Baikal Neuroscience Meeting 2019

International Conference “Baikal Neuroscience Meeting 2019”

The Baikal Neuroscience Meeting 2019 will take place on the lake Baikal in Siberia from June 02 to June 08, 2019.
The conference themes include development of cortical neuronal networks, neuron-glia interactions, cortical circuits in health and disease, function and plasticity of synapses.
All together, we are planning to have between 25–30 international and Russian speakers.
The conference will take place in a small hotel located at biostation Bolshie Koty on the lake, approximately 50 miles from Irkutsk.
Lake Baikal is the deepest and largerst freshwater lake by volume in the world, surrounded by national park. The lake was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.
The Conference Fee includes transfers, accommodation (including 2 nights in Irkutsk upon arrival and departure), full board, conference package, welcome dinner, two short hiking tours, one boat tour.
Optional individual tours (4-5 days on boat tour or/and 2-3 days hiking tour with tents) after the meeting will be available. Please contact organizers in advance for additional information.
