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): firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
