Workshops and Tutorials

15 workshops and tutorials were offered by partner organisations and commercial partners to foster individual contacts. These events were meant to give useful information, especially for young scientists, or to discuss technical advances in various fields of neuroscience, with the emphasis on techniques, not on scientific results. The workshops were live events only.
