Cosyne 2017 Call for Workshop Proposals

Cosyne 2017 Workshops will be held on 27 - 28 February 2017 in Snowbird Ski Resort, Snowbird, Utah.



Deadline for pre-proposals: 01 October 2016

Deadline for full proposals: 31 October 2016


WORKSHOP GOALS

A series of workshops will be held after the main Cosyne meeting. 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 below).

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, 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.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

PRE-PROPOSALS

In an effort to coordinate submissions, the organizers are strongly encouraged to submit a pre-proposal by 01 October 2016. 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.

Pre-Proposals should include:


FULL PROPOSALS should include the list of confirmed speakers in addition to components required for a pre-proposal.

Workshop organizer responsibilities include coordinating workshop participation and content, scheduling all speakers and submitting a final schedule for the workshop program, and moderating the discussion. Organizers can be speakers but need not speak depending on scheduling constraints.


SUGGESTIONS

Experience has shown that the best discussions during a workshop are those that arise spontaneously. A good way to foster these is to have short talks and long question periods (e.g. 15+30 minutes), and have plenty of breaks. We recommend fewer than 10 talks.




WORKSHOP COSTS

Detailed registration costs, etc, will be available here.

Please note: Cosyne does NOT provide travel funding for workshop speakers. All workshop speakers are expected to pay for workshop registration fees. Participants are encouraged to register early, in order to qualify for discounted registration rates. One complementary (free) organizer registration is provided per workshop. For workshops with 2 organizers, the free registration can be given to one of the organizers or split evenly between them.
