Stanford) Eve Marder (Brandeis) J Anthony Movshon (NYU) Paul Schrater (U Minnesota) Terrence Sejnowski (Salk) Barbara Shinn-Cuningham (Boston U) 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: The awake and anesthetized cortex – similar or different? Beyond optogenetics: new approaches for systems neuroscience. Dendritic computation in neural circuits. Furry statisticians – how rodents infer the meaningful properties of unreliable environments. Large-scale neuronal simulations – science, languages and platforms. Neural mechanisms for orienting decisions across the animal kingdom. Neural mechanisms of foraging decisions. A new chapter in the study of functional maps in visual cortex. Priors in perception, decision-making and physiology. Reticular microcircuits: from structure to function. Reward-based decision-making. Understanding the brain by building one: New neuroscience on VLSI hardware. Why does neocortex need six layers and even more cell types? ORGANIZING COMMITTEE: General Chairs: Jonathan Pillow (UT Austin) and Nicole Rust (Penn) Program Chairs: Marlene Cohen (U Pittsburgh) and Peter Latham (UCL) Workshop Chairs: Jessica Cardin (Yale) and Tatyana Sharpee (Salk) Communications Chair: Kanaka Rajan (Princeton) EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE: Anne Churchland (CSHL) Zachary Mainen (Champalimaud) Alexandre Pouget (U Geneva) Anthony Zador (CSHL)
