Plan a Pittsburgh


Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas are a wonderful place for a late spring/early summer vacation. Amazing nature, rivers, lakes, and beaches, and a variety of water sports are additions to a buzzing urban environment that combines old charm with cutting edge modern art, like the Andy Warhol museum and Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece, Falling Water. 


This conference is sponsored by CMU's Neuroscience Institute.
