2nd HBP Student Conference
Transdisciplinary Research Linking Neuroscience, Brain Medicine and Computer Science

14-16 February 2018
Ljubljana, Slovenia


The 2nd HBP Student Conference provided an open forum for exchange of new ideas among young researchers working across various aspects of neuroscience, brain medicine and computer science relevant to the Human Brain Project. The scope of the conference offered a plethora of opportunities for extensive scientific discussions, both intra- and interdisciplinary, among peers and faculty through a variety of discussion sessions, lectures and social events.

Call for submissions

We invited original high quality submissions describing innovative research in all disciplines addressing the HBP research programme. Contributions emphasising theoretical and empirical foundations as well as novel approaches to specific problems with respect to the subprojects of the HBP were welcome. Finally, we particularly encouraged submissions with a potential to inspire the research community by introducing new and relevant problems, concepts and ideas, even if the work is at an early stage of development.

Participation in the 2nd HBP Student Conference was open to advanced master students, PhD students and young researchers, regardless of whether they were affiliated with the HBP or not and regardless of whether they made a submission to the scientific programme or not. Participation of young female investigators was highly encouraged.

Registration for the conference was mandatory.

Seven travel grants were available upon request for European students only (country of residence).
