Augnition Labs will be at the 2023 International Conference on Learning and Memory.

April 1, 2023 – Augnition Labs announced today that the company will be one of the featured sponsors at the 2023 International Conference on Learning and Memory (LEARNMEM™2023), which will be held on April 26-30 against the scenic backdrop of the surf and sand of Huntington Beach, California.

The University of California Irvine Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory (CNLM) held the 1st International Conference on Learning and Memory (LEARNMEM™2018) in April 2018. It broadly covered numerous facets of the neuroscience of learning and memory with an emphasis on integrating across animal and human studies as well as across fundamental and translational science. It was held in celebration of the 35thAnniversary of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory (CNLM) at UC Irvine. This 5-day conference featured plenary talks by distinguished neuroscientists, diverse and balanced symposia, short talks, and poster sessions. It also included innovative features such as a panel on open science and open publishing, in addition to a community engagement session in which young children critiqued work of renowned scientists in a live review (Frontiers for Young Minds). The conference was attended by more than 1,000 scientists from 35 different countries.

This month, the 2nd LEARNMEM conference will be held in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the CNLM, which was established in 1983 by the UC Regents with James L. McGaugh as its Founding Director. Contributions from more than 700 scientists are featured across five days, including talks, posters, exhibits, workshops, and professional networking activities. Once again over 1,000 attendees from more than 30 countries around the world are registered to attend the conference in person.

Augnition Labs is proud to support such an interdisciplinary effort and company representatives are looking forward to connecting with learning and memory researchers in person during the conference.
