In July 2008 five neuroscientists from Geneva and Lausanne organized the students social events for the FENS meeting (Palexpo, Geneva, July 12-16th).
There were 3 evenings for students from all over the world to gather in a unique location, the United Nations beach, to eat, drink, dance, and enjoy the music and the view.
The JTF'08 committee was formed by:
- Arnaud Bisetti
- Charles Quairiaux
- Pierre Mégevand
- Lorenzo Poglia
- Dragana Viceic
During the day, at the conference center, the JTF!08 - LN stand was a meeting point for people to get information about the JTF!08 evenings. A coffee machine, a baby-foot, a few computers with internet access and some chocolates... available for all those who needed to relax in between lectures or poster sessions.
More than 30 young lemanic neuroscientists, wearing light blue and lavander JTF!08 T-shirts, were at Palexpo to give information to foreign students, and at the United Nations beach to help out with the JTF!08 evenings.
