AREADNE 2022 Research in Encoding and Decoding of Neural Ensembles

  December 12, 2021  
Nomikos Conference Centre, Santorini, Greece
28 June 2022 to 2 July 2022

A fundamental problem in neuroscience is to understand how the activation of neuronal populations gives rise to higher order functions including learning, memory, cognition, perception, action and ultimately conscious awareness. Electrophysiological recordings have revealed considerable information about the firing patterns of single neurons, but it remains largely a mystery how collections of individual neurons interact to perform these functions.  Understanding ensemble activity is critical to understanding the brain.

Thus the AREADNE Conferences have been created to gather global scientific leaders who work on neural ensembles and establish a touch-point for the widely disparate and hybrid field. With a spectacular setting on Santorini, the conferences have been carefully planned to foster discussion and interaction between attendees to encourage the establishment of lasting professional relationships.  The meetings continue our efforts to promote systems neuroscience in Greece through creating a world-class forum for cutting-edge research.  
Organized by: Harvard Medical School & University of Chicago
Invited Speakers: Our confirmed speakers include many global luminaries in the field of Computational and Systems Neuroscience.

Registration: Conference fees will be finalized shortly before registration opens, but are anticipated to be USD 500 for students, USD 700 for post-docs, USD 900 for faculty members or professionals, and USD 1500 for on-site registrants, space permitting. On-site fees are considered full price; the other levels are discounted thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. Registration fees are payable in USD by credit card. While we will endeavor to keep registration fees as stated here, they are subject to change without notice until registration has opened.

Registration fees cover coffee breaks, hot lunches, the Welcome Reception, the Gala Banquet, and an optional excursion. Attendance will be strictly limited by the capacity of the conference center. Registration is separate from proposal submission. Once registration has filled, a waiting list is established; at previous meetings, only a few people on the waiting list were eventually offered a registration spot. If the conference is full, on-site registrations will not be accepted.

COVID Policy. Detailed pandemic-related restrictions for the meeting will be established once the EU and Greek governmental policies have been set for the conference period. At present, we anticipate that masking and proof of full vaccination including boosters will be required.

Refund Policy. If you have registered but will be unable to attend, a full refund of the paid fees will be given until 31 May 2022, a 50% refund will be given from then until 14 June 2022, and no refund will be given after 14 June 2022.

Registration has not yet opened. To be sent an email reminder when registration opens, please add yourself to the Google Group for Official AREADNE Announcements. In previous years, we have sold out just with presenters of submitted abstracts prior to the official opening of registration; in these cases, when we open registration, delegates who are not poster presenters are offered a spot on the waiting list.
