Annual Meeting of the NeuroLeman Network and Doctoral Schools 2021 (NLN'21)

Program and other details

The 2021 edition of the Meeting of the NeuroLeman Network and Doctoral Schools will take place on 7 May 2021 only, adapting a fully online format due to the ongoing pandemics. However, as many of you have not met peers from other labs since a long time, we hope we can provide you with an interactive program fostering exchanges and allowing to meet new people and re-meet colleagues.

Dear PhD candidates: Data Blitz talks will be selected based on your submitted abstract. Your blitz talk should not last longer than 10min (incl. 3min for questions from the audience), and provide a very concise insight into your research. All presentations will enter the competition for the Jean Falk-Vairant awards. We decided against poster sessions in the context of the meeting program on May 7, but we encourage you to propose your interested audience a time slot for a follow-up meeting (on a different day please) where you present your work in more detail.

The meeting program is organized by Claudia Bagni (DNF-UNIL) and Ron Stoop (CNP-CHUV) as PIs, as well as NeuroLeman junior researchers.

The detailed meeting program and all necessary information regarding poster and short talks of PhD candidates can be found under the link:
