The goal of the GDR NeuralNet annual meeting, on its 12th edition this year, is to develop and promote synergies between researchers, engineers, and other stakeholders engaged in measuring, manipulating, analyzing and interpreting neuronal activity.
After a 2-year pandemic hiatus, we are delighted to present the next meeting of the GDR NeuralNet. We look forward to welcoming the NeuralNet community to Lyon, the 21st-23rd September 2022. Registration is still OPEN.
The meeting will be preceded by the now-famous GDR NeuralNet Mini-School. PhD students, postdocs, engineers AND researchers welcome!
The school will provide a skillful mixture of theoretical overviews and hands-on programming.
(one day – 20th September – FREE REGISTRATION)

The GDR NeuralNet organizes a one week school on data analysis with python toolboxes for electrophysiology and Ca-imaging. This school will be held in-person in Lyon from October 18th to October 22nd in the amphitheater of the CRNL. The GDR NeuralNet brings together research teams engaged in measuring, manipulating, analyzing and interpreting neuronal activity.
Developers (or advanced users) of several important and useful python toolboxes for data analysis will be present to introduce the participants to the underlying theory behind these tools. Participants will be guided during a hands-on session on their own datasets.
Tentative schedule: Day 1 : optional python course, for non python programmers (Samuel Garcia) Day 2 : Information theory and connectivity using “frites” (Etienne Combrison, Andrea Brovelli) Day 3 : data manipulation and spike train analysis with “neo + elephant” (Julia Sprenger, Michael Denker) Day 4 : spike sorting with “spikeinterface/spyking-circus/tridesclous/” (Pierre Yger, Alessio Buccino, Samuel Garcia) Day 5 : pipeline for calcium imaging with “suite2p” (Owen Randlett)
The number of attendees is set to a maximum of 35. The school is open to everyone (Masters students, phd students, postdocs, PIs, engineers). The school is totally free but attendees need to pay for their travel, accommodation and food (aside from lunches, which will be provided). Please be aware that a EU Digital COVID certificate may be asked for according to the French government rules applicable in October.
Note: There is a potential risk of postponement (decision will be taken early in October). If the school is canceled, we will NOT make it virtual, because such an event requires a hands-on approach and interaction between attendees. However, we might simply postpone it to the end of the year if the situation improves. So if you register and want to book travel/hotel, please make sure to have all available cancelation options.
Comment l’activité neuronale collective sert-elle les fonctions du système nerveux? Le réseau de recherche « NeuralNet » a pour objectif de discuter des dernières recherches et des progrès récents réalisés dans le domaine. Cette réunion est également une occasion de développer et de promouvoir des synergies entre chercheurs, ingénieurs et autres parties prenantes partageant un intérêt commun pour la mesure, la manipulation, l’analyse et l’interprétation de l’activité neuronale.
Cette conférence du GDR (NeuralNet) aura lieu du 2 au 4 décembre 2019 au Centre Broca Nouvelle-Aquitaine sur le site de Bordeaux Neurocampus, avec 14 présentations d’expert-e-s de renommée mondiale, des posters et des présentations orales sélectionnées sur résumé. De plus, un atelier de formation sur le tri des potentiels d’action, l’analyse des données et la modélisation sera proposé aux participants (le 5 décembre).
Orateur-rice-s confirmé-e-s: H Monyer (1er keynote); M Brecht (2ème keynote); B Bathellier; D Di Gregorio; D Dupret; P Faure; G Girardeau; C Herry; D Omer; A Peyrache; D Popa; A Pouget; A Riehle; G Silberberg.

The 2018 GDR meeting will be held in Paris, 29 rue d’Ulm, on December 5th to 7th. The meeting will be entitled “Understanding Neural Networks : from Dynamics to Function”and will be preceded with the traditional minischool. Registration here
Dear all, dear friends of our amazing GDR NeuralNet
We are pleased to announce the 8th annual meeting of the GDR–NeuralNet, to be held at Strasbourg It will take place November 22nd-24th, 2017, just before the opening of the famous Christmas market!
Venue: College Doctoral Europeen (CDE), quarter esplanade, central campus of Strasbourg University.
It is also a pleasure to invite the young researchers of your labs (Doc and post-doc) to the mini-school on data analysis that will precede the meeting-(November 20th-22nd). The mini-school is organized by Samuel Garcia (Lyon), David Robbe (Marseille), Pierre Yger (Paris), Ad Aertsen (Freiburg, Germany).
The participation to the meeting and the mini-school is free but the registration is mandatory.
as we already announced last April, the 7th annual meeting of the GDR 2904 « NeuralNet » (ex-Multi-electrodes) will take place on October 12-14, 2016. Unfortunately, we had to change the location, now being held in Marseille, at the Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone (INT) on the Timone campus, same location as the 2012 meeting. It was not possible for administrative reasons to organize the meeting at the « centre de vacances » at Carqueiranne, but we are convinced that this new Marseille meeting will remain in your memory for years.
See attached the preliminary program. We are going to open a website in AZUR-colloque.fr for registration and payment. We will send you the link as soon as the website is functioning, probably next week. Deadline for registration and abstracts: October 1st, 2016. For poster abstracts, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including your abstract. Abstracts shouldn’t be larger than 1 page. As usual, we will select among the submitted poster abstracts some of them for short talks.
