CeNeuro 2022 will finally take place in-person in July!

Dear friends of worm neurobiology, 

After a long corona break it is time to meet and discuss again!
CeNeuro 2022 will finally take place as an in-person meeting at the University of Vienna July 24-27, 2022! Register here.

It would be great to see as many of you as possible in Vienna this summer, forward this link to interested colleagues, students, and postdocs.

Remember these deadlines:
Registration deadline will be May 22nd  
Abstract submission deadline will be May 15th

Best regards,
The organizers of C. elegans Neuro 2022 

Update on CeNeuro2022

Dear Participants of CeNeuro 2022,

We look forward to a rich and stimulating meeting this summer! To remind everyone, the date is set for July 24-27, 2022.

As uncertainty around the world continues, we cannot make a decision on the format at the moment. We desperately hope to be able to organize a hybrid meeting and welcome as many people as possible in person, in Vienna. However, we will re-evaluate this decision in mid/end of March and and if a hybrid meeting is not possible, we will still hold an online only meeting.

Regardless of the final format, please note that the deadline for abstract submission will be at the end of April. Thank you for your patience and understanding of the challenges associated with organizing such events at the moment.

We wish you a wonderful 2022,

The CeNeuro2022 organizers – Henrik Bringmann, Luisa Cochella, Alexander Gottschalk, Manuel Zimmer.
