HOW DOES THE BRAIN KNOW WHERE IT IS,
WHERE IT IS GOING,
AND HOW TO GET FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER?
In 2016, researchers from a variety of disciplines surrounding the cognitive neuroscience of navigation met in
the Austrian mountains to discuss new discoveries, important unsolved questions in the field, and the way
forward. This meeting was well attended and highly oversubscribed. We are pleased to announce, therefore,
the second iNAV meeting, to be held in June 2018 in Québec, Canada.
As before, the meeting aims to bring together a diverse group of scientists from backgrounds such as systems
neuroscience, human cognitive (neuro)science, animal behavior, theoretical neurobiology and robotics. The
format for the meeting will be similar to our last meeting where there will be about 60 speakers giving 20 min
presentations. There will be opportunities for everyone attending to either present a talk or a poster. Please
note that your students and post-docs are welcome to attend as well.
