Detailed registration costs, etc, are available here.
Typically Cosyne does not provide travel funding for workshop speakers. While workshop speakers are expected to pay for workshop registration fees, this year thanks to a grant from the Burroughs Wellcome fund will be able to offer some travel support for workshop presenters who are postdoctoral fellows or graduate students working at the interface between physics and neuroscience. 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.
COSYNE 2014 WORKSHOP CHAIRS:
Robert Froemke (New York University) and Tatyana Sharpee (Salk Institute)
