The human brain is such a complex system that it can only be understood by combining knowledge and practices from multiple scientific fields. The 4th HBP Student Conference provides an open forum for the exchange of new ideas among young researchers working across various aspects of science relevant to the Human Brain Project (HBP). The conference offers a space for extensive scientific dialogue, both intra- and interdisciplinary, among peers and faculty through a variety of discussion sessions, lectures and social events.

We invite original high-quality submissions describing innovative research in all disciplines addressed in the HBP. These contributions can emphasise theoretical or empirical works relating to a wide spectrum of fields including but not limited to: neuroscience, computer science, robotics, medicine, psychology, cognitive science or philosophy. We particularly encourage submissions with a potential to inspire collaboration in the research community by introducing new and relevant problems, concepts, and ideas, even if the work is at an early stage of development.

A limited amount of financial support (fee waivers/travel grants) is available for participants who successfully submit an abstract for presentation in the conference.
