The Penn Symposium on "Simple Behaviour in Complex Neural Systems" will
explore how computations and information transmission in complex neural
systems can be governed by simple organizational principles such as
energy efficiency or spatial packing efficiency. The symposium, which
will take place on the University of Pennsylvania campus, will have a
relaxed format with three public lectures at an undergaduate level on
Thursday, April 18, and four technical talks on Friday, April 19. All
talks will occur in the afternoon, giving participants ample opportunity
to interact with each other. Attendance is free, but registration at
http://dept.physics.upenn.edu/~neural02 is required. Lunch, snacks and
caffeinated stimulants will be available in large quantitites.
