Computational and Systems Neuroscience 2004
March 24-March 28, 2004
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
Cosyne will provide an inclusive forum for the exchange of ideas experimental and theoretical approaches to problems in systems neuroscience. The meeting is expected to draw about 200-300 researchers from a wide variety of disciplines.
Cosyne evolved from the smaller, invitation-only NIC workshops held since 1996. Cosyne topics include but are not limited to: information theory; neural coding; natural scene statistics; dendritic computation; neural basis of persistent activity; nonlinear receptive field mapping; representations of time and sequence; reward systems; synaptic plasticity; map formation and plasticity; population coding; attention; computation with spiking networks;
This single-track meeting will consist of both oral and poster sessions. Some oral presentations will be invited, while others will be drawn from short submitted abstracts. Poster presentations will be drawn from submitted abstracts. Cold Spring Harbor provides on-campus housing and meals, and ample time will be provided for informal discussion outside of the sessions.
There are several Satellite workshops.

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) is a very scenic site located right on the water. It is 35 miles from Manhattan, and easily accessed from Kennedy, Laguardia and Macarthur airports. CSHL has an international reputation as the host to more than a dozen meetings per year (see CSHL meetings page).
