CeLyA Summer School “Hearing in noise”

The CeLyA Summer School “Hearing in noise” will take place from June 15th to 17th 2020 in Lyon France. In comparison to a conference, the talks will be longer and will introduce the basics before elaborating and finishing up with up-to-date research. The targeted audience is MSc / PhD students and postdoc potentially new to the field, but industrial and senior researchers are of course welcome. Different sessions are organized to cover different aspects of hearing in noise, see the list of sessions and invited speakers below.

The participants and speakers are strongly encouraged to stay for the entire duration of the school to get more opportunities to interact with one another. Specific social activities (meal, barbecue party) are organized on the premises to favour informal interactions. The participants will be able to present their own research during a dedicated poster session (presentation is encouraged but not mandatory to participate in the school).

The school is free from registration fees (which includes all the sessions & social events except accommodation), so we have a finite number of places (around 100). Therefore, we ask the participants to register by sending a short CV (1 page max.) and a few lines explaining their motivations for attending the school. Please fill in the attached registration form and send it along with your CV to : carine.zambardi@ec-lyon.fr.

The deadline for registration is March 31st 2020.

6th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology – Paris

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is our great pleasure and honour to welcome you to Paris for the 6th congress of the European Academy of Neurology from 23 to 26 May 2020. Paris is a dynamic and cosmopolitan city and one of Europe’s major centres for science, education and arts. Paris also has an unrivalled heritage, with historic sites, picturesque streets, iconic monuments, world-class museums and art galleries. Paris is also famous for gastronomy and fashion, and the city centre is classified as a UNESCO Heritage Site.

France has a longstanding and pioneering tradition of Neurology and Neuroscience (the French Neurological society was founded in 1899, with the Salpêtrière as an historic cradle). Since then, University Hospitals and research centres all over the country have contributed to scientific, clinical and therapeutic innovations, and have fostered strategic and productive international collaborations with many European groups. The EAN is proud to build on this heritage when coming to Paris and is confident that the community of French neurologists will extend their hospitality to make this Congress and your stay a great success and full of great memories.

The overarching theme of the congress is “Time for Action: Predict, Prevent, Repair”.  The ‘red thread’ of the congress will show and demonstrate in many sessions with a rich spectrum of high-quality information the novel therapeutic interventions, designed to predict, protect and repair neurodegenerative diseases.

The congress will take place in a newly renovated congress venue, Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, a model of sustainable development, a place to live, as well as the largest French exhibition centre, which is in the heart of Paris and easily accessible by public transportation, scooters or Velib’ bikes.

EAN and the French Neurological community welcome you to an enlightening Congress in Paris. We also hope that you will enjoy the charm of Paris and the gentle lifestyle and culture in an international and friendly atmosphere.

We look forward to welcoming you to Paris!

Göttingen Meeting of the German Neuroscience Society – Call for Symposia

The Call for Symposia proposals for the bi-annual meeting of the German Neuroscience Society (NWG) is open. The call is not restricted to our members but addresses neuroscientists from abroad as well, and especially the European neuroscience community. Proposals from any field of neurosciences are welcome, the meeting has no topical focus. The language of the meeting is English.

The meeting takes place on March 24 – 27, 2021. With around 1.500 participants it is one of the largest neuroscience meetings in Europe besides the FENS Forum. The program offers 36 symposia with four speakers each.

For more information please click here.

The NWG cannot offer core funding. However, in the past the German Research Council (DFG) has always supported the meeting with a substantial amount which could be used for travel costs for speakers from outside Germany. This allowed us to reimburse foreign symposium speakers at least partially. The NWG will apply for funding to the DFG  for the upcoming meeting again.

Proposals can be submitted via a webform. Please contact central office of the NWG (gibson@mdc-berlin.de) if you have questions.

Fresh look on Brain Inhibition – Meeting

The 3rd International Neuroscience conference will be held in Marseille on April 5th and 6th 2020.

This year, the subject will be inhibition. This is a major issue since synaptic or intrinsic inhibition defects are at the root of neurological diseases such as epilepsy but also psychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia. In addition, inhibitory circuits orchestrate neural activity under physiological conditions and are therefore at the origin of most major brain functions.

A panel of 18 local, national (Paris, Saclay) and international (USA, UK, Switzerland, Germany) experts in the field of synaptic and intrinsic inhibition was selected to present their latest results:

Maria Cécilia ANGULO (IPNP, Paris)
Alberto BACCI (ICM, Paris)
Heinz BECK (IEECR, Bonn)
Romain BRETTE (Institut de la Vision, Paris)
Patrick CHAUVEL (Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland)
Harold CREMER (IBDM, Marseille)
Kevin DA SILVA (Chief editor, Nature Neuroscience)
Alain DESTEXHE (UNIC, Saclay)

Anthony HOLTMAAT (UNIGE, Geneva)
Hannah MONYER ( IZN, Heidelberg)
Ivan SOLTESZ (University of Standford)
Nelson SPRUSTON (Janelia Res. Campus, Ashburn)
Gabor TAMAS (University of Szeged)

And this year again, the meeting will take place in a unique venue, the prestigious Hôtel Intercontinental Hôtel Dieu in Marseille, which provides this event with exceptional working conditions, concentration and exchanges.


Registration is now open, until March 27th 2020. Participants are invited to submit a poster.

Course description
The overall aim of this course is to teach young research-oriented neurologists and neuroscientists about fundamental mechanisms underlying movement disorders. The course participants will learn about clinical and genetic characteristics, preclinical models and pathophysiological foundations of movement disorders and their therapies. An important goal is to update clinical neurologists and neuroscientists on the forefront and the latest developments of research of movement disorders. The course will hopefully engage young neurologists and neuroscientists into research on Movement Disorders and promote translational research involving multidisciplinary approaches. The course mainly consists of lectures by international experts on Parkinson’s disease and movement disorders. Local experts will serve as chairs to facilitate discussion after each lecture. There will also be a panel discussion with experts and a “bring your own research” session where course participants will present their own research projects. During breaks and the networking dinner, the participants will also get the opportunity to interact with faculty and peers.

Recommended audience
Young neurologists (residents, movement disorder fellows) and young scientists (PhD students, postdoctoral fellows) interested in the basic science of movement disorders.

Learning objectives 

  • Describe findings in preclinical models of Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders
  • Discuss the translational value of preclinical models of Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders
  • Recognize clinical implications of recent basic science developments in Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders
  • Identify important clinical aspects of movement disorders where more basic research is needed


Course registration deadline: Monday, April 6, 2020
