Organized by Ann HermundstadJames FitzgeraldSandro RomaniRan Darshan  and Carsen Stringer, this workshop is intended as a "by the students, for the students" meeting. Participants will include only students and postdocs doing theoretical neuroscience research.

Over the course of the week, attendees will give 20-minute research talks on their work, as well as in-depth 45-minute tutorials on theoretical techniques relevant to their research. Tutorials will be presented on the white board to encourage uninhibited and detailed technical discussion, a deeper understanding of the diverse techniques used in modern theoretical neuroscience, and hopefully a stronger sense of community. We see this as a unique learning opportunity for everyone involved and intend for it to be an enjoyable experience.

We are interested in those who will be able to follow the intense schedule and contribute to discussions, and we especially encourage applications from female scientists. In order to maintain a small group atmosphere, allowing for extensive interactions and presentations by everyone, space at the workshop is limited.  All participants are expected to stay for the duration. 

This workshop will run alongside our Junior Scientist Workshop on Mechanistic Cognitive Neuroscience, with joint events that encourage informal conversations between both groups. We hope such interactions with help participants bridge the conceptual and pragmatic gaps between theory and experiment.

Janelia will cover the cost of accommodation, meals and reasonable travel expenses.
