We like to thank all participants of the virtual ICAC2021 event for the fantastic atmosphere and lively discussions during the online meeting and gathering. Our special thank goes to the speakers Yves Boubenec, Dean Buonomano, Giovanni di Liberto, Mounya Elhilali, Jessica Grahn, Daniel Pressnitzer, Elena Rotondo, and Barbara Tillmann for their inspiring talks. We are looking forward to meeting you all face-to-face in September 3-7, 2022.
Postponed once again from 2020 to September 3 — 7, 2022,
Dorint Herrenkrug Parkhotel, Magdeburg, Germany
The conference continues the series with previous conferences held in Banff (Canada) in 2017, Lausanne (Switzerland) in 2012, Nottingham (UK) in 2006, and Magdeburg (Germany) in 2003, 2009, and 2014.
The scientific program, organized by a group of renowned international colleagues and by members of the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology Magdeburg, will cover a wide range of topics and will provide unique opportunities to discuss current ideas of auditory cortex functions and concepts in humans and animals. In addition to keynote lectures and main talks, there will be short presentations and ample time for posters and for discussions, including possibilities for meetings of PhD students and young investigators with the keynote and main speakers. There will also be pre-conference workshops.
The setting of the meeting in the marvelous Herrenkrug Parkhotel right next to the Elbe river has, in the past, provided a relaxed yet stimulating atmosphere for scientific discussions. We are confident this spirit will linger also this time. We, the organizers of the conference, will do our best to care for this ambience by providing an excellent scientific program complemented by attractive social events. Still, if you need a break from it all, there are ideal possibilities for a range of other activities (wellness, golf, tennis, cycling, and much more).
We look forward to welcoming you in Magdeburg!
