Neural Coding, Computation and Dynamics (NCCD)

September 15-18, 2007

Hossegor, France

This is the first in a series of biennual meetings focusing on topics in theoretical and experimental neuroscience. The topic this year is "what do we do with all the neural data we are collecting?". We will have experimental and theoretical talks, with the latter focusing both on methods of data analysis and on high level theories that require large data sets to test. The meeting will be small (~70 people). About half the talks will be invited and half contributed, and there will be poster sessions on two of the nights. To foster the strong interactions we believe are so important for this field, lunch and dinner will be provided, and there will be plenty of time set aside for discussion.
