After the unfortunate cancellation of the EMHFC 2020 in Bochum due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is now time to meet, to discuss, to network and to make good for all the things which could not take place last year. We are looking forward to lively discussions during 2 excellent keynote talks, 6 different sessions with 25 talks, 2 poster sessions with a total of 67 outstanding posters, 5 poster prizes, 3 panel discussions  various coffee breaks and the opportunity to meet in the Networking Lounge, a challenging quiz and the new meet-the-expert session over the course of 3 very inspiring days with a total of 224 participants.

This is the first digital version of the EMHFC bridging different research lines not only across Europe but world-wide (From Europe’s Labs to the Virtual World), all having the fear conditioning paradigm at the core, thus, we all speak the same language in the end! Every now and then, there will certainly be some minor technical problems, but hey, that’s life, we will try to solve them. We will partner with a professional digital conference platform (elevent.ly) taking care of technical problems and allowing us to have fun together!

Please have a look at the final program!
