Next to our conference program, there will be plenty opportunity to visit the Brain Mind Institute and meet our faculty, post docs and graduate students.

Five fellowships (1000. - Swiss Francs each) will be awarded to PhD students wishing to present a poster contribution. In addition, the Debiopharm Life Sciences Award will be presented on the occasion.
