COSYNE 11 Workshops
Workshops at Computational and Systems Neuroscience 2011
COSYNE 11 Workshops40.581895 -111.655202
A series of workshops will be held after the main Cosyne meeting. The goal is to provide an informal forum for the discussion of important research questions and challenges. Controversial issues, open problems, comparisons of competing approaches, and alternative viewpoints are encouraged.
The overarching goal of all workshops should be the integration of empirical and theoretical approaches, in an environment that fosters collegial discussion and debate. Preference will be given to proposals that differ in content, scope, and/or approach from workshops of recent years (examples available at cosyne.org).
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to: sensory processing; motor planning and control; multisensory integration; motivation, reward and decision making; learning and memory; adaptation and plasticity; neural coding; neural circuitry and network models; dendritic processing; and methods in computational or systems neuroscience.
- There will be 4-8 workshops/day, running in parallel.
- Each workshop is expected to draw between 15 and 80 people.
- The workshops will be split into morning (8:00-11:00 AM) and afternoon (4:30-7:30 PM) sessions.
- Workshops will be held at Snowbird, a ski resort located 30 miles (typically less than an hour) from the Salt Lake City airport.
- Buses from the main conference will be provided.
