International Society for Developmental Neuroscience (ISDN2018)
“Development of circuits, functions, and disorders in the nervous system”
We are pleased to announce that the 22nd Biennial Meeting of the International Society for Developmental Neuroscience “Development of circuits, functions, and disorders in the nervous system” will be held on May 22 (Tue) – 25 (Fri), 2018 at Nara Kasugano International Forum, Nara, Japan.
For full details, visit the following website: www.isdn-conference.elsevier.com
Abstract submission deadline: 12 January 2018
Author registration deadline: 28 February 2018
This meeting covers a wide range fields within developmental neuroscience from basic studies with diverse model animals to studies of human diseases, and will include talks and poster presentations on the topics listed below. Two short talks will be selected for each symposium from the poster presentations. As in previous years, the ISDN will provide a number of travel and poster awards for trainees.
Nara is an ancient capital of Japan for 5 centuries prior to Kyoto, and you will also enjoy the city and its oldest culture of Japan. The main hall of the venue is indeed a Noh-gaku stage (Japanese traditional performance), which is a fun (see the poster). Nara is also close to Kyoto (40min by train).
We look forward to your participation.
