7th biennial NEURIZONS 2016 Conference


7th biennial neuroscience conference Neurizons – ‘Speak your mind’.

31st of May – 3rd of June 2016 at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical chemistry inGöttingenGermany we host a concert to resonate through the plethora of scales of Neuroscience.

Neurizons promises a stage for young scientists to bring forward their ideas and also a platform for learning and scientific exchange with the masters in the field. This year features neuroscience in the fields of Synaptic Physiology and Plasticity, Higher Brain Functions, Sensory and Motor Neuroscience, Systems, Circuits and Computation, Glial Physiology and Neurodegeneration, and Emerging Techniques in Neuroscience.

Neurizons provides a perfect milieu for stimulating discussions and networking during talks, poster sessions and in the more informal settings of the various social events. It is also a great opportunity to analyze and assess career paths both within and outside academia with the help of our career fair. We also offer workshops as an introduction to the latest cutting edge technology and state of the art work in Neuroscience.

Prof. Dr. Stuart Firestein will give the Keynote Lecture.

The topics covered by plenary lectures include:

Synaptic Physiology and Plasticity

Higher Brain Functions

Sensory Neuroscience

Emerging Techniques

Glia Cells and Neurodegeneration

Systems Neuroscience

In addition to plenary lectures, the conference offers several exciting events:

Young Investigator Contest: present your work in a short plenary talk, gain admiration and win a prize

Poster Sessions : discuss and exchange ideas

Workshops: get to know and try out modern methods used in neuroscience

Coach Me Event: meet the speakers in an one on one mentoring session

Career Fair: learn about job opportunities in science and industry

NEURIZONS2016 also  hosts the Satellite Symposium “Synapses, Circuits and Sensory Systems” that is part of the celebrations for the 15th anniversary of the European Neuroscience Institute.

Registration is now OPEN.

Early registration deadline: 01.03.2015. Abstract submission deadline: 01.05.2015.
