Satellite Workshops

Satellite Workshops of the Bernstein Conference provide a stage to discuss topical research questions, novel scientific approaches and challenges in Computational Neuroscience and related fields.
In 2020 all workshops will be held online in a timezone-friendly manner.


Date & Format

Tuesday, September 29, 2020
2 pm - 10 pm CEST

starting time for all workshops: 2 pm CEST
flexible duration: min 4 hrs, max 8 hrs

The new online format provides us with the opportunity to allow fluid boundaries for the workshop schedules. Without the restriction given by venue requirements it is now possible to flexibly plan workshops of durations between 4 - 8 hrs. All workshops will be held in parallel online sessions and be moderated by the workshop organizers.
