Champalimaud Research Symposium 2018
Quantitative approaches to Behaviour & Neural Systems
The 2018 Champalimaud Research Symposium, Quantitative approaches to Behaviour and Neural Systems, will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, from the 23rd to the 26th of October 2018. The goal of the Symposium is to define and address the challenges present in developing theory-oriented quantitative approaches to understanding the behaviour of organisms, the function and structure of their nervous systems, and the emergence of organization in complex adaptive systems. Seminars will span a range of levels from pure theory to data analysis and experimental work. As well as highlighting detailed investigations of specific problems, talks will emphasize the identification of general principles and key theoretical frameworks that should lay the foundation of the neuroscience and biology of the future. The Symposium will be structured as a single-track programme in which talks by invited speakers, as well as speakers selected from submitted abstracts, are interleaved with poster sessions where symposia participants present their research. Discussion sessions with panels composed by invited speakers will also be part of the programme. The event will be held at our Centre, in a stunning setting on the waterfront in Lisbon, and will also feature a social programme which will give participants the chance to explore this beautiful and historic city.
