In the context of the 1st HBP Student Conference, young researchers from the fields of neuroscience, brain medicine and computer science receive the possibility to exchange ideas and perspectives and discuss various aspects of their particular fields of expertise relevant to the Human Brain Project. The conference offers a variety of discussion sessions, lectures and social events. Through working across boundaries and linking the various fields, it serves as a platform for both intra- and interdisciplinary exchange and is a great opportunity for extensive scientific discussions among peers and faculty, and also a fertile soil for new, innovative ideas.
We are looking for original high-quality submissions containing innovative research from all fields relating to the HBP research programme. Contributions emphasising theoretical and empirical foundations are just as welcome as new approaches to specific questions concerning the twelve subprojects of the HBP. Finally, we particularly encourage submissions introducing new and relevant problems, concepts and ideas with the potential to inspire the research community – even if the approach is at an early stage of development.
All participants may submit an extended abstract and will have the opportunity to present their work. Presentations will include a brief oral presentation, a poster, or both.
Abstracts to be submitted before 7 October 2016.
