                  COSYNE TUTORIALS

Cosyne 2019 will host two tutorial sessions on 28 February 2019. For
details on Cosyne tutorials please visit Cosyne.org -> Tutorials.

  Cosyne 2019 Tutorial session sponsored by the Simons Foundation
  Topic: Bayesian modeling of behavior
  Speaker: Wei Ji Ma
  Wei Ji Ma is Associate Professor of Neural Science and Psychology at
NYU. His lab studies decision-making across domains, including
perception, attention, working memory, social cognition, and planning,
using a combination of human behavioral experiments and computational

  Allen Institute tutorial session
  Topic: Navigating the Allen Brain Observatory
  This tutorial will introduce participants to the scientific
foundations, data parameters, and practical skills for using the Allen
Brain Observatory in computational neuroscience research.


Cosyne Mentoring Forum provides a platform for discussions among Cosyne
participants, particularly for help with composing abstracts for the
meeting and getting feedback before submission. The forum is intended to
be a place to connect with other computational and systems
neuroscientists. Forum members are encouraged to share advice on
everything from writing a great Cosyne abstract to navigating a job
search. See Cosyne.org -> Mailing lists for details on how to subscribe
and post to the forum.


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.

This year 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.

When preparing an abstract, authors should be aware that not all
abstracts can be accepted for the meeting, due to space constraints.
Abstracts will be selected based on the clarity with which they convey
the substance, significance, and originality of the work to be presented.
