About the conference

The annual PhD conference of NRSN is organized exclusively by PhD students, for PhD students. This is the perfect arena to meet other students in neuroscience from all over Norway and to practice your conference and presentation skills in a friendly atmosphere. All participants must submit an abstract and present their projects during the conference, either in a plenary oral presentation, or in a combined poster- and "blitz" presentation. The "blitz" is a super brief presentation where participants advertise their own poster. The best presentation in each category will be awarded with a 6000 NOK prize! The program will also include lectures by two invited speakers, group work, discussions, and social activities. This year, our two keynote speakers are Michael Brecht  and Susana Lima. 

There is no conference fee, and NRSN will cover travel expenses and full-board accommodation for all participants.


Who can participate?

The conference is open to all members of NRSN, i.e., PhD candidates and research program ("forskerlinje") medical students who are working in the field of neuroscience and are affiliated with a Norwegian institution. Neuroscience is broadly defined and the conference aims at being equally relevant for basic and clinical researchers. We encourage students to attend from the very start of their research project to the last year of their PhD, as this gives them the chance to develop their professional network and improve their presentation skills over time, and to receive feedback on their projects at different stages.   

If you are not already a member of NRSN, you may register for the conference and apply for membership at the same time.
