A Prestigious Neuroscience Congress hosted by ELTE
The conference had 450 participants and the success was also reflected by the outstanding foreign and domestic speakers, as well as the 225 posters presented. Sixteen teachers and researchers, and twenty-nine students from our university presented their results. The papers delivered by ELTE contributors already attracted considerable interest on the spot, which therefore created a good basis for further scientific collaborations.
The satellite conference for young neuroscience researchers was held on the previous day, on 26 January. The papers delivered by HuNDoC students were followed by an audience of 120. Melinda Vitéz-Cservenák, research associate, and Attila Ignácz, PhD candidate, were members of the organising committee.
Árpád Dobolyi, university professor, and Katalin Schlett, habilitated associate professor, were chair and co-chair at the IBRO conference, respectively. The patrons of the conference were László Borhy, Rector of our university, and Imre Kacskovics, Dean of the Faculty of Science.
In addition to the university, the Science Patronage Programme of the NRDI Fund (MEC_SZ140942), Richter Gedeon Ltd., and the International Brain Research Organisation also made significant contributions to the organisation of the conference.
