International Workshop on Dendrites
Heraklion, Crete, Greece.
July 1-4, 2014
info at dendrites2014.gr
Dendrites provide the substrate for inter-neuronal communication, and
their nonlinear properties play a key role in information processing.
Dendrites 2014 aims to bring together scientists from around the world
to present their research on dendrites, ranging from the molecular to
the anatomical and biophysical levels.
With the backdrop of an informal yet spectacular setting on Crete, the
meeting has been carefully planned to not only satisfy our scientific
curiosity but also foster discussion and encourage interaction between
attendees well beyond traditional presentations. In this spirit, the
workshop will also provide a soft skills day for the training of young
researchers in subjects such as research design and
FORMAT AND SPEAKERS
The meeting consists of the Main Event (July 1-3) and the Soft Skills
Day (July 4). Invited speakers for the Main Event include:
Susumu Tonegawa (Nobel Laureate)
Alcino J. Silva
Julietta U. Frey
For the Soft Skills Day, Kerri Smith, Nature podcast editor, is going to
present on communication and dissemination of scientific results.Alcino
J. Silva (UCLA) will present his recent work on developing tools for
integrating and planning research in Neuroscience.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
We are soliciting abstracts for oral and poster presentations. We
welcome both experimental and theoretical contributions addressing novel
findings related to dendrites that fall into one or more of the
·morphological and functional characterizations,
·dendritic integration and compartmentalization,
·dendritic channel distribution and their functional implications,
·molecular pathways and signaling networks,
·RNA trafficking and local protein synthesis,
·functional or structural plasticity and homeostasis,
·the role of dendrites in complex processes, including learning/memory,
neural computations etc.
Electronic abstract submission is hosted on the Frontiers platform
where abstracts will be published as a pdf ebook. Authors wishing to
give oral presentations are required to submit an extended abstract
describing the nature, scope and main results of the work in more
detail. All submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail.
*One of the authors has to register for the main event as a presenting
author. *In case an abstract is not accepted for presentation, the
registration fee will be refunded.
Instructions for on-line submission can be found at
*Important dates *
* Abstract submission opens: January 21, 2014, registration of
presenting author required.
* Abstract submission closes: March 10, 2014.
* Notification of abstract acceptance: late March 2014.
* Notification of oral/poster presentation: early April 2014.
