ECNP Workshop 2017

The deadline for abstract submission is approaching: 17 October 2016.

The next ECNP Workshop will be held on 9-12 March 2017 in Nice, France.

The featured topic this year is 'The wider shores of addiction'. The keynote speaker is Heidi Johansen Berg, professor of cognitive neuroscience at the university of Oxford, United Kingdom, talking on ‘Imaging and stimulating adaptive brain plasticity’.

Junior scientists from Europe wishing to attend are invited to submit a scientific abstract for poster presentations.

The 100 selected junior scientists will receive free registration, free hotel accommodation, and heavily subsidised travel costs.
More information about the programme and abstract submission can be found here.


The Brain Conference

This year's Brain Conference on computational and experimental approaches to psychiatry, organised by FENS and the Brain Prize Foundation, will explore the link between computational, neurobiological and developmental perspectives and how these can inform current and future approaches to psychiatric diseases.

It is hoped that the insights gained will provide new targets for mechanistic and genetic analysis, as well as for innovative treatment approaches.

The meeting will take place on 25-28 September 2016 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Early registration closes 22 June 2016; regular registration 20 July 2016.
