Abstract submission deadline: 18th November 2023.

Make sure to book your hotel in advance!

Our very successful series of lectures on sodium channels in the World Wide Sodium Channel Seminar Series created a sodium channel community with lively discussions and interactions. To continue the highly fruitful exchange of ideas and new data, there will be the in-person World Wide Sodium Channel Conference from January 31st to February 2nd 2024 in Grindelwald, Switzerland.

We would like to give every participant a similar amount of time for presenting: in topic focused sessions several concise talks of equal length will be presented  – independent if someone is senior or junior. With this format we hope to give room for discussing as much as possible of the best of world wide ongoing Nav science.

We look forward to welcoming you in Grindelwald!

The Organizing Team: Hugues Abriel, Oksana Iamshanova, Jean-Sébastien Rougier, Ana Stojiljkovic (Bern, Switzerland); Angelika Lampert and Jannis Körner (Aachen, Germany)


We encourage abstract submissions. The abstract (including background, aim, methods, results, and conclusions), should not exceed 300 words.

Due to time and space limitations, an evaluation of the submitted abstracts will be performed. The ones selected for an oral presentation will be scheduled as a concise talk. Other abstracts may be selected for an on-site/online poster presentation.


Junior Scientists are asked to provide their CV and a letter from their supervisor stating that they did not receive a PhD yet in one merged PDF file.
