Free Registration, Scholarships:

Scholarships (funded by the European Union) are offered to 38 young researchers of the EU and associated countries (under the age of 34 years). This will assist young postdoctoral fellows to become more conversant with features of brain structure essential for understanding the workings of the brain. The scholarships include travel costs, accommodation and subsistance as well as the free attendance of workshops. Young scientists selected have the obligation to give a lecture and/or presenting a poster regarding their own research, which should be related to human brain structure. The Conference has reserved a daily time slot for scientific contributions by these young scientists (Free oral communications; Sun. Oct. 6th - Wed. Oct. 9th 17:15-18:00).
Applications should be sent to the Scientific Secretariat and include: CV, copy of an identification document, summary of education in neuroscience, outline of research experience and statement of interest in participation.
