The NEuroscience Workshop Saclay (NeWS) is a scientific event organized for and by young scientists, students and postdocs in neuroscience from the Paris-Saclay University. This event is sponsored by the NeuroSaclay initiative which fosters exchange between the neuroscience institutes of the Paris-Saclay campus.
There is no registration fee, but online registration for the workshop is required.
New concepts in neuronal pattern encoding
This year the conference topic is about new conceptual advances on how activity patterns produced by the brain encode sensory inputs or motor outputs and on how the circuits underlying brain activity patterns are established. This exciting broad topic overarches structural and functional questions, which are both fundamental for understanding of the brain. Excellent plenary speakers will contribute with findings on the nervous system of various organisms ranging from flies to humans.
The NeWS workshop aims to foster interactions between students / young scientists and senior scientists. Therefore young scientists are very much encouraged to submit an abstract to the conference.
Among the submitted abstracts, 8 will be given the opportunity to present their work in a 10 min oral presentation. These presentations will take place during all sessions, interleaved with invited lectures. The talks will be selected according to the quality of the abstract and its relationship with the topic of the conference (however, because the topic is very general, all interesting neuroscience abstracts will be considered). The student presenters are invited to attend the conference dinner with the plenary speakers.
Also, two poster sessions will be organised and a prize will be awarded for the best poster.
So don’t be shy, grab the opportunity and come hear about great science and discuss your results!
