Together with the organizers, we warmly invite you to a unique meeting of young scientists – Neuronus IBRO Neuroscience Forum 2022, which this year will be held in a fixed form in Krakow. It is already the twelfth edition of the event, which is organized by students of Jagiellonian University and brings together participants from all over the world. The conference will take place from 15-17 October 2022 in the maximum hall of Jagiellonian University.
The Neuronus IBRO Neuroscience Forum 2022 is an international, interdisciplinary conference to be held at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. This is its twelfth edition. Due to its long presence in society, it has solidified its position as one of the leading events dedicated to neuroscience in Europe, through which we can observe the collision of two worlds – the enthusiastic field of science development for the younger generation and the space of experienced professors who are experts in their fields.
Neuronus IBRO Neuroscience Forum
The Neuronus IBRO Neuroscience Forum is the largest periodic conference on neuroscience in Poland and the whole of Central and Eastern Europe, and the largest conference-specific brand of the internationally acclaimed Jagiellonian University. The event organized in Krakow brings together PhD students and students from all over the world. Its main objective is to create a platform for researchers at different stages of their careers. It facilitates the free exchange of ideas and experiences and provides the opportunity to present your research, often for the first time, to a critical international audience, and also facilitates the creation of valuable connections with scientists representing different fields of neurobiology.
In addition, the conference offers a wide range of opportunities related to internships and jobs as part of Neuronus Careers. A rich conference program covering many aspects of Neuroscience presents the latest research trends, inspiring young scientists to conduct innovative research. The organizers also aim to promote the positive image of Krakow and Jagiellonian University as a dynamic center for research into the nervous system.
Previous editions of the conference brought together a total of more than 3,000 participants from more than 100 scientific institutions and universities, affiliated in 34 countries. In the latest edition of the conference, which was held remotely due to the pandemic crisis, there were more than half a thousand participants and 318 active participants from all over the world (including, from outside Europe, for example from India, Iran, Mexico, Israel and the USA. Canada), whose lectures made up 60 percent. Conference speeches. Despite the remote form of the recent edition of the conference, the event is scheduled for 2022 in stationary form at the Auditorium Maximum, the largest conference complex at the Jagiellonian University.
The event was divided into four thematic groups – Cognitive Neuroscience, Biological Neuroscience, Computational Neuroscience and Medical Neuroscience.
The first provides psychological and physiological research related to the processing of emotions and cognition. The second block is the study of the basic mechanisms of neurobiology, such as the basis of neurodegenerative diseases. The Computational Cluster focuses on research in the field of neuroinformatics, such as the development of artificial neural networks. The final section presents neurological and psychiatric issues as well as clinical cases in the field of nervous system diseases.
The plan includes, among others, oral presentations, poster sessions and public lectures by experts in their fields. This year’s invitation was accepted by: Laurie Nomenma (Turku Pet Center, Finland), Florian Engert (Harvard University, USA), Marina Bedney (Johns Hopkins University, USA), Susanna Herculano Huzel (Vanderbilt University, USA). USA), Mathias. Schmidt (Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Germany) and Charles Hellmann (Northeastern University, USA).
when and where?
The conference will take place from 15-17 October 2022 in the maximum hall of Jagiellonian University. On the day before the conference (14 October), there will be a workshop for young scientists on scientific data analysis and career prospects in neurobiology, providing a unique opportunity to gain valuable experience and broaden skills.
Everyone who is interested not only in brain research, but also in programming, data mining and machine learning, we also encourage you to familiarize yourself with the Brainhack 2022 Hackathon – the satellite event of the conference, which will be held from October 21-23.
In its current form, the IBRO Neuroscience Forum has been jointly organized since 2012 by two colleges at Jagiellonian University – the School of Biology and the School of Philosophy – under the auspices of the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO). The conference has been organized for more than ten years by students, doctoral students and staff of the Institute of Zoology of Jagiellonian University, Institute of Psychology of Jagiellonian University and Institute of Pharmacology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, putting a lot of heart and effort into it without any gratification.
