HBP International Conference: Understanding Consciousness A scientific quest for the 21st century is organized by Human Brain Project (HBP) and will be held during Jun 21 - 22, 2018 at CaixaForum Barcelona, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Course Description: How does our subjective experience emerge from the brain? How does consciousness relate to the physical world? These age-old, deep questions are now at last being addressed directly and broadly by neuroscience and will become crucial in the decades to come. The spectrum of consciousness-related conundrums is rapidly expanding: we are saving islands of human brain from devastating injuries, growing cerebral organoids in a vat, and building intelligent machines that perform faster and better than any healthy subject, just to mention a few. Where does consciousness arise? Where is the boundary between insentient matter and a spark of subjectivity? Society needs to be scientifically and culturally prepared to face these emerging questions. To do so, an approach with the broadest scope is needed: diverse theoretical frameworks, brain anatomy, physiology, and chemistry across scales and species, detailed and large-scale computer simulations, deep learning, neuromorphic computing, robotics, clinical neurology, anaesthesiology, psychology, behavioural, computational, and philosophical analysis must interact and blend on a single infrastructure. These ingredients are naturally present in the Human Brain Project, and this workshop, stirred by world-leading scholars in the field, is where they come together for the first time in this multidisciplinary setting. Speakers: Larissa Albantakis, Catherine Tallon-Baudry, Wolf Singer, Pieter R. Roelfsema, Karl Friston, Olaf Blanke, Fabrice Wendling, Ned Block, Naotsugu Tsuchiya, Sean Hill, Melanie Wilke, Rodolfo R. Llinás, Nicholas Schiff. Time: 9:00 am to 8:00 pm Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Sharing the ‘Best Practices’ of Optometry is organized by Dr. Travel Seminars, LLC and will be held from Jul 01 - 08, 2018 at 7-Night - Spain & Italy Cruise, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. The target audience for this medical event is Optometrists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12 CE Credits. Conference Description : Would a “best practice” concept be a helpful way of evaluating ourselves? Of course, there is really no such thing as an average optometric practice. Still, it is interesting to think through this concept to see if what follows might function as a “template for excellence” knowing that one size does not fit all. While no guideline can replace the clinical decisions made by an optometrist in the course of caring for an individual patient’s health problem, the suggestions contained in this seminar are based on the best available published evidence. Best practices are defined as business or professional procedures that are accepted or prescribed as being correct or most effective. Often times in both our professional and personal lives we discover best practices through trial and error, sometimes even by accident. When you discover strategies and methods that consistently lead to positive results, you’re on the road to a more fulfilling and successful life as an optometrist. Courses : • What’s New in Optometry • Success Principles for the OD • Pharmaceutical & Nutraceutical Update • Age-Related Macular Degeneration & Retinal Disease Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Jul 02 - 06, 2018 | EUR €400 | Molecular Biology
Integrative modelling of biomolecular interactions is organized by European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and will be held from Jul 02 - 06, 2018 at Barcelona Supercomputing Center - National Supercomputing Center, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Conference Description : This EMBO Practical Course will present docking-based computational methods and related bioinformatics approaches, aiming at predicting how proteins interact with other biomolecules or ligands. Further, protein-peptide and protein-ligand interaction, as well as the young field of genome structure determination from sequencing information will also be covered to broaden the scope of the course beyond traditional protein-protein interactions. Proteins and their intricate network of interactions are the mainstays of any cellular process. Dissecting these networks at atomic detail is invaluable, as this paves the route to a mechanistic understanding of biological function and provides the first essential step toward the development of new drugs. Because of the challenges associated with experimental techniques, structural biologists have to resort more and more these days to complementary computational methods. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
