Sensory Coding & Natural Environment is a continuation of a successful Gordon Research conference series of the same name, focused on the fields of perception, neural coding, natural scene statistics, and interaction with natural environments. This meeting has traditionally drawn together scientists at the interface of neuroscience, physics, engineering, psychology and machine learning. In addition to the interdisciplinary emphasis and the focus on searching for principles that extend across a range of sensory modalities and organisms, one of the strong points of the meeting has been to allow ample time for informal discussions. Participants are invited to present their research in poster sessions and contributed talks. See http://ist.ac.at/scne2012/ for details.

*** Due to a limited number of possible participants, priority will be given to early applications. ***

Note: “Neural Coding 2012” (http://nc2012.biomed.cas.cz/) is to be held in Prague just PRIOR to this meeting, while the annual “Bernstein Conference 2012” (http://www.bccn2012.de/) is to be held in Munich just AFTER the meeting, allowing the participants to plan a combined visit.

Please circulate this email to students, postdocs and colleagues who might be interested.
