Ernst Strüngmann Institute Systems Neuroscience Conference (ESI SyNC) 2021
The natural brain: understanding neuronal computation in its natural habitat
This year’s fully virtual conference will be held from August 30 - September 1. It creates a platform for pluralistic, interdisciplinary perspectives which aim to unify diverse ideas from different but profoundly interconnected disciplines. The goal is to promote research that attempts to study the brain as defined by neuroethological principles, taking into account ecological, rather than anthropomorphized definitions of behavior. The conference aims to explore the concept of a natural brain through different lenses: neuroscience, behavior, ecology, art.

And a special screening and talk by Jenna Sutela who works with words, sounds, and other living media, including bacteria and the “many-headed” slime mold. Her audiovisual pieces, sculptures, and performances seek to identify and react to precarious social and material moments, often in relation to technology.
Abstract Submission for ESI DataBlitz
10 min. talk + 10 min. Q&A session = ESI DataBlitz
Abstracts are submitted upon registration for the conference or as PDF by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each participant is allowed to submit one abstract as first author. Once selected, the participant will be asked to prepare and submit a short 10-minute talk (a DataBlitz), with an additional 10 minute Q&A session. Selected abstracts and talk contributions will be published via the online platform of the virtual conference and will be accessible for all registered participants. The submission deadline is July 15, 2021.
Abstracts for the ESI DataBlitz should aim to be 300 words. This doesn’t include title, authors, and affiliations. Abstracts should contain an introduction, methods and results sections, and a conclusion, highlighting the significance, novelty, and relevance to the topic of The Natural Brain. All abstracts must be submitted in final form.
The Abstract Review Committee reviews and rates all submitted abstracts. Reviewers are chosen according to their expertise matching the topic of the submitted abstract.

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
