Bernstein PhD Symposium

Dear Students and Postdocs of the Bernstein Network,

As announced previously, this year's PhD Symposium after the Bernstein Conference will take place on Saturday, *September 15th 2012*, and will focus on the application, development and improvement of software tools inneuroscience . Furthermore, it will be combined with the 2nd annual INCF Hackathon, a gathering of developers and users of the very same tools.

The Symposium will feature a set of fast, rich and easily-digestible “Lightning Talks” (5-10 minutes) presenting diverse tools from our field. You will be able to inform yourself of many ongoing tool developments and foster your knowledge of  things that facilitate your research! Also you will be able to interact with the developers of your tool of choice and, in turn, provide inputs on the future developmental direction of your favorite software.

The main Symposium will take place in the morning. For those interested, the afternoon will feature sessions of social hacking, discussions and small group meetings, which will be arranged in an ad hoc fashion.  The whole day will be concluded with us enjoying a warm and sunny Bavarian evening while having drinks and barbecue on the beautiful outskirts of Munich!

When: Sat 15th 2012; 09.30 - 12.30 (- 18.00); Barbecue afterwards

Biocenter of the LMU
