Abstract submission for poster and oral presentation is open until

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.
FORMAT AND SPEAKERS
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.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Submission of abstracts for poster and oral presentations are due by 10
March 2014; notifications will be provided by late March 2014. We
