Download ESM   The fourth European Synapse Meeting is organized by members of two EC-funded research programmes on synapses (EUROSPIN and SYNSYS) and two ITN research and training networks (SyMBaD and NPlast). This is the fourth edition of a biannual event, after Bordeaux (2008), Göttingen (2009) and Balatonfured, Hungary (2011).

The aim of this meeting is to bring together junior and senior neuroscientists working on synapses and to provide a forum for new directions and ideas in synapse research. This serves to create a European research community with an active role in promoting synaptic research and its funding within the EU. Although organized by members of European consortia, the meeting welcomes participation from all neuroscientists within and outside the EU. The meeting will combine research lectures by leading neuroscientists from Europe and the US with poster sessions intended to encourage lively discussions and the free exchange of information and ideas.

Support from the EU consortia and from the Bordeaux Neuroscience community to this conference makes the registration fees very affordable, in particular for PhD students and post-docs (200 euros). The registration fee includes coffee breaks, lunches and a gala dinner.

Note that 8 talks will be selected from the abstracts.
