Meeting Description

The meeting will cover several aspects of synaptic function, ranging from synaptic proteostasis and architecture to neuropsychiatric disorders and the molecular underpinnings of neural circuit function. Because the number of participants will be limited to approximately 100, we can promise an interesting small conference with intense discussions in a relaxed atmosphere. The meeting will start in the evening on September 18 and end on the morning of September 21 with an optional social tour. There will be poster presentations, and the best posters will be selected for short oral presentations. The speakers who have agreed to participate, including two plenary speakers, are as follows:
