We announce a 2-day workshop on "Integrated Systems Neuroscience", at the University of Manchester (UK), March 23-24th 2015.

Systems neuroscience has been thrust centre-stage by the extraordinary advances in technology for recording and manipulating neural circuits at single-cell resolution. Yet with this rapid increase in data yield has come formidable challenges in analysing and understanding experimental results. Consequently, a tight integration between experimental and computational neuroscience approaches is increasingly necessary for tackling these challenges. The goal of this workshop is to present the state-of-the-art in integrated systems and computational approaches to key neural circuits, to demonstrate their power and potential.

Each session of the programme will comprise a pair of talks presenting complementary experimental and computational work on the same circuit theme. Breaks between each session will allow for plentiful discussion of the work just seen and how it may translate to other circuits and problems in systems neuroscience. A poster session with wine reception will be held on the first evening.

Speakers include:
Rafal Bogacz (Oxford)
Matteo Carandini (UCL)
Peter Dayan (Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, UCL)
Ken Harris (UCL)
Peter Magill (MRC Anatomical Neuropharmacology Unit, Oxford)
Daniel O'Connor (John Hopkins University)
Michael Orger (Champalimaud Institute, Lisbon)
Srdjan Ostojic (Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris)
Alex Thiele (University of Newcastle)
Gasper Tkacik (IST Austria)
