The 2019 Neural Computation and Engineering Connection (NCEC) will be held on the afternoon of Thursday, January 24, 2019 and all day Friday, January 25, 2019. NCEC brings together the University of Washington neuroengineering and computational neuroscience communities in an exciting and stimulating event! It is sponsored by the UW Institute for Neuroengineering (UWIN), the UW Computational Neuroscience Center, and the Center for Neurotechnology.
Keynote speakers for NCEC 2019 are: Mitra Hartmann (Northwestern), Abby Person (University of Colorado Denver), Andrea Behrman (University of Louisville), and Maryam Shanechi (University of Southern California).
Local speakers include: Andre Berndt (UW Bioengineering), Kat Steele (UW Mechanical Engineering), Nick Steinmetz (UW Biological Structure), and Mari Ostendorf (UW Electrical & Computer Engineering). UWIN and Computational Neuroscience graduate and postdoctoral fellows will also be giving talks.
Registration is free but required.
