International Workshop on Dynamical Olfaction, 30 June – 2 July, 2010, Brighton, UK

June 30, 2010 @ 00:00 July 2, 2010 @ 23:59 CEST

First call for Abstracts, International Workshop on Dynamical Olfaction, 30 June – 2 July, 2010, Brighton, UK

Animals are able to experience complexly structured plumes of different combinations of chemicals as individual olfactory percepts. It appears that the olfactory system utilizes rich temporal dynamics to achieve this goal but exactly how is still an open challenge for modern neuroscience. In the last few years rapid progress has been made in our understanding of olfactory information processing. In this focused workshop on Dynamical Olfaction we will share recent developments, both experimental and theoretical, between the active researchers in the field.

Confirmed keynote speakers include:

  • Maxim Bazhenov, University of California Riverside, USA
  • C. Giovanni Galizia, University of Konstanz, Germany
  • Hong Lei, The University of Arizona, USA
  • Johannes Reisert, Monell Chemical Senses Center, USA
  • Mark Stopfer, National Institutes of Health, USA
  • Massimo Vergassola, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France

The programme committee is formed by

  • Jean-Pierre Rospars, INRA Versailles
  • Dominique Martiney, LORIA Nancy & INRA Versailles
