Program and other details

The second edition of the NeuroLeman Network and Doctoral Schools Meeting will place on May 14-16, 2020, in Les Diablerets.

While May 14 will be a day for Lemanic PIs to meet and discuss, May 15 and 16 will be dedicated to common activities of PhD candidates and PIs. 

The meeting program is organized by:

  • Claudia Bagni (DNF-UNIL) and Ron Stoop (CNP-CHUV) as PIs


  • PhD candiates who still need to be named ...


Program details will be announced soon, and comprise invited lectures, extended poster sessions, workshops for PhD candidates and encounters with junior and senior peer neuroscientists.

Data Blitz talks by PhD candidates in neuroscience from the Lemanic region wil round up the scientific program. The presentation slots are given on a competetive basis once PhD candidates choose the option to present a concise insight into their research when submitting their abstract. The blitz talk should not last longer than 10min (and leaving 3min for questions from the audience). All oral and poster presentations will enter the competition for the Jean Falk-Vairant awards.
