Submit Proposals Now for Neuroscience 2014 Presentations
It’s not too early to prepare a research presentation for Neuroscience 2014, to be held November 15-19 in Washington, DC. Submissions are open now for symposia, minisymposia, and Social Issues Roundtables.
Each symposium features four speakers who present over a period of 2-½ hours. Well-known, top researchers are typically chosen as symposia presenters. Proposals should fit into one of the general themes found on the application, and are more likely to be chosen if they touch on global issues in neuroscience. Detailed guidelines for written proposals can be found on the Neuroscience 2014 page. The submission period closes January 13.
Junior investigators in particular are encouraged to propose a minisymposium to present exciting research to a broad audience and gain public speaking experience. A minisymposium includes six speakers who give shorter talks over a 2-½ hour session. Written proposals are accepted at SfN.org/sympminiproposals by January 13, 2014.
Each Social Issues Roundtable features three to six presenters, including a chair who is a member of SfN. The Program Committee seeks to select a topic with broad appeal that touches on a timely social issue. Additional guidelines for submitting a Social Issues Roundtable presentation are available on the Neuroscience 2014 page. Submit a proposal by January 13 at SfN.org/sirproposals.
Abstract, poster, and nanosymposia submissions will be accepted between April 17 and May 8, 2014. The nanosymposia offer abstract submitters an innovative way to create and propose slide-based sessions, and may include up to 14 abstracts submitted under the same theme, subtheme, and topic. Just like poster presenters, those seeking nanosymposia sessions can link presentations together with colleagues to form one session.
Additional updates and information about Neuroscience 2014 will be available throughout the year. Also, remember to join or renew your SfN membership to get the best savings and housing rates, and log onto the Washington, DC, community on NeurOnLine to join the discussion about points of interest in the capital city.
