The sixth international workshop on Statistical Analysis of Neural Data
(SAND6) will take place May 31-June 2, 2012, in Pittsburgh, PA.

Partial travel support is available. Requests for financial support 
should be made by

There will be talks by senior investigators and junior investigators. 
The talks by young
investigators (graduate student or postdoc/faculty within 5 years of 
Ph.D.) will be selected
on a competitive basis. Any young investigator interested in presenting 
their work as
a talk should submit an abstract by FEBRUARY 28.  Please see our website:


There will also be a poster session, to which all participants are 
invited to contribute.
Talks and posters may involve new methodology, investigation of existing 
methods, or
application of state-of-the-art analytical techniques.

Here are the confirmed keynote speakers:

     Carlos Brody (Princeton)
     Charles Gray (Montana State)
     Nancy Kopell (Boston University)
     Chris Moore (Brown)
     Shigeru Shinomoto (Kyoto)
     Irene Tracey (Oxford)
     Nathan Urban (Carnegie Mellon)
     Van Weeden (MGH, Harvard)

This workshop series is concerned with analysis of neural signals from 
various sources,
including EEG, fMRI, MEG, 2-Photon, and extracellular recordings. It 
aims to define
important problems in neuronal data analysis and useful strategies for 
attacking them;
foster communication between experimental neuroscientists and those 
trained in statisti-
cal and computational methods encourage young researchers, including 
graduate students,
to present their work; and expose young researchers to important 
challenges and oppor-
tunities in this interdisciplinary domain, while providing a small 
meeting atmosphere to
facilitate the interaction of young researchers with senior colleagues.

The organizers are Emery Brown, Elizabeth Buffalo, Rob Kass, Liam 
Paninski, and
Jonathan Victor.
