Organized by Ann HermundstadSandro Romani, Tosif Ahamed and Michele Nardin, this workshop is intended as a "by the students, for the students" meeting. Participants will include only students and postdocs doing theoretical neuroscience research.

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 white board style 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 actively contribute to discussions. 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. 

Janelia will cover the cost of accommodation, meals and reasonable travel expenses for accepted participants. We especially encourage applications from women and those who identify with groups that are traditionally underrepresented in science.

Applications are closed.
