NAD Symposium: Discoveries and Dialogue in Neuroscience

Neuroscience Academy Denmark and University of Southern Denmark's neuroscientists welcome neuroscience researchers at all levels to the new joint SDU campus for a one-day symposium.

Join the Discoveries and Dialogue in Neuroscience Symposium for a day of scientific talks, posters and networking. The event is relevant to researchers at all career levels, but it is a particularly valuable networking opportunity for early career neuroscientists.

Getting there

The event takes place at the University of Southern Denmark, Auditorium U1, Building 22A (level 1), Campusvej 55, 5230 Odense M.

The auditorium is easily accessible by tram from Odense station. Take the tram towards Hjallese Station and alight at ‘Campus Odense’.  Auditorium U1 is just inside the main entrance (on the left).

If arriving by car, please review this page for parking rules at SDU. Please note that the map on this page is not updated – see this map (in Danish) instead.

Poster overview

Download the poster overview here.

Each of the two poster sessions consists of 14 rounds of approx. 3 minutes, meaning that each poster participant will present their research to 14 (pre-defined) groups.

Posters with even numbers will present in session 1, while posters with uneven numbers will present in session 2.
