Poster abstract deadline is _Monday, May 4_ (see below for details).
Perfectly OK to re-use a poster you have presented at another recent conference.

This year's JSNC is sponsored in part by the Brain Corporation.

_Registration_. Please pre-register by emailing your name and affiliation to
Registration" in the subject header.  Pre-registration fee is $25 for students,
$35 for others. Registration at the door is $45.  Registration includes light
breakfast, coffee, snacks, and catered lunch.  You may pay by (1) Google Wallet
(click the $ to attach money in gmail), or by personal check mailed to Denise
Steiner, BME Department, Mail Code 1111, USC, Los Angeles, 90089.
Pre-registration will save your money and time, and allow us to plan for food.

_Poster Abstract Submission_.  Posters are welcomed from all members of the
neural computation community of Southern California.  Research areas include all
aspects of neural computation including cellular, network, and systems-level
modeling; applications of neuromorphic algorithms and hardware to problems in
vision, speech, motor control, and cognitive function.  Reuse of posters from
recent meetings is encouraged (e.g. SFN, Cosyne, NIPS, etc.).  The deadline for
receipt of abstracts is Monday, May 4, 2015.  Abstract must fit on a single
page, in PDF format.  They should be sent to JointSymposium@gmail.com
<mailto:JointSymposium@gmail.com> with "JSNC 2015 Abstract" in the subject
line.  Accepted abstracts will be invited for poster presentation at the
conference.  Notification of acceptance will be given on May 6, 2015.

_Parking_.  Enter the USC campus at Gate 1 on Exposition Blvd. or  Gate 6 on
Vermont.  Park as directed by the gate attendant.

_About the JSNC_.  In 1994, the Institute for Neural Computation at UCSD hosted
the first Joint Symposium on Neural Computation with Caltech.  This Symposium
brought together students and faculty, and experimentalists and theorists, for a
enjoyable day of short presentations on topics relating to information
processing in the nervous system.  Since then, the JSNC has rotated between

UCSD, Caltech, USC, UCLA, UC Irvine and UC Riverside.
