The Annual Meeting of the NeuroLeman Network and Doctoral Schools (NLN’24) will take place at the SwissTech Convention Center in Lausanne on Friday, August 30.

This year’s organizers are Lorenz Hirt, Manueal Mameli and Ron Stoop (CHUV-UNIL).

This year’s NLN will also mark the endpoint of the FENS – Chen Institute – NeuroLéman Summer School “Monitoring and manipulating the affective state: new perspectives on neurotechnologies and AI tools” and we are very happy to welcome the participants of the summer school in our meeting.

Registration is free for LNDS, EDNE and EDBB PhD candidates. Please register and submit your abstract (mandatory for LNDS candidates beyond their first year in the doctoral program!) before July 10.

Credit validation for LNDS & EDNE doctoral candidates: Attending the retreat earns 1 ECTS credit under the condition that doctoral candidates must (1) be first authors on a poster/presentation (2) and write a one-page document summarizing what they newly learned from the discussions and poster presentations of other participants. The document should be sent to the respective school coordinator (EDNE OR LNDS). In total, up to 2 such ECTS credits can be earned.

Each year, our annual meeting hosts several awards for the NeuroLeman PhD candidates and alumni to value their work and professional development.
