The European Birdsong meeting (EBM) is a scientific event organized for European researchers dedicated to the study of the neuroscience of birdsong. After Paris (France, 2012), Odense (Denmark, 2013), Munich (Germany, 2014), Capo Caccia (Italy, 2015) and Bordeaux (France, 2017), the next edition will come back to Odense from the 12th to the 13rd of April 2018. The objective of the meeting is to bring together senior researchers, PhD students and post-docs giving them the opportunity to present their most recent work. Including plenary sessions and poster presentations, the meeting will be a great place to exchange opinions on birdsong at various levels, from the cellular levels to the most integrated functions. Neuroscience, behavioral ecology, ethology and cognition will be the main general topics of interest.
