Dear colleagues,

We are organising a somewhat unusual workshop this coming May where we still have some seats left. The purpose of the workshop is to gather leading neuroscientists to discuss how a fundamental brain theory could be formulated. Each participating speaker has been given as homework to prepare a talk describing their view on such a theory, and to speculate on aspects where they don’t yet have the answers. The workshop will be a “real” workshop the sense that the invited speakers will work together on formulating a theory, and spend most of the time on discussions.

The workshop is the second in a series, where the outcome of the first workshop (held in September 2016) was published in a Neuron issue published in June 2017: https://www.cell.com/neuron/issue?pii=S0896-6273(16)X0012-8

The confirmed speakers are:

- Adrienne Fairhall, Univ. Washington, Seattle, USA
- Alexa Riehle, CNRS, Marseille, France
- Bing Brunton, Univ. Washington, Seattle, USA
- Gyorgy Buzsaki, NYU, New York, USA
