The objective of the meeting is to bring theorists and theoretically-motivated experimentalists together to discuss promising theoretical frameworks for understanding cognitive processes and how these may be brought to bear on interpreting neural data or formulating new experiments. We hope that this meeting will be a chance to discuss future goals for theory in neuroscience: what are missing areas and emerging approaches that might help the field to make real progress in developing theories of brain function. The meeting will take place at the Aspen Meadows Resort. There will be a registration fee of $510 which will cover meals and refreshments costs at the venue (waived for speakers and organizers). Once you complete this registration, you will receive a link to submit your payment. The event will start on October 6th at 6:00 pm with a reception followed by a keynote presentation. The meeting is a project of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley and the Grossman Institute for Neuroscience, Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior at the University of Chicago. The meeting is supported by a generous donation from The Sanford J. Grossman Charitable Trust.
