CNS 2018 Seattle: Workshops Program

For inquiries related to these workshops, please contact the workshop organiser: [email protected].

Location

Registration and most workshops will be held at the Allen Institute. Some workshops will be assigned to nearby MOHAI and UW Medicine at South Lake Union. Attendees must wear conference badges at all locations. Attendees who haven’t registered prior to workshop day one should begin with registration at the Allen Institute, obtain a conference badge, then depart for any workshops at other locations. Leave ten minutes for walking between Allen Institute and MOHAI or UW Medicine. Event staff will be on-site at all locations to answer questions. Room assignments for workshops will be made closer to the event, please check back for updates.
