This will be the fourth in a series of Janelia-hosted meetings on this intriguing insect brain region. Recent experimental results from studies in a variety of insects have significantly advanced our knowledge of the anatomical circuitry, activity patterns and behavioral involvement of central complex neurons. This meeting brings together a cross-section of researchers studying the central complex and associated insect brain regions. It will feature theme-focused sessions with short talks, selected from submitted abstracts.  As with the previous such meeting, this edition will also involve a mix of vertebrate researchers and modelers using experimental and computational approaches to studying topics of potential relevance to the central complex, such as action selection, motor control and navigation.
