Understanding neural correlations has been the topic of intense activity in the recent years. While great progress has been made in unraveling the mechanistic origins of correlations in neural networks, their role in neural computations and plasticity is still not clear. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together theorists and experimentalists working on that topic in order to review recent progress and generate ideas for future work. The program will consist of 30-40 minutes talks and a round table discussion. There will also be ample time for informal discussions.
