Dear Colleagues,

You are kindly invited to attend the EMBO Workshop on Dendritic Anatomy, 
Molecules and Function (DENDRITES 2016) in Crete.

Dendrites provide the substrate for inter-neuronal communication, and 
their nonlinear properties play a key role in information processing. 
Following a very successful meeting in 2014, Dendrites 2016 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 not only to satisfy our scientific 
curiosity but also to 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 scientific writing/publication 
issues, fundraising and gender balance.

Abstract submission for poster and oral presentation is open until 
*February 15, 2016***

On behalf of the organizing committee,

Yiota Poirazi

We are soliciting abstracts for oral and poster presentations. We 
welcome both experimental and theoretical contributions addressing novel 
findings, methods or databases related to dendrites that fall into one 
or more of the following domains:

  * 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.

Please note that places are limited and subject to availability. 
Attendees are highly encouraged to submit abstracts for presentations, 
since presenters will be given priority for registration.

Instructions for on-line submission can be found at 

*Important dates *

  * Abstract submission opens: December 15th, 2016
  * Abstract submission closes: February 15th, 2016
  * Notification of abstract acceptance: February 29th, 2016
  * Notification of oral/poster presentation: early March 2016

_Organizing committee:_
Yiota Poirazi, IMBB-FORTH
Michael Hausser, UCL *
Matthew Larkum, Humboldt University

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Workshop takes place on the island of Crete and is 
followed by the AREADNE 2016 meeting <http://areadne.org/> (June 
22-26th, 2016), focusing on Research in Encoding And Decoding of Neural 
Ensembles, on the neighboring island of Sandorini. DENDRITES 2016 
participants are encouraged to consider attending both meetings.
