Dear Participant,

We regret to inform you that we have to postpone the 2020 DAC meeting on “Plasticity and Dynamics in the Visual System". This is due to new directives from the Israeli Ministry of Health regarding the evolving Coronavirus: these directives limit entry to Israel from many Asian countries and now also from Italy, and require the cancellation of international meetings to be held in Israel in the near future. As a consequence of these directives, the Weizmann Institute management announced postponement of all international meetings that were scheduled for this March on campus, including our meeting.

As you can appreciate from the speakers’ lineup, this was about to be a super exciting meeting, and we hate to give up on it. Therefore, we were able to secure an alternative date next year: accordingly, the conference will be held on April 25-28 2021, in a similar format here at the Weizmann Institute in Israel.

We would love to have you join us then!

With sincere apologies and wishes for good health,

Michal & Ivo.

P.S.

If necessary (for airfare cancellation tickets etc.) please note the directives of the Israeli ministry of health regarding cancellations of international conferences in Israel.

******************************************************************************************************

This meeting will bring together neuroscientists interested in experience-dependent changes in sensory processing along the visual pathway and in the underlying mechanisms at level of genes, cells and circuits. Among the exciting frontiers that we wish to explore are how the plasticity of one circuit may affect visual processing in the other circuits and how insights into the underlying molecular mechanisms may help to understand these interdependencies. This meeting will be composed of sessions devoted to different circuits along the visual pathway, starting from the retina up to the cortex (and maybe beyond?).

The conference will include a poster session and slots for short talks are available and will be filled based on selected abstracts.

Registration is free, and travel grants will be awarded based on submitted abstract.
