NEXTEN: Envisaging Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience for the next 10 years

May 16-17, 2024
Washington University in St Louis

Theoretical/Computational Neuroscience is currently undergoing a phase of unprecedented growth. Dramatic advances in the ease with which large-scale datasets of behavior, neural activity, connectomic and gene expression information can be collected have coincided with a revolution in the capabilities of Artificial Intelligence-based algorithms to interrogate such datasets. Concurrently, these new datasets are inspiring exciting new developments in mathematical tools for extracting their underlying structure and relationships.

What is the current state of the art in our theoretical/computational understanding of the brain, and what does the future hold?

The Center for Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience at Washington University in St Louis invites you to join an exciting line-up of leaders in the field to address these questions.

  • Confirmed speakers include Adam Kepecs (WashU), Mackenzie Mathis (EPFL), Terry Sejnowski (Salk Institute), Andreas Tolias (Baylor College of Medicine), and Richard Zemel (Columbia University).
  • Abstract submissions for posters are encouraged, and some of these will be selected for short talks.
  • Some travel awards will be available for qualified trainees.
  • The conference will be held in the new 600,000 sq ft Neuroscience Research Building on the Medical School campus, into which ~100 neuroscience labs have recently moved.

The deadline for registration and abstract submission is Wednesday, February 28, 2024. However, due to the size of the auditorium total registrations are limited to 150, and so registration may be closed earlier than Feb 28 if this limit is reached.

Registration costs:

Regular $295

Student $145

Washington University member $50

Registration and abstract submission will open in January 2024. Please check back for details and sign up below to receive emailed updates.
