SNACC is proud to sponsor the 2nd Annual Neuroscience Symposium!
This year’s symposium entitled “Effects of Anesthetics on the Brain” will be held on Sunday, May 19 from 2:00 – 8:00 PM at the Montreal Westin, 270 St. Antoine West, Montreal, Canada, coinciding with the 2019 IARS Annual Meeting.
The symposium will allow networking with fellow neuroscience researchers and foster informal discussions about new/novel findings on the topic area. Attendees will have the opportunity to briefly present their findings for discussion by the group. Clinical, translational, and basic science researchers at all career stages are encouraged to attend and present their work. To allow optimal networking and constructive discussion, the number of attendees will be limited to 50. The symposium is not intended to be an ordinary meeting. Instead, it is intended to be a cutting edge, work-in-progress symposium featuring 10-12 presenters. This is an invited conference of people with active investigation in the field. The one requirement is that everyone actively participate – both presenters and participants as this is not a platform presentation and audience listening format. It is intended that the experience be beneficial and participatory for both presenter and participant.
If you are interested in attending, please submit an NIH-style biosketch. If you are interested in presenting, please submit an abstract (300 words) of the presentation in addition to the biosketch. Click the Survey Monkey link here to get started.
The deadline for the biosketch and abstract submission is Friday, March 1. These items will be reviewed and the presenters and participants chosen by a committee. Those selected to attend the symposium will receive a separate invitation with a link to the registration and the Montreal Westin hotel site. The nominal $25 registration fee for attendees includes dinner.
Meeting Agenda – Sunday, May 19
2:00-6:30 PM Presentations and discussion; 6:30-8:00 pm dinner and informal discussion.
Thank you for your interest in the Neuroscience Symposium!
