Bordeaux Neurocampus Conferences

The Bordeaux Neurocampus Conferences are a serie of Neuroscience meetings, organized in Bordeaux, France.

The purpose of the conferences is to present and discuss recent findings in a topic field in Neuroscience, bringing together leading international experts and young researchers. The maximum number of participants is 250, including invited speakers. The scientific program is organized jointly by members of Bordeaux Neurocampus and the LabEx Brain.

The Bordeaux Neurocampus Conferences are 3-day meetings that take place in autumn at Bordeaux University, France. About 20 presentations are given by invited speakers, and the schedule encourages lively discussion, in particular during the poster sessions.

The first edition of the international Bordeaux Neurocampus Conferences was in October 1st to 3rd, 2014. “MitoBrain” for ‘Mitochondrial Functions and Dysfunctions in the Central Nervous System, focused on the role of mitochondria in the cells in the Central Nervous System (neurons and glia), in normal and pathological states.

The second edition was from September 30th to October 2nd, 2015. “GliSyn” for “Astrocytes and microglia, key partners in synaptic transmission”, focused on the possible partnership of two glial cells, astrocytes and microglia, in synaptic transmission. It took place at the Institut d’Optique Graduate School of Talence, southwest of the famous city of Bordeaux, on the University campus of Bordeaux.

Entitled "Probing neuronal circuits during behavior", the 3rd Bordeaux Neurocampus Conference gathered world-leader experts in optical microscopy, electrophysiology, optogenetic, and computations for measuring and manipulating synapses, neurons and neuronal circuits at the cutting edge of brain investigation in freely behaving animals.
The 2016 conference held from September 28th to 30th at the Haut-Carré (Agora area) at Talence.

Next edition 2017 is scheduled from September 27th to 29th. "Past, Present, and Future of the Brain Research" will take place in the Centre Broca Nouvelle-Aquitaine (previously the Neurocampus building) and will gathered the whole Bordeaux Neurocampus community around the most prominent neuroscientists coming from a wide horizon.
