6th conference of the Association for Research in Neuroeducation
The 6th conference of the Association for Research in Neuroeducation will be held on June 6-8, 2018, at the Sorbonne in Paris, France, and organized by the Laboratory for the Psychology of the Child Development and Education (LaPsyDÉ) at the CNRS and the Paris Descartes University. The first day will consist of general public conferences (in French only) around the topic of « Neuroeducation: a new science for school? », and will aim to share and discuss the latest progress in the field of neuroeducation with students, teachers and other experts in education. The goal of this day will be to strengthen the links between the members of the educational community by facilitating the exchange of ideas and expertise and the dialog between the lab and the school. In addition to conferences given by several researchers in developmental psychology, education sciences and developmental cognitive neuroscience, round table sessions will allow to reflect on the future school.
The scientific symposium will be held over the following two days (Day 2 and 3), and will aim at presenting the findings of researchers who manage to reconcile the constraints of the cognitive neuroscience techniques with the investigation of questions in the field of education at school and at the university. Our keynote speaker will be Bert de Smedt, Associate Professor of Neuroscience at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL).
For the scientific symposium, we welcome oral presentations submissions and poster submissions from researchers and students working in developmental psychology, education sciences and developmental neuroscience.
The online abstract submission is open until February 28th, 2018.
Abstracts should not exceed 300 words in length. The full abstract will be reviewed by the conference scientific committee and the result of this review will be communicated on March 28th, 2018.

Workshop in Integrative Approaches in Neurodegeneration
The Workshop in Integrative Approaches in Neurodegeneration is organized in the frame of the FlySMALS consortium, funded by the 2013 JPND Transnational call for “European research projects for Cross-Disease Analysis of Pathways related to Neurodegenerative Diseases”, which come to an end this year. The workshop aims to disseminate and integrate the results of the research consortium with state-of-the-art research in the field, promoting the joint presentation and discussion of relevant research topics by a panel of international experts, including members of other consortia funded through the same JPND call.
The program targets a broad audience of basic, experimental, computational and clinical scientists, in the spirit of the JNPD Cross-Disease Analysis call, aiming to:
promote the analysis of diseases across traditional clinical boundaries
combine fundamental, pre-clinical and clinical experimental approaches with computational approaches
re-define clinical phenotypes and new approaches in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases
identify commonalities and differences molecular pathways underlying neurodegenerative diseases.
The workshop will bring together 20 invited speakers and 50 registered participants, providing an ideal environment for dynamic interactions promoting the exchange of expertise across areas, supporting the conceptual development of novel integrative research approaches that will contribute to the future progress in neurodegenerative disease research. Participants will be able to present their work at a poster section and through short talks from selected abstracts.
Join us in the wonderful city of Lisbon for an exciting inter-disciplinary program at the forefront of neurodegenerative disease research.
