June 11 - 14, 2018
at OIST Graduate University
There has been rapid progress in our understanding of olfaction. The workshop will feature latest advancements, with a particular focus on the nature of olfactory stimulus, its representation in the brain and how it is used to guide animal behaviour. A variety of approaches will be presented, including computational, engineering and biological experiments on insects, fish and mammals.
