Dendrites 2014
International Workshop on Dendrites
Heraklion, Crete, Greece.
July 1-4, 2014
info at dendrites2014.gr

Dendrites provide the substrate for inter-neuronal communication, and 
their nonlinear properties play a key role in information processing. 
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.

With the backdrop of an informal yet spectacular setting on Crete, the 
meeting has been carefully planned to not only satisfy our scientific 
curiosity but also foster discussion and encourage interaction between 
attendees well beyond traditional presentations. In this spirit, the 
workshop will also provide a soft skills day for the training of young 
researchers in subjects such as research design and 

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
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.

We are soliciting abstracts for oral and poster presentations. We 
welcome both experimental and theoretical contributions addressing novel 
findings related to dendrites that fall into one or more of the 
following domains:

·morphological and functional characterizations,
·dendritic integration and compartmentalization,
·dendritic channel distribution and their functional implications,
·molecular pathways and signaling networks,
·RNA trafficking and local protein synthesis,
·functional or structural plasticity and homeostasis,
·the role of dendrites in complex processes, including learning/memory, 
neural computations etc.

Electronic abstract submission is hosted on the Frontiers platform 
where abstracts will be published as a pdf ebook. Authors wishing to 
give oral presentations are required to submit an extended abstract 
describing the nature, scope and main results of the work in more 
detail. All submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail.

*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.

Instructions for on-line submission can be found at 

*Important dates *

  * Abstract submission opens: January 21, 2014, registration of
    presenting author required.
  * Abstract submission closes: March 10, 2014.
  * Notification of abstract acceptance: late March 2014.
  * Notification of oral/poster presentation: early April 2014.
