2015-11-24. Registration for next year’s European Neuroscience Conference by/for Doctoral Students (ENCODS2016) opened October 1st.

ENCODS is a conference for PhD students at all stages of their PhD. Great communications skills are a vital part of disseminating science, which is why the program includes workshops evolving subjects like scientific writing and presentation skills. ENCODS is a great way for young scientists to interact with each other and with senior scientists in a different setting than usual, and serves as the optimal platform for the initiation of important collaborations across borders. We encourage all PhD students with an interest for Neuroscience to visit to read more about the conference and apply for the 2016 ENCODS. In total, 150 students will be selected to participate in the meeting, which will be held only 70 minutes by public transport from the airport in Copenhagen. ENCODS 2016 will take place June 29th ‐ July 1st, making it a perfect fit for attending the FENS 2016 in Copenhagen, starting immediately after.
