NeNa 2018 will host a number of workshops to provide a casual framework for discussing topics of interest or valuable experiences, teaching and learning methods or scientific survival skills.
You know how to use a specific software or technique that could be useful to others? You can draw the prettiest neurons? You have a crazy idea of how to change the face of science forever? You want to participate in the dance your PhD – contest and need a bunch of extras? Then apply for teaching a workshop at NeNa! For GTC-students, teaching a workshop counts as active participation in NeNa, which earns credit points and exempts you from the conference fee.
If you don’t want to teach a workshop yourself, but you have an idea of a workshop that you would love to see, let us also know – we might be able to find someone to teach it.
- be vaguely related to or relevant for neuroscience or science in general
- fit in a timeslot of about 30-90 minutes
- be taught in Schramberg on one of the three days of NeNa2018 (September 24-26)
- be designed for about 10-30 participants, as we will likely have two workshops in parallel.
To give you an idea of whether your dream workshop fits in, here is a list of a few topics we had in the past:
- Preparing figures with Adobe Illustrator
- Reference Management Tools
- Hike with Mike, Visual Illusions
- Giving Presentations
- Entrepreneurialism & Startups
And another list of topics we haven’t had so far, but that come to our mind as potentially interesting:
- Applying for grants
- Find the right Postdoc / PhD / lab / academic career
- Reproducibility / p-hacking / scientific conduct
- Git & version control
- Open Science / Preregistration / …
- What do we need to understand the brain?
- Diversity in Science
- Science & Sustainability
Don’t hesitate to apply – at this point there is no need for a fully worked-out workshop. Just hit us with your idea, and we can work together to figure out whether your idea fits in and how to make it a success.
