The 622. Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Seminar on "Neuronal Mechanics" (August 17-19, 2016, Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Hauptstrasse 5 in 53604 Bad Honnef, Germany) brings together young and experienced scientists from biophysics, biology, chemistry and medicine with an interest in understanding how mechanical interactions between cells in the nervous system and their environment contribute to neuronal functioning.

The goal of the seminar is to foster discussion between scientists form different disciplines and at different career stages about cutting edge research at the interface of biophysics and neuroscience. Learn more about the scope of the seminar here.

The seminar will be held in English.

The program will begin with an introductory lecture followed by sessions consisting of keynote talks, invited research talks, and contributed talks, which will be selected from abstracts. There will be plenty of time for poster sessions, and every participant is encouraged to present a poster. The best posters will be awarded a prize. Find the list of invited speakers and program here.

The Wilhelm und Else Heraeus-Foundation kindly supports the accommodation of all participants and will cover full board accommodation during the seminar (beverages not included).
