Welcome to the website of the GDR Neuralnet 2023 meeting!

We are thrilled to present you the next meeting of the GDR Neuralnet community.


GDR NeuralNet is a group of French research teams that gather to discuss about how collective neuronal activity underpins the functioning of the nervous system. These labs study a range of biological and artificial neural networks using population recording techniques, analytic approaches, and computational modelling.

The goal of the GDR NeuralNet annual meeting, on its 12th edition this year, is to develop and promote synergies between researchers, engineers, and other stakeholders engaged in measuring, manipulating, analyzing and interpreting neuronal activity.


The conference will take place on October 11-13, 2023 at the Campus Pharo of Aix-Marseille Université, in the beautiful gardens overlooking Marseille harbor.


We are thrilled to welcome the following speakers:

  • Demian Battaglia
  • Andrea Burgalossi
  • Hayriye Cagnan
  • Matteo Carandini
  • Ann Clemens
  • Matteo Di Volo
  • Mark Humphries
  • Liset Menendez de la Prida
  • Marta Moita
  • Martha Nari Havenith
  • David Robbe
  • Marieke Schölvinck
