Conference December 3-6, 2007, Vancouver
Workshop December 7-8, 2007, Whistler
NEURO-THURSDAY at NIPS: Thursday, December 6 – 8:30 AM – Noon – Vancouver

Thursday, December 6 (the final day of the Conference), will be devoted to Neuroscience,and will consist of a fascinating invited talk by Professor Manabu Tanifuji (Riken) on the monkey visual cortex, plus six outstanding plenary talks.
In addition, all of the Neuroscience posters will take place on Wednesday night, allowing early arrivals to interact with researchers. The Wednesday night poster program will also contain many posters on Machine Learning and Computer Vision, focused on topics that are also relevant to Neuroscience.
All of the morning events (including the Wednesday night Poster Session and the Spotlights that precede it) will be available for the special “Neuro-Thursday” registration rate of $50. For those attending the entire Conference, “Neuro-Thursday” is included in the registration price.
