15 Data Blitz talks by PhD candidates in neuroscience from the Lemanic region wil complete the scientific talk program. The slots are given on a competetive basis once PhD candidates choose the option to present a concise insight into their research when submitting their presentation abstract. The blitz talk should not last longer than 8min (and leaving 2min for questions from the audience).
On Friday evening, all PhD candidates are asked to present their research in a poster session, paralleled by an aperitif with many possibilities to discuss with fellow students and more senior researchers. These discussions can of course be continued at the conference dinner at the Hotel Victoria. All oral and poster presentations will enter the competition for the Jean Falk-Vairant award as every year.
