  • Society of Automotive Engineers.

There are also regular conferences that the Army can monitor to track the rapidly developing field of computational neuroscience. These include the Neural Information Processing (NIPS) conference, the biannual Statistical Analysis of Neural Data (SAND) workshop, the annual Computational and Systems Neuroscience (Cosyne) meeting, the annual Computational Neuroscience meeting, and the annual Dynamical Neuroscience meeting. The meetings are a venue for discussions on recent work in the fields of computational neuroscience modeling and signal processing.

The number of Army representatives attending a conference should be large enough to allow coverage of simultaneous sessions that may contain relevant research: two or three persons for smaller conferences, six or more for large gatherings. Each attendee could generate a report to the Army and one of them could summarize the advances and identify possible Army applications. At least yearly, the entire monitoring group would gather, together with additional military guests, to share new Army needs and to discuss the group’s recent findings and expectations for Army-relevant neuroscience.
