neuromatch 4.0

A conference for the computational neuroscience community

After three conferences in 2020, Neuromatch is pleased to be holding our fourth. Each of our conferences has led the way in providing new innovations to the virtual conference space, and with this one we are pleased to combine the virtual with the in-person experiences. Participants are encouraged to host or attend a local meetup, bringing people together to enjoy the conference in hybrid mode, and without the incredible economic and environmental costs of flying around the world.

Neuromatch 4.0 will be focused on Computational Neuroscience broadly construed, following in the model of the first two NMC events. The scope includes machine learning work that has an explicit biological link. The main series of talks will be hosted within Crowdcast. Instead of posters, we offer flash talks, which are brief pre-recorded videos, and dedicated meet up times for discussion within discord.
