European Retina Meeting (ERM) 2013 Alicante

  • Conference Call
  • The Euro­pean Retina Meet­ing 2013 (ERM 2013) will be held in Ali­cante, Spain from Octo­ber 02 — 05, 2013. The meet­ing venue will be the Melia Hotel, one of the best hotels in Ali­cante, located in the mid­dle of the Harbor.

    As was the case for ERM 2007, ERM 2009 and ERM 2011, the focus will be on visual pro­cess­ing in the ver­te­brate retina, includ­ing anatom­i­cal, phys­i­o­log­i­cal patho­log­i­cal and mod­el­ling approaches.

    The goal of the ERM is to bring together retina spe­cial­ists from all over the world to facil­i­tate a wider exchange of ideas and con­cepts and to evoke stim­u­lat­ing dis­cus­sions about the com­plex mech­a­nisms that under­lie reti­nal processing.

    Ses­sion Topics

    • Bipo­lar, Hor­i­zon­tal and Amacrine cells
    • Gan­glion cells and com­pu­ta­tional systems
    • Muller Cells and Pig­ment Epithelium
    • Neu­ro­pro­tec­tion and Reti­nal Therapy
    • Non image form­ing visual system
    • Pho­tore­cep­tors
    • Synap­tic Trans­mis­sion in the IPL
    • Synap­tic trans­mis­sion in the OPL

    2013 Young Inves­ti­ga­tor Award

    Cam­bridge Uni­ver­sity Press and the Edi­to­r­ial Board for Visual Neu­ro­science are pleased to anounce a Young Inves­ti­ga­tor Award at the forth­com­ing Euro­pean Retina Meet­ing. A selec­tion com­mit­tee appointed by the con­fer­ence orga­niz­ers and edi­tor in chief will iden­tify a can­di­date for this award, drawn from the poster pre­sen­ta­tions made by all grad­u­ate and post-​doctoral researchers at the meeting.
