Cambridge Neuroscientists invited to submit symposia proposals for the British Association for Cognitive Neuroscience meeting, 2010

Annual meeting of the British Association for Cognitive Neuroscience (BACN).

You are invited to submit proposals for symposia for our 2010 meeting, to be held from 1st to 3rd September 2010 in U.W.E., Bristol’s new conference centre.

The general theme of this year’s meeting is ‘ageing’ – a broad theme which we hope to include a strong focus on ‘developmental psychopathology’. Study of these processes requires convergent methodologies and consequently we encourage you to represent the variety of modern neuroscience methods to address questions such as structural and functional changes throughout life-span and potentially treatment practices and outcomes. We are also open to any alternative suggestions.

We are a relatively young society that is keen to support scientists at the beginning of their career. We therefore provide several bursaries for graduate students and a poster prize for exceptional undergraduate projects. The two students judged as submitting the best posters will be invited to give platform presentations. Bursaries will cover registration and accommodation costs at the BACN annual meeting in Bristol. We also promise a lively social programme which this year includes dinner at the world famous SS Great Britain.

Please submit your symposium proposals by the 15th February 2010 directly to me (carolinec.brown@uwe.ac.uk). Please include a provisional list of speakers and titles. Symposia usually last from 1.5h to 2.5h. Free registration for participants and contributions towards travel expenses are available.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Caroline Brown
Secretary BACN
