Our neuromatch team strives to make the neuroscience community better by addressing diversity and inclusivity. Therefore, we support initiatives including early-career scientists, neuroscience events, hackathon, summer schools, students who want to learn neuroscience, etc. Please email or reach out to organizers if you want to be a part of it. Below is the list of our companions:
We partner with eLife journal where they host online seminars to support early-career researchers during COVID-19 pandemic. They want to make sure early-career researchers (ECRs) can continue to communicate their latest work to their peer. Please check out the full details and their talks at neuromatch here.
This is one way that you can keep connecting with the community. BrainWeb is a permanent online space for neuroscience collaboration: to work together no matter where we are. Kicking-off on April 6, 2020, at 3 PM UTC, followed by a 3-days Hackathon. Find more information and join the community on our website brain-web.github.io and follow us on Twitter @TheBrainWeb.
Following the neuromatch 2.0 meeting, we will have an ancillary event: Neuroscience for Kosovo: neural circuits and dynamics during behaviour. The focus will be on mobilizing support and highlighting more exciting neuroscience research. It will fundraise for the XhM foundation whose aim is to motivate young Kosovans to pursue STEM careers through scholarships, mini-educational programs and other activities, and during these trying times, any additional proceeds will be donated to Kosovo’s COVID-19 relief programme. Everyone will be equally invited to participate. Please check out more information and support them here.
Announcing a one-off, student-centered, free virtual conference addressing all things working memory. This meeting – loosely modeled on neuromatch– to is meant provide a venue for trainees affected by recent conference cancellations to present their work and network with like-minded scientists. All are welcome, but presentations will be limited to undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdocs. The conference will be held June 1st-4th 2020, with live sessions from ~ 8 am and 6 pm EST (GMT -04). More information and a registration link can be found here.
