We are happy to announce that Prof.  Tonegawa's lecture will be 
supported by EMBO, as the "EMBO Keynote Lecture". This award, given to 
EMBO members presenting in major international scientific meeting, 
highlights the international standing of DENDRITES 2014.


Dendrites 2014 aims to bring together scientists from around the world 
to present their research on dendrites, ranging from the molecular to 
the anatomical and biophysical levels.  The Workshop will take place in 
the beautiful island of Crete, just after the AREADNE meeting 
(areadne.org) which takes place in the nearby island of Santorini. Note 
that Santorini is just a 2 hour boat ride from Crete. One could combine 
two meetings in a single trip to Greece!


The meeting consists of the Main Event (July 1-3) and the Soft Skills 
Day (July 4).  Invited speakers for the Main Event include:

* Susumu Tonegawa (Nobel Laureate),

* Angus Silver,

* Tiago Branco,

* Alcino J. Silva,

* Michael Häusser,

* Julietta U. Frey,

* Stefan Remy, and

* Kristen Harris.

For the Soft Skills Day, Kerri Smith, Nature podcast editor, is going to 
present on communication and dissemination of scientific results. 
  Alcino J. Silva (UCLA) will present his recent work on developing 
tools for integrating and planning research in Neuroscience. There will 
be a hands on session on tools used to model neural cells/networks and a 
talk about the advantages of publishing under the Creative Commons License.


Submission of abstracts for poster and oral presentations are due by *14 
April 2014*. We welcome both experimental and theoretical contributions 
addressing novel findings related to dendrites. For details, please see 

Electronic abstract submission is hosted on the Frontiers platform, 
where extended abstracts will be published as an online, open access 
special issue (in Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience, Impact factor 
4.5). One of the authors has to register for the main event as a 
presenting author. In case an abstract is not accepted for presentation, 
the registration fee will be refunded.
