The meeting will focus on intrinsic mechanisms of size and growth regulation in neurons. These mechanisms are critical in both embryonic growth and regenerative repair of the nervous system. The speakers provide representation for work focused on axons and dendrites, as well as the somatic compartment, and the communication between them. Different model systems will be highlighted, including invertebrates and vertebrates. In addition to invited talks, a significant fraction of the program will feature talks selected from abstract submissions, and ample time will be reserved for poster and discussion sessions.

Please join us and contribute to the presentations and discussions.
