Neuroscience 2016: Important Changes to Themes and Topics
SfN looks forward to welcoming you to Neuroscience 2016 in San Diego, As you prepare for the annual meeting and submit abstracts, please remember there is a new Themes and Topics structure.
The annual meeting remains an unmatched venue for sharing your science, and the Program Committee continues to work to facilitate and enhance interactions between scientists in related areas. Following extensive discussion, the Program Committee elected to undertake the most significant reorganization of meeting themes and topics in recent history. One important goal was to ensure disease-related presentations are woven throughout the fabric of the meeting. For example, scientists who study basic developmental neurobiology and neurodevelopmental disorders will have their abstracts under the same theme: Development. A new theme, Motivation and Emotion, will integrate research on mechanisms of motivational behavior with work on mechanisms of drug addiction. The former Theme H is now Theme J: History and Education. Read more about the Program Committee’s goals.
The Program Committee looks forward to an event full of great science in November, and this new approach will ensure the best program possible. Check out the new themes and topics, and be sure to submit your abstract before the May 5th deadline.
