Program and other details
The NeuroLeman Network and Doctoral Schools Meeting took place on May 2-4, 2019, in Les Diablerets.
Photos of the meeting can be found here.
While May 2 will be a day for Lemanic PIs to meet and discuss, May 3 and 4 are dedicated to lectures, encounters, presentations and social activities common for PhD candidates and PIs.
The meeting program on May 3-4 is organized by members of the BMI-EPFL, namely
- as PIs: Kathryn Hess-Bellwald, Gabriele Grenningloh, Carl Petersen & Ralf Schneggenburger
- as student commitee: Cristina Colangelo, Nathan Riguet, Choung Oh-Hyeon (EPFL)
Program details can be found below; plenary lectures will be given by:
- Michael Hausser (University College London, UK): All-optical interrogation in behaving animals
Laura Andreae (Centre for Developmental Neurobiology, King’s College London, UK): The role of spontaneous neurotransmitter realease during neuronal development
Kathryn Hess-Bellwald (EPFL): Topological insights in neurocience
Pavan Ramdya (EPFL): Reverse-engineering drosophila behavior
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 10min (and leaving 3min 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.
