The 7th biannual EMCCS meeting will be held in Copenhagen at The Lundbeckfond Auditorium on June 30th and July 1st, 2016 immediately before the FENS meeting. This meeting will be very special because it will be the 1st Join Meeting of EMCCS and EBBS. After the success of our last meeting in Milan, this year the program will again include two full days of exciting science.

The meeting will survey recent discoveries in the field of molecular and cellular cognition. There will be 27 oral presentations including 8 speakers chosen from submitted abstracts. As in previous occasions, we intent to have a "Wine&Cheese" poster session in the evening of June 30th.
