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.
