No Garland Neuroscience

These are exciting times for Neuroscience. There is a sense that something big is around the corner and it is going to change the way we think.

We started NGN as an experiment, an attempt to organize a much-needed Neuroscience meeting that is low-cost in both logistics and time without compromising scientific content. Given the participation and the scientific payback last time, we think this should become a tradition. The second edition of NGN (Jan 2 - 4, 2020) promises to be NGN-1 and much more. We would like to thank DBT Wellcome India Alliance for generously supporting for this conference.

To keep things simple, sustainable, minimise time costs, and keep the focus on science, we ask participants to fund their own trip. We especially encourage participation from students and postdocs. Please contact us if you need an invitation letter so that you can use your contingency funds to attend NGN.



2 - 4 Jan, 2020

The program will include research talks, discussions and poster sessions over the first two days. On the final day, we will take our science outdoors - A trip to the Western Ghats. We expect to announce a detailed schedule in the first week of December.

Students and faculty at IISER are happy to 'adopt a neuroscientist (AAN)'. Visiting students and faculty can share quarters via the AAN program in our hostel and faculty housing for free. We have a daycare on campus that is happy to accommodate visiting neurotoddlers and neuropreteens. Feel free to bring your family along and turn NGN into a 'workation'. Also, bring a musical instrument/sense of humor along for open mike night.
