Seminar Series – Fall 2015

All researchers are invited to attend a series of lunchtime talks at Boston University on Wednesdays at noon to facilitate discussion and collaborations associated with the Center for Systems Neuroscience. Seminars will include internal BU speakers and external speakers associated with the NSF EAGER grant that funds the Initiative for Physics and Mathematics of Neural Systems (IPMNS) at Boston University, facilitating collaborations between physicists, mathematicians, engineers, and neuroscientists.

Seminar Schedule: Center for Systems Neuroscience (CSN) and Initiative for Physics and Mathematics of Neural Systems (IPMNS):

Talks will be at one of two locations on the Charles River Campus at Boston University (in adjacent buildings):

  • Room B01 at 24 Cummington Street, with lunch afterward in Room 103, just upstairs
  • or Room 109 at 2 Cummington Street, with lunch served in the same room at start of talk.

All talks are on Wednesday at 12 noon. Speakers from Boston University are listed by their departmental affiliation.
