Axonal and dendritic arbors play fundamental roles in network connectivity and neural computation. Recent developments in light microscopy and digital technology have contributed to the widespread application of three-dimensional reconstructions of neuronal morphology in all domains of neuroscience, with applications ranging from quantitative analysis to computational modeling. Yet the field is continuously evolving, and new advances are rapidly changing the amount and type of data that can be collected, opening unexplored scientific opportunities.

This conference will celebrate the unprecedented availability of neuronal reconstructions, highlighting major discoveries that resulted from these data and new directions of research. The foremost worldwide researchers in data collection and analysis will discuss the remaining challenges and potential solutions with leading developers of powerful imaging and reconstruction tools, both commercial and custom-made.

The conference begins Saturday 1 June, 2013 at 6:00pm and ends Monday 3 June, 2013 at 2:00pm.
