Dendrites 2014  
International Workshop on Dendrites
Heraklion, Crete, Greece. 
July 1-4, 2014

Dendrites provide the substrate for inter-neuronal communication and their nonlinear properties play a key role in information processing. This Workshop brings together scientific leaders to present their research on dendrites, at the molecular, anatomical and biophysical level. The main meeting (July 1 - 3, 2014) will be followed by a day of soft skills targeted at advanced PhD students and early postdoctoral researchers (July 4, 2014).

Invited speakers for the main event include:

Susumu Tonegawa (Nobel Laureate)
Angus Silver
Tiago Branco
Alcino J. Silva
Michael Häusser
Julietta U. Frey
Stefan Remy

For the soft skill session (July 4th), 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 Research maps: tools for integrating and planning research in Neuroscience.
One of the authors has to register for the main meeting as a presenting author. Accepted abstracts will be presented as posters or orals. In case an abstract is not accepted for presentation, the registration fee will be refunded.

We are working with collaborators to make travel funding available for selected students and post-doc participants.
