Registrations will be accepted on a first come-first served basis. Please note that the number of available places is limited. Please register here. The minischool registration fee includes the dinner on January 5th evening (but not the lodging of the night Jan 5-6 and the lunch of January 6th). The conference registration fee includes the bus transportation Grenoble-Autrans (round trip) as well as meals and lodging in Autrans for the conference from January 6th to January 8th.
You may submit an abstract for a talk in one of the 5 sessions (4 will be selected as talks for each session; the others will be assigned posters) or for a poster. You may also propose a demo of a system or software at the special demo session on Friday Jan 8th in the afternoon. Please submit your abstract here (for a talk, a poster or a demo).
NOTE FOR POSTER PRESENTERS: PANELS ARE 120cm wide and 180cm high
The annual conference of the GdR 2904 on Multielectrode Systems for Neuroscience is a very interdisciplinary event gathering highly complementary scientific communities. On one side, scientists and engineers developing new technologies and methods allowing large-scale interfacing of the central nervous system (brain, retina, spinal cord) with arrays of electrodes or optic sensors elaborated using micro and nano-technologies. On the other side, neuroscientists using these approaches to either explore the dynamics of the CNS at a fundamental level, and/or develop rehabilitation strategies using neural prosthesis and brain-computer interfaces. Thus, this meeting specifically aims at:
Fostering interactions between developers and users of multielectrode systems
Inviting international and national leaders in the development and use of large-scale multielectrode or optical interfacing systems
Allowing young scientists to present their work through either oral or poster presentations
Offering an opportunity for companies to present state-of-the-art technologies to potential users
Presenting current technology needs in neuroscience research and clinics to technologists
Training young researchers to the field of extracellular electrophysiology, the use of multielectrode systems and the corresponding analysis methods and tools
Providing a time for ethical discussion about large scale interfacing of the CNS
