1st HBP Student Conference: Transdisciplinary Research Linking Neuroscience, Brain Medicine and Computer Science


The 1st HBP Student Conference provides an open forum for exchange of new ideas among young researchers working across various aspects of neuroscience, brain medicine and computer science relevant to the Human Brain Project. The scope of the conference offers a plethora of opportunities for extensive scientific discussions, both intra- and inter-disciplinary, among peers and faculty through a variety of discussion sessions, lectures and social events.

Conference Structure Keynote Lectures, Discussion Sessions, Student Lightning Talks, Poster Presentations, Round Table Discussion, Social Event

We are looking for original high-quality submissions containing innovative research from all fields relating to the HBP research programme. Contributions emphasising theoretical and empirical foundations are just as welcome as new approaches to specific questions concerning the twelve subprojects of the HBP. Finally, we particularly encourage submissions introducing new and relevant problems, concepts and ideas with the potential to inspire the research community – even if the approach is at an early stage of development. All participants may submit an extended abstract and will have the opportunity to present their work. Presentations will include a brief oral presentation, a poster, or both.

Abstracts to be submitted before 7 October 2016.

The conference will start on Wednesday, 8 February 2017 in the early afternoon with registration and end the afternoon of Friday, 10 February 2017.
