The Conference on Frontiers in Olfaction will be held in Trieste (Italy) from 24 to 28 July 2017.
This event is organized by ICTP, V. Murthy, M.Vergassola, A.Menini, A. Celani and sponsored by ICAM, ECRO and SISSA. The call for applications is now open at the Conference web page: http://indico.ictp.it/event/7979/overview . Contact: EricaSarnataro (ICTP Conference Assistant): email@example.com
There is no registration fee. A limited number of grants are available from ICTP to support the attendance of selected participants, with priority given to participants from developing countries. Deadline for submitting applications: 23 April 2017 (For applicants NOT requesting ICTP financial support: 1 June 2017). In addition, ECRO will support 2 travel grants to facilitate participation of young scientists not supported by ICTP.
Aim: Driven by novel experimental techniques, including next-generation sequencing, optogenetics, and imaging/recordings in awake behaving animals, the field of Olfaction is undergoing an explosive growth. A variety of computational and theoretical models have been proposed to explain the data. In an attempt to evaluate the current state of the research, this workshop will bring together researchers in physics, chemistry, biochemistry, computer science, behavioural sciences, neurophysiology, basic biology, and genomics.
Invited speakers: F. Albeanu, U. Bhalla, L. Buck, A. Carleton, M. Dickinson, S. Firestein, A. Fleischmann, B. Hansson, C. A. Greer, T. Holy, A. Koulakov, P. Latham, P.-M. Lledo, S. Lomvardas, P. Mombaerts, D. Rinberg, A. Schaefer, A. Seminara, N. Sobel, P. Szyszka, L. Vosshall.

Summer School Human Olfaction 2017 - Dresden, Germany
Aim: The conference is meant to provide an informal platform for scientific exchange between established scientists and younger researchers in the fields related to chemosensation. In addition, it is meant to provide participants with up-to-date knowledge on various aspects of the human chemical senses not only through seminars - there will be a strong focus on practical demonstrations and experiments (see program).
Location: It will be organized through the Smell & Taste Clinic of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology of the University of Dresden Medical School, Fetscherstrasse 74, 01307 Dresden, Germany, phone +49-351-458-4189. The meeting will start at the lecture hall/vicinities ("Hörsaal") of house number 19 at the area of the University Clinic Dresden, House number 21, and later continue at the Departement of Otorhinolayrnygology (house number 5).
Fee for participation is 300 Euro (for details please click here). Participants with an industrial background pay 1000 Euro.This fee covers conference dinner at Schloss Eckberg, a barbecue, and an excursion to the surroundings of Dresden. The number of applicants will be limited to 32.
