Computational and Systems Neuroscience 2022 (Cosyne)

17 - 20 March 2022
Lisbon, Portugal

21 - 22 March 2022
Cascais, Portugal


The annual Cosyne meeting provides an inclusive forum for the exchange of empirical and theoretical approaches to problems in systems neuroscience, in order to understand how neural systems function. This year the conference will be held in-person, with talks from the main conference streamed on Youtube (past talks can be seen here: For information on traveling to Portugal please visit: COVID-19 | Measures implemented in Portugal |

Cosyne topics include but are not limited to: neural basis of behavior, sensory and motor systems, circuitry, learning, neural coding, natural scene statistics, dendritic computation, neural basis of persistent activity, nonlinear receptive field mapping, representations of time and sequence, reward systems, decision-making, synaptic plasticity, map formation and plasticity, population coding, attention, neuromodulation, and computation with spiking networks.

The MAIN MEETING is single-track. A set of invited talks is selected by the Executive Committee, and additional talks and posters are selected by the Program Committee, based on submitted abstracts. The WORKSHOPS feature in-depth discussion of current topics of interest, in a small group setting.

All abstract submissions will be reviewed double blind. The deadline for Abstract submission will be 20 November 2021. Please check for more instructions on abstract submission (example abstracts will be added to the site closer to submission date). Abstracts will be selected based on the clarity with which they convey the substance, significance, and originality of the work to be presented.

We would like to foster increased participation from experimental groups as well as computational ones. Please circulate widely and encourage students and postdocs to apply! Travel and childcare grants are available.

Abstract submission opens: 15 October 2021
Travel grant submission opens: 01 November 2021
Abstract submission deadline: 20 November 2021
