Participants will be selected based on the submission of scientific abstracts. Abstracts will be reviewed by the program committee and evaluated according to their relevance to the topic of the workshop, their merit, and the significance of their scientific findings. Efforts will be made to ensure that at least 30% of participants are female researchers.
With respect to young researchers, the workshop will have sessions (4-5 talks of 20 minutes each) where young researchers (postdocs or students) will be selected to present their work. The selection will be based on the scoring (relevance, merit and significance) of submitted abstracts. The top 4–5 abstracts will be selected, taking into account the percentage of female authors. Our goal is that at least 2/5 of the young speakers are female.
Abstracts should describe the latest work on molecular, biophysical, anatomical, computational and/or functional aspects of dendrites to further our understanding of how these beautiful structures contribute to different brain functions and their abnormalities.
Abstracts should be no longer that 600 words plus references. There are no formatting requirements. Please use the online submission system and copy-paste your text in the specified locations.
Poster board dimensions are 1.00m x 1.00m with actual display area of 80cm width x 94cm height.
Please find here instructions for presenters.
