In light of the rapid spread of the corona virus around the world, including Germany, the many measures taken here and elsewhere to slow it down, and the unpredictable future developments, we -the local and external organizers- have decided to postpone ICAC2020 meeting by one year. Health and safety of all our participants must have highest priority, and it is probably better to postpone the conference now than having to cancel it on short notice later. The most likely dates for ICAC2021 are now September 4 - 8, 2021 (same place). We hope you understand our decision and hope that we can still count on you next year.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Best wishes for now and stay healthy!!!
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.
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!
