Young Neuroscientists Forum Ljubljana '15

Friday, 15 May 2015 | Kosovel Hall, Cankarjev dom

Young Neuroscientists Forum Ljubljana '15 (YNFL'15) is an introductory event into SiNAPSA Neuroscience Conference '15 (SNC'15; 15-17 May, 2015, Ljubljana, Slovenia).

A unique forum

To capitalize on the presence of outstanding scientists gathering at the SNC'15, the YNFL'15 will be organized as an introductory event of SNC'15. YNFL'15 will provide young neuroscientists at the beginning of their career with an opportunity to present their work, receive invaluable feedback, listen to eminent speakers, look into job opportunities, establish working relationships, and build friendships.

Present your work

Based on the review of all abstracts accepted for presentation at the YNFL'15, a selection of six was made and their authors were invited to give a brief oral presentation of their research at the YNFL'15 symposium on Friday, May 15th. A three-member committee will select one of these six presentations for the "Best YNFL'15 Presentation" award and the winner will be announced during the social event of the SNC'15.

All participants with accepted abstracts will present their work in the form of poster presentations. Presenters are advised to mount their posters on Friday morning and leave them up until the closing of the SNC'15.
