Welcome to the Neurofly 2016 website!
It is our pleasure to announce the 16th European Neurobiology of Drosophila biennial Conference (Neurofly 2016) to be held in Platanias, Chania, on the beautiful island of Crete, Greece on September 2-6, 2016.
The 2016 European Neurobiology of Drosophila Conference will build on the well-earned reputation of previous Neurofly conferences and follow its long-standing tradition of featuring talks by leading scientists addressing a broad range of questions at the forefront of current Neurobiology using Drosophila as a model. The program will include formal oral and poster presentations, but also informal get-togethers and social functions designed to promote interactions, stimulate discussions and catalyze future collaborations. All participants are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts of their most up to date research for consideration as an oral or poster presentation.
Crete is the largest island in Greece. The spectacular natural beauty of its landscape, its sandy beaches and its mild Mediterranean climate attract visitors from around the world seeking rest, inspiration and to indulge in the original Mediterranean diet. It is an island of unique interest renowned for its historic importance and archaeological sites of the Minoan civilization. Exploring the unique Cretan nature and antiquities and experiencing the famous Greek hospitality promises a wonderful setting for networking with colleagues while drinking a glass of raki!
