*About Cosyne*

The annual Cosyne meeting provides an inclusive forum for the exchange of
experimental and theoretical/computational approaches to problems in systems

The first Cosyne meeting, held in 2004 at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory,
drew over 350 participants. Since 2005, the meeting has been held in Salt
Lake City, Utah. It has attracted a growing number of participants, from
nearly 400 in 2005 to almost 500 in 2008.

To encourage interdisciplinary interactions, the main meeting is arranged in
a 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.

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, computation with spiking networks.

The abstracts of the 2009 meeting will be published by Frontiers in Systems
Neuroscience <http://frontiersin.org/systemsneuroscience/>. Similar to the
abstracts of the Society for Neuroscience meeting, these abstracts are
citeable, but they are not full-length proceedings and therefore do not
preclude further publication.
