Learning, Memory and Synaptic Plasticity

The Brain Conferences

The Brain Prize was awarded in 2016 for “ground-breaking research on the cellular and molecular basis of Long-Term Potentiation and the demonstration that this form of synaptic plasticity underpins spatial memory and learning.”

Research on LTP and LTD, and their possible functions is now extending to include diverse aspects of memory encoding and consolidation, including areas of emotional learning in brain structures beyond the hippocampus. There is also growing interest in how dysfunction of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity is a likely contributor to a variety of neurological and psychiatric diseases. The aim of this Brain Conference is to bring together world experts to discuss the major issues in the field.

Co-Chairs:

  • Richard Morris (The University of Edinburgh, UK)  
  • Robert Malenka (Stanford University, USA)

The Brain Conferences establish a series of high-level meetings on neuroscience in Europe. Organised by FENS in collaboration with The Brain Prize, these bi-annual conferences bring together outstanding researchers in key broadly defined areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.

  • Early registration deadline: January 23, 2017
  • Regular registration deadline: February 14, 2017

Registration includes abstract submission and poster presentation.

EC services responsible for transport research - DG RTD, DG MOVE and DG CNECT - in collaboration with INEA, are organising an information day to present the new Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020 in the area of transport research and innovation. The event will take place in the morning of 13 December 2017 in Brussels. It will address potential applicants to the 2018 calls for project proposals under the Horizon 2020 challenge 'Smart, green and integrated transport' . Presentations will cover the whole Work Programme 2018-2020, application procedures and will provide detailed information on the calls 2018. The event will be streamed in real time and a webstreaming link will be available 48 hours before the event via a dedicated link (to be activated at a later stage). Registration is compulsory and free of charge. Due to the limited number of seats available, only one representative per organisation will be accepted. To secure your seat, register ASAP! The Info Day will be followed by the ETNA2020 Networking and Brokerage event to take place in the afternoon at the same venue. For this latter, please register separately at: https://www.b2match.eu/h2020transportcall2018/Stay tuned and follow #H2020TransportInfo for more info, networking and partner search!

DG Research and Innovation will present during the GEO-XIV Plenary a side event dedicated to the launch of EuroGEOSS. EuroGEOSS is the European component of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) with a focus on coordination and scaling-up user-driven applications being developed in Europe.EuroGEOSS will combine and coordinate Europe’s Earth observation activities in the context of GEO (Group on Earth Observations). The aim is to boost user uptake of Earth observation data and improve forecasting capabilities for sound decision-making by governments to benefit all Europeans.EuroGEOSS will be a gateway for European Earth Observation programmes and projects to GEOSS, with Copernicus as a major element.The agenda of the event and more details on EuroGEOSS are available below.
