Organized by Shaul Druckmann, James Fitzgerald, Ann Hermundstad, Sandro Romani and Herve Rouault, 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 present their own work, as well as a more in depth tutorial on the techniques used in their research. The goal is to encourage uninhibited and detailed technical discussion among young theoreticians, 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.

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

APPLICATION DEADLINE: JUNE 29, 2017 (11:59 pm).
