Welcome to AXON 2015!

The Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria)
will be the host of the first European Conference on Axon Guidance, Circuit Development and Regeneration (AXON2015) which will be held from September 20-23 in Klosterneuburg near Vienna.

The major goal of the AXON2015 meeting is to provide a forum for the exchange of results and ideas in the rapidly advancing fields of nerve cell polarization, axon guidance, synapse formation, circuit assembly, and neuronal regeneration. There is increasing overlap among these disciplines and some of the most outstanding recent advances have been achieved by research at the intersection of these different areas. In particular, it is now apparent that diverse neurological diseases can trace their origins to defects in early mechanisms of neuronal wiring. By bringing together scientists working in these diverse areas, including the clinically relevant field of regeneration, we hope to inspire new insights, collaborations and new research directions.
