This year I had opportunity to attend two amazing international conferences one on Olfaction which was held at ICTP, Italy in July and the other one was International conference for chemical ecology held at Kyoto, Japan in August. The first one was a very specialized meeting on olfaction and focused on olfactory coding, perception, olfactory search algorithms and neuroscience of olfaction.
The International conference of Chemical ecology was relatively a huge conference where scientists from various fields of chemical ecology came together and presented their work. It had topics ranging from plant volatile, herbivore defenses , microbial chemical ecology, insect olfaction to evolution of olfactory receptors.
I presented my work in form of posters in both conferences and received great reviews for my work.
