[Comp-neuro] Invitation to NeuroFutures Summit - Seattle, June 16-18, 2014.

We are pleased to invite you to the 2014 NeuroFutures Summit.


Who/what/why:  The NeuroFutures Summit will bring together research, industry, and clinical thought leaders to explore how innovations in neuromodulation, brain mapping, neuroimaging, computational neuroscience, and brain computer interfaces will transform our understanding of neural systems and enable life-changing medical treatments.  Participants will learn the state of the art, present and discuss their work, and interact with neurotechnology leaders in a small conference setting.  The abstract deadline for poster presenters is May 16th, 2014.  Over thirty speakers are confirmed.  See agenda below.


When:  Public lecture 6-8pm June 16th followed by the technical conference on June 17th and 18th, 2014.


Where:  Hotel Deca and the University of Washington, Seattle, WA.


Website:  Visit to learn more.


We hope you can join us.


The organizers:


Rad Roberts, Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering, University of Washington,

Dan Rizzuto, Allen Institute for Brain Science,

Bill Rooney, Oregon Health and Science University, and

Bobby Heagerty, Oregon Health and Science University.
