GliSyn - 2015

The second edition of the International Bordeaux Neurocampus - Brain Conferences is scheduled from September 30 to October 2, 2015. “ G l i S y n ” for “Astrocytes and microglia, key partners in synaptic transmission”, will focus on the possible partnership of two glial cells, astrocytes and microglia, in synaptic transmission. It will take place at the Institut d’Optique d'Aquitaine (a part of the Institut d'Optique Graduate School) at Talence, southwest of the famous city of Bordeaux, on the University campus of Bordeaux.

Although astrocytes and microglia share common features, the astrocyte and microglia fields are growing independently. The goal of this conference is to gather for the first time scientists from both fields. Three sessions will be dedicated to the influence of the two types of glial cells at the synapse during development, in adult physiology and in pathology.

Renowned Speakers were there to brainstorm with more than 150 researchers, coming from all over the world. The scientific program of this meeting was based on plenary lectures made by world-class personalities, young scientists talks selected on their abstracts by the Scientific Committee, and Poster sessions. Finally, discussion was organized to discuss about the possible partnership of astrocytes and microglia in synaptic transmission.

A gala dinner was proposed in a prestigious vineyard, located in the Pessac-Leognan appellation, the Château Carbonnieux a Grand Cru Classé (Classified Growth) of the Graves appellation for both its red and white wines.
