CNNG Symposium @ WashU: Computational Neuroscience Next Generation Symposium at Washington University

CNNG Symposium @ WashU is a prestigious symposium sponsored by the newly established Center for Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience (CTCN) at Washington University in St. Louis. Selected senior graduate students who are using primarily theoretical and computational techniques to study the principles of brain organization and function will be brought to St. Louis to present their thesis work and expand their scientific network at WashU. CNNG participants will engage with researchers at CTCN-participating departments over two days, including:

  • Presenting their work during a symposium featuring CNNG speakers and WashU neuroscientists
  • Meeting one-on-one with faculty
  • Engaging in informal discussions with the Washington University computational and theoretical neuroscience community
  • Exploring St. Louis, the Gateway to the West

The 2023 CNNG Symposium will take place September 18-20, 2023.

Applications are due April 14, 2023.

Being selected as a CNNG speaker is an exciting opportunity for graduate students to share their research with Washington University computational neuroscientists, to receive feedback, to explore postdoctoral opportunities, including the prestigious CTCN fellowships, and to form professional and intellectual relationships with peers, mentors and potential future collaborators. The CTCN will cover accommodation, airfares for domestic CNNG speakers, and make a contribution to airfares for international CNNG speakers.


If you are an outstanding senior graduate student working in the field of theoretical and computational neuroscience, we encourage you to apply below by April 14, 2023.

CNNG Symposium @ WashU

Please list up to five faculty members from CTCN-participating departments with whom you’d like to meet (note this is not restricted to Steering Committee members).

Would you be willing to be contacted by faculty within CTCN-participating departments for opportunities outside the CNNG program (e.g. invitation to present at other data/journal clubs, one-on-one meetings, exploration of postdoc opportunities)?
