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

Jeffrey T. Fort Neuroscience Research Building, 4370 Duncan Ave, St. Louis, Missouri 63110

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.

Registration now open!

Registration and abstract submission is open for non-Washington University members through February 28, 2024. WashU members can register from March 1 – March 15, 2024.
