* * * * * SECOND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS * * * * *

Abstract submission for poster and oral presentation is open until 
*March 10, 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.

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.

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 10 
March 2014; notifications will be provided by late March 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 (Frontiers in Cellular 
Neuroscience). One of the authors has to register for the main event as 
a presenting author. Frontiers publishing fees are included in the 
registration. In case an abstract is not accepted for presentation, the 
registration fee will be refunded.

Dendrites 2014 will be hosted by FORTH, and is being organized as part 
of the Marie Curie Initial Training Network NAMASEN and the ERC Starting 
Grant dEMORY.
