2nd HBP Student Conference: Transdisciplinary Research Linking Neuroscience, Brain Medicine and Computer Science

External Event - 14th to 16th Feb 2018

14-16 February 2018, Ljubljana, Slovenia



In the context of the 2nd HBP Student Conference, young researchers from the fields of neuroscience, brain medicine and computer science receive the possibility to exchange ideas and perspectives and discuss various aspects of their particular fields of expertise relevant to the Human Brain Project. The conference offers a variety of discussion sessions, lectures and social events. Through working across boundaries and linking the various fields, it serves as a platform for both intra- and interdisciplinary exchange and is a great opportunity for extensive scientific discussions among peers and faculty, and also a fertile soil for new, innovative ideas.

Student talks

Poster presentations

Discussion panel

Social events

We are looking for original high-quality submissions containing innovative research from all fields relating to the HBP research programme. Contributions emphasising theoretical and empirical foundations are just as welcome as new approaches to specific questions concerning the Subprojects of the HBP. Finally, we particularly encourage submissions introducing new and relevant problems, concepts and ideas with the potential to inspire the research community – even if the approach is at an early stage of development.

All participants may submit an abstract and will have the opportunity to present their work. Presentations will include a brief oral presentation, a poster, or both.

Abstracts to be submitted before 11 October 2017.

Childcare will be offered during the conference. Participants have to indicate in the registration form if this service is required.

The venue

The conference will take place at the Central Post Office in Ljubljana. The Central Post Office is a late 19th-century building along the main street in the city centre, Slovenska. Its immediate neighbours are the Slon Best Western Hotel and the Nama department store, while the busy pedestrian ?opova Street separates it from the Old Town. 

The building features a particular function space – the Atrium, which is an attractive setting for receptions, banquets and other events. Its style slightly resembles the atrium of the National Museum, as the two buildings were created at about the same time.

Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, has a population of about 287.000 and ranks as one of the smaller European capitals. Thanks to more than 50,000 university students, this city with a history of several thousand years and an average population age of 41 years has an incredibly youthful feel. Harmonious coexistence of tradition and contemporaneity can be seen on many levels, from the city's diverse cultural production and creative society to its culinary art.
