The 5th HBP Student Conference is taking place virtually from 1 to 4 February 2021

The HBP Education Programme is excited to announce that the 5th HBP Student Conference on Interdisciplinary Brain Science will take place virtually, with a versatile online schedule from 1 to 4 February 2021. Participation is open to the entire student community and early career researchers, regardless of whether they are affiliated with the Human Brain Project (HBP) or not.


About the Conference

The human brain is such a complex system that it can only be understood by combining knowledge and practices from multiple scientific fields. The 5th HBP Student Conference provides an open forum for the exchange of new ideas among early career researchers working across various sciences relevant to the HBP. Attendees will be exposed to the data-driven brain research approach of the HBP and have the opportunity to use the EBRAINS platform. The conference offers a space for extensive scientific dialogue, both intra- and interdisciplinary, among peers and faculty through a variety of discussion sessions, lectures, workshops and social events. It will take place virtually, organized and supported by the HBP Education Programme.

Call for Submissions

The Conference invites high-quality submissions describing innovative research in all disciplines addressed in the HBP. These contributions can emphasise theoretical or empirical work relating to a wide spectrum of fields including but not limited to: neuroscience, computer science, robotics, medicine, psychology, cognitive science or philosophy. The Conference organisers particularly encourage submissions with a potential to inspire collaborations in the research community by introducing new and relevant problems, concepts, and ideas, even if the work is at an early stage of development. Abstracts can be submitted via the Conference website, the deadline for abstract submission is 6 November 2020.
