              COSYNE TUTORIAL SESSION
----------------------------------------------------

This year, Cosyne is hosting its first tutorial session, sponsored by
the Simons Foundation. The tutorial on "Statistical models for neural
data: from GLMs to latent variables" will be given by Jonathan Pillow on
01 March 2018, before the main meeting starts. Space is limited. You can
register for the tutorial when registering for the main meeting. For
details on the tutorial and registration, see Cosyne.org -> Tutorial and
Cosyne.org -> Registration.

                       COSYNE
----------------------------------------------------

The annual Cosyne meeting provides an inclusive forum for the exchange
of empirical and theoretical approaches to problems in systems
neuroscience, in order to understand how neural systems function.

The MAIN MEETING is single-track. A set of invited talks is selected by
the Executive Committee, and additional talks and posters are selected
by the Program Committee, based on submitted abstracts. The WORKSHOPS
feature in-depth discussion of current topics of interest, in a small
group setting. For details on workshop proposals please see below or
visit Cosyne.org -> Workshops.

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, and computation
with spiking networks.

We would like to foster increased participation from experimental groups
as well as computational ones. Please circulate widely and encourage
your students and postdocs to apply.
