The AREADNE conferences bring scientific leaders from around the world to present their recent findings on the functioning of neuronal ensembles in an informal yet spectacular setting on Santorini. The conference series emphasizes interaction with a size and pace that encourages in-depth discussion.
Interested researchers are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract for poster presentation as attendance is strictly limited, and the conference typically sells out.
Abstract submission deadline is 12 Feb 2016. Send us your best work!
