=================================================================

Cosyne is an annual meeting providing an inclusive forum for the
exchange of experimental and theoretical approaches to problems in
systems neuroscience. The meeting is expected to draw about 350-400
researchers from a wide variety of disciplines.

The MAIN MEETING is organized in a single track, and consists of both
oral and poster sessions. Some oral presentations are invited (see
below), while others are selected based on short submitted abstracts.
Poster presentations are also selected from the submitted abstracts.

The WORKSHOPS are held in 6-10 parallel sessions, allowing for more
in-depth discussion of specialized topics. A Call for Workshop
Proposals will be sent out shortly.
