In the annual Symposium we invite some enthusiastic researchers on a selected topic and we spend a day with various interested presentations, discussions, debates and of course an opportunity to get to talk with our academics in a more informal environment after the event. 

Our Symposium is being increasingly popular! Although 2020 has been a challenging year so far, our students association aims at keep providing as many events as possible digitally.

After the success of our Symposium 2019 ‘Criminal Minds’ this year we are very happy to present to you ‘Brain Bytes: Neuroscience, Artificial Intelligence, and beyond’!

Four exciting speakers will present you with their most recent, cutting-edge research. The Symposium will take place Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th of May, 17:30 – 19:30 via Zoom.

The event is free but in order to keep the quality of the presentation high, attendance will be capped at 80 participants, with registration necessary through this link.
