CIN-NIPS-Asia Pacific Systems Neuroscience Symposium 2023: PROGRAM and REGISTRATION

The CIN is pleased to announce the 11th CIN-NIPS-Asia Pacific symposium which will be held both on-site (lecture hall of the HNO-Klinik: Elfriede-Aulhorn-Straße 5, 72076 Tübingen; see map on last page) and online on March 10 and 11, 2023. The symposium originates from a yearly bilateral tradition of strong joint interactions with the National Institute for Physiological Sciences (NIPS) in Okazaki, Japan. Over the last 4 years, the symposium has become a multi-lateral event, with contributions by additional institutions in Tübingen, Japan, and China. This year, we are very happy to welcome on site, for the first time since the pandemics, a delegation of 6 NIPS speakers, 4 speakers from Tokyo, Okinawa, and Shanghai, and 14 speakers from our Tübingen Neuro Campus community. The symposium will feature 25 presentations and a poster session covering a broad range of topics in systems neuroscience. We are looking forward to a large on-site audience and global online attendance.

The poster session still has available slots! All are welcome to submit a poster, on a “first come, first served” basis. The poster session is a great opportunity for students and junior postdocs to practice their presentation skills, particularly after such a long period without in-person meetings. Feel free to present a poster from a recent meeting or in preparation to another upcoming meeting.

For registering (on-site or online) and poster submission, as well as to receive the online attendance zoom link, please fill in this Online Registration Form.
