Check the Diablerets 2006 website here
The Diablerets Meeting is organized primarily as a graduate student activity for the students of the Doctoral School in Neuroscience of the Universities of Lausanne and Geneva and neuroscience students in the Doctoral Program of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. This meeting is co-organized and co-sponsored by the three Lemanic institutions once a year, at the end of the summer break.
This year we are planning another exciting and enjoyable conference, featuring:
- Four renowned invited speakers, introducing different approaches to the study of the reward system, from basic to clinical neuroscience:
Wolfram Schultz, University of Cambridge
Stephanie L. Borgland, University of California, San Francisco
Dana M. Small, Yale University Medical School
Antoine Bechara, University of Southern California
- Poster presentations and short talks by PhD Students and postdocs from Lemanic research groups.
- Topic lunches for gathering together students with invited speakers.
- Structured social activities (PDF )featuring the spectacular surroundings of Les Diablerets and allowing informal discussions between participants.
Participation is free of charge for Neuroscience Ph.D. students currently enrolled at one of the three lemanic schools (subject to their institution's rules). Post-doctoral fellows from affiliated labs will receive their lunches and dinners free of charge if they present an abstract, but will be responsible for their own lodging. Other students and collaborators are also welcome to participate at their own expense (or that of their host lab or institution, by previous arrangement between the interested parties).
