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!
