The second Integrated Systems Neuroscience Workshop, 7-8th September 2017, at The University of Manchester
Systems neuroscience has been thrust centre-stage by the extraordinary advances in technology for recording and manipulating neural circuits at single-cell resolution.
Yet with this rapid increase in data yield has come formidable challenges in analysing and understanding experimental results. Consequently, a tight integration between experimental and computational neuroscience approaches is increasingly necessary for tackling these challenges.
The goal of this workshop is to present the state-of-the-art in integrated systems and computational approaches to key neural circuits, to demonstrate their power and potential.

Each session of the programme will comprise a pair of talks where both speakers are working on the same broad theme. Breaks between each session will allow for plentiful discussion of the work just seen and how it may translate to other circuits and problems in systems neuroscience.
The first evening will include a poster session and wine reception.
We invite poster abstract submissions from PhD and postdoctoral researchers, for presentation at the evening poster session. Abstracts should be in the area of systems neuroscience, including:
- experimental work on circuits and systems;
- computational modelling of circuits and systems;
- data analysis for large-scale recordings.
Abstract submissions should include:
- author list with affiliations;
- the presenting author’s email address;
- summary of work (maximum 300 words).
- Consider for talk? (Y/N)
Submit by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ISN2017 abstract. Attach a Word, RTF, or plain text (.txt) file of the abstract submission to the email.
Abstracts will be considered by the organisers.
The top 20 abstracts will have their registration fee waived (details to follow).
Two abstracts will be selected for short (15 minute) spotlight talks in the main programme. Please indicate in your submission if you would like your abstract to be considered for a talk.
Abstract submission opens: April 24th 2017
Abstract submission closes: June 30th 2017
Decision notification: July 28th 2017
Registration open: April 24th 2017
Registration closes: August 11th 2017
Registration fee: £75 (includes all refreshments, wine reception, and lunch on second day)
