NeuroNex Junior Scientist Workshop on Advanced Neural Data Analysis

Columbia University's Jerome L Greene Science Center
New York, New York

This workshop, organized in partnership with the NeuroNex Theory Team at the University of Houston and funded by NSF's NeuroNex initiative, is intended for PhD students and postdocs who want to learn and share with their peers new advanced techniques in data analysis and apply them to complex neural datasets. During the workshop, attendees will present their research projects, followed by a hands-on programming tutorial on the computational techniques used in their work.  The purpose is to gain detailed understanding of the complexity of data and of the appropriateness of the different analysis techniques.

Application deadline: May 31, 2019

MINT Workshop

University of Michigan
Ann Arbor, Michigan

The University of Michigan's MINT Hub will offer a workshop on the week of June 17 to a limited number of researchers interested in structure and function tools. This hands-on workshop has three full days for one of two separate tracks. The first option covers all the surgical techniques and practical usage of our uLED optoelectrodes and electrodes in general. Workshop organizers hope to send all attendees home with two uLEDs for immediate use.  Or attendees may choose training for the use of Brainbow labeling, Clarity, and Expansion Microscopy.

Present and Future Frameworks of Theoretical Neuroscience

Emily Morgan Hotel
San Antonia, Texas

The BRAIN initiative will result in the generation of tools to collect enormous amounts of data. To make sense of it all it is necessary to develop theories that will integrate results across scales. The goal of this meeting is to determine the present theoretical framework in neuroscience, identify challenges, and define strategies to tackle future problems in the field.
