Cosyne 2018 Call for Workshop Proposals

Cosyne 2018 Workshops will be held on 05--06 March 2018 in Beaver Run Resort, Breckenridge, Colorado.



PRE-PROPOSAL DEADLINE: 14 October 2017

FULL PROPOSAL DEADLINE: 10 November 2017


PRE-PROPOSALS

In an effort to coordinate submissions, the organizers are encouraged to submit a pre-proposal by 14 October 2017. Pre-proposals will be shared among submitters. Pre-proposals are not mandatory but workshops with a pre-proposal will have priority. The organizers may submit the full proposal by its deadline.

A series of workshops will be held after the main Cosyne meeting (www.cosyne.org). The goal is to provide an informal forum for the discussion of important research questions and challenges. Controversial issues, open problems, comparisons of competing approaches, and alternative viewpoints are encouraged.

The overarching goal of all workshops should be the integration of empirical and theoretical approaches, in an environment that fosters collegial discussion and debate. Preference will be given to proposals that differ substantially in content, scope, and/or approach from workshops of recent years (examples available at www.cosyne.org -> Workshops).

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to: sensory processing; motor planning and control; functional neural circuits; motivation, reward and decision making; learning and memory; adaptation and plasticity; neural coding; neural circuitry and network models; and methods in computational or systems neuroscience.

In order to foster discussion within Workshops and reduce overlap between workshops, organizers should inform invited speakers that a single person should not speak in more than one of the Workshops taking place on the same day.
