The joint conference of NIPS (National Institute for Physiological Sciences, National Institutes of Natural Sciences), PRI (Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University) and BRI was held on March 7 to 8, 2019 at Brain Research Institute, Niigata University.
This conference has been held annually since 2010, switching venues between NIPS and BRI every year. PRI has joined in since 2015. The yearly gathering offers sessions shared research findings from each institute, all of which creates vibrant discussion.
There were 10 podium talks and 29 poster presentations from NIPS, PRI and BRI, which attracted a total of 196 attendees in two days. This year, all the lectures were delivered in English to promote initiatives for institutes' internationalization. The venue brought scientists together in which many critical issues were discussed in depth and provided networking opportunities leading to prospective joint research.
We would like to thank all the attendees for their contributions to the conference.
