Conferences and Student Retreat

We help you train your presentations skills and build interdisciplinary connections and collaborations

Conference participation
Doctoral students are required to present their data in a poster as well as give a talk at least once during their doctorate. Adequate locations to perform these presentations are appropriate international conferences in your field of studies, the annual Bonn Brain3 meeting, Sunposium , or the yearly BIGS Neuroscience Student Retreat.

BIGS Neuroscience Student Symposium
BIGS Neuroscience performs an annual student symposium, which is a great opportunity for students to get feedback on their research, discover more about the different projects going on in Bonn and spark fiery scientific debates with other PhD students. In addition, its aim is to connect BIGS Neuroscience students with doctoral students from the IMPRS for Brain and Behavior program as well as students from the Master Neuroscience program in Bonn.

Past Student Symposia
All former student symposia featured scientific talks and posters presentations by doctoral students, as well as key lectures given by international guest speakers. In the last two years,the poster-presenting students also performed a short “lightning” presentation of their poster, which served as an appetizer for their poster presentations during the poster sessions.
