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-sponsored by the three Lemanic institutions once a year, at the end of the summer break. The organization of the meeting rotates among the three institutions.
On 2008, the meeting will be organized by colleagues from the University of Lausanne. The main topic will be Development and Plasticity.
- Four renowned invited speakers:
Yang Dan, UC Berkeley, USA.
Patricia Gaspar, Institut du Fer-à-Moulin, INSERM, Paris, France.
Martyn Goulding, Salk Institute, San Diego, USA.
Brigitte Röder, University of Hamburg, Germany.
- Poster presentations and short talks by PhD Students and postdocs from Lemanic research groups.
- Structured social activities 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. 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.
