The rmn² retreat in Oberwesel 8th to 10th June 2022.
The rmn² retreat in Oberwesel, which has been a major event in the neuroscience community of the Rhine Main area for many years now, will take place this year: 8./9./10. June 2022. It will start on Wednesday at 2pm and end on Friday at around lunch time. There will be - as usual - a number of high-ranking keynotes, talks by colleagues from the rmn², especially those who are new in the region, poster-talks and poster presentations.
The retreat will deal with reasearch areas under the following headings:
“Mind the Gap – from the Presynapse to the Postsynapse”
“Processing of Sensory Information”
“Cognition and Computation”
There will soon be a website for the event and we will let you know how to register!
Especially for PhD candidates it will be interesting to apply for a poster talk by handing in an abstract of 250 words with the registration.
If you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact Martina Diehl or Gabi Lahner who are the core organizing team.
