Learning and Memory 2018
In celebration of the 35th anniversary of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory at UC Irvine, we will be hosting a major international conference on the neurobiology of learning and memory. The program features 16 plenary talks, 35 symposia and over 350 short talks and posters.
The Conference dates are April 18-22, 2018
The Conference venue will be The Waterfront Beach Resort, A Hilton Hotel in Huntington Beach, CA.
Registration and Housing
We are expecting 800-1000 attendees. Early registration is strongly advised. Traveling attendees are advised to book at the conference hotel. The hotel has reserved a block of rooms for conference attendees at a special rate. Click here for more information about travel/lodging.
Thanks to sponsorship from the BrightFocus Foundation, SciTechEdit International and the National Institutes of Health we are able to offer travel fellowships to support researchers traveling to and participating in the 2018 International Conference on Learning and Memory.

Note: Professor Howard Eichenbaum, memory research pioneer, dear friend, and long-time colleague passed away on July 21, 2017 following spinal surgery. We are profoundly saddened by this tremendous loss and wish his family, friends and colleagues take comfort in knowing he was well loved, appreciated and deeply respected within the scientific community. Professor Eichenbaum was one of the first to confirm his participation as a plenary speaker in the conference. We are grateful to Dr. Neal Cohen, longtime friend and collaborator of Dr. Eichenbaum, who has graciously agreed to join and speak in his honor.

Edvard Moser is a professor of neuroscience and director of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience in Trondheim. He is interested in how spatial location and spatial memory are computed in the brain. His work, conducted with May-Britt Moser as a long-term collaborator, includes the discovery of grid cells in the entorhinal cortex, which provides the first clues to a neural mechanism for the metric of spatial mapping.
He shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2014 with May-Britt Moser and John O'Keefe for their work identifying the cells that make up the brain's positioning system.

Many options to support the conference are still available.
Thank you to our partners!
The 2018 International Conference on Learning and Memory would not be possible without financial and logistical support from the University of California Irvine including the Schools of Biological Sciences, Medicine, Social Sciences, Social Ecology, and Nursing, the Office of Research and the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior. Generous support also comes from Dr. Renee Harwick, a long-time supporter of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory. We are delighted to have the support of our nonprofit and commercial partners below. In particular, we thank Frontiers in Neuroscience for being our partner and headlining sponsor.
