We would like to announce the upcoming Ribbon Synapses Seminar Series (RSSS) 2021, an online alternative to the long-running series of Ribbon Synapses Symposia (RSS). The RSS are specialized international conferences that have in the past been held in Göttingen, Germany.
This year’s RSSS is jointly organized by the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the Collaborative Research Center 889 “Cellular Mechanisms of Sensory Processing”. Owing to the pandemic-related travel difficulties it will be held online, aiming for a schedule of ~2-3 talks presented every ~2 weeks.
This seminar series aims to provide an online platform to not only bring together experts in the field, who will present and discuss novel data and provide a detailed overview of the current state of the art of ribbon synapse research, but additionally allow young scientists to present their work in form of a short talk.
Short talks are invited, please mail ed.negnitteog-inu.dem@988bfs to apply.
