Scientific discussion meeting organised by Dr John White FRS, Dr Stephen Larson, Dr Andre Brown, Dr William Schafer and Professor Netta Cohen
It has been 30 years since the "mind of the worm" was published in Philosophical Transactions. Predicting C. elegans’ behaviour from its wiring diagram has been an enduring challenge since then. This meeting will bring together neuroscientists, physicists, and engineers to discuss advances in neural activity imaging, behaviour quantification, and multiscale simulations and how they are bringing the goal of whole-animal modelling at cellular resolution within reach.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions B.
There will be a poster session on Monday 29 January. If you would like to apply to present a poster, please submit your proposed title, abstract (not more than 200 words and in third person), author list and affiliation, name of the proposed presenter and institution, with the subject line "Poster submission: C. elegans" to the Scientific Programmes team by Tuesday 2 January 2018. Please note that places are limited and are selected at the scientific organisers discretion. Poster abstracts will only be considered if the presenter is registered to attend the meeting
