We look forward to an exciting meeting, which is a timely opportunity for us to appreciate as a community the vitality, the growth, and the impact on neuroscience of our research and training activities. We are grateful for the continued support of the Sloan and Swartz Foundations in difficult times, and are pleased to be hosting their representatives at the meeting.
We have an exciting list of invited speakers and a delegation of 10 researchers from the Bernstein Network for Computational Neuroscience in Germany. In our planning, we have incorporated recommendations discussed in the last Directors' Lunch as well as additional ones from the sponsoring foundations. On this site you will find a number of organizational details we would like to share with you.
