Postponed from Aug 29 - Sept 2, 2020 to Saturday, Sept 4 to Wednesday, September 8, 2021
Dorint Herrenkrug Parkhotel, Magdeburg, Germany

The conference continues the series with previous conferences held in Banff (Canada) in 2017, Lausanne (Switzerland) in 2012, Nottingham (UK) in 2006, and Magdeburg (Germany) in 2003, 2009, and 2014.

The scientific program, organized by a group of renowned international colleagues and by members of the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology Magdeburg, will cover a wide range of topics and will provide unique opportunities to discuss current ideas of auditory cortex functions and concepts in humans and animals. In addition to keynote lectures and main talks, there will be short presentations and ample time for posters and for discussions, including possibilities for meetings of PhD students and young investigators with the keynote and main speakers. There will also be pre-conference workshops.

We will seek to provide several travel stipends and awards and will offer support for childcare and hearing-impaired participants.

The setting of the meeting in the marvelous Herrenkrug Parkhotel right next to the Elbe river has, in the past, provided a relaxed yet stimulating atmosphere for scientific discussions. We are confident this spirit will linger also this time. We, the organizers of the conference, will do our best to care for this ambience by providing an excellent scientific program complemented by attractive social events. Still, if you need a break from it all, there are ideal possibilities for a range of other activities (wellness, golf, tennis, cycling, and much more).

We look forward to welcoming you in Magdeburg!
