7th IBRO World Congress of Neuroscience Calls for Proposals for Symposia, Plenary Lectures and Satellite Meetings

Melbourne, 12-17 July, 2007

Call for Proposals for Symposia, Plenary Lectures and Satellite Meetings

The Australian Neuroscience Society is hosting the 7th IBRO World Congress of Neuroscience in 2007. The President of the Congress is George Paxinos and the Secretary-General Frederick Mendelsohn. The Local Organizing Committee (Secretary Andrew Lawrence; email eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%61%2e%6c%61%77%72%65%6e%63%65%40%68%66%69%2e%75%6e%69%6d%65%6c%62%2e%65%64%75%2e%61%75%22%3e%61%2e%6c%61%77%72%65%6e%63%65%40%68%66%69%2e%75%6e%69%6d%65%6c%62%2e%65%64%75%2e%61%75%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b'))) can be contacted for details about the meeting.

An International Programming Committee has been set up to consider proposals from neuroscientists world-wide for symposia, plenary lectures and satellite meetings as a basis for a very exciting Program at the Congress. Proposals on any topic in neuroscience can be submitted. IBRO is keen to ensure that the Congress will focus on new areas of interest that extend beyond the topics covered in most past international neuroscience meetings. Plenary lecturers will be selected preferentially for their position at the forefront of new developments rather than for their accumulated wisdom in traditional areas of research. Symposia and satellite meetings that are planned around novel topics and future directions or on recent technical developments will be viewed most favourably, particularly when they present a multi-disciplinary approach to the subject. Inclusion of speakers representing excellence from different countries will be viewed favourably.

Proposals for symposia and plenary lectures in the format requested will be accepted until a closing date of 30 June 2005. Proposals for satellite meetings have a deadline of 1 October 2005. Submissions should preferably be sent to eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%65%2e%6d%63%6c%61%63%68%6c%61%6e%40%75%6e%73%77%2e%65%64%75%2e%61%75%22%3e%65%2e%6d%63%6c%61%63%68%6c%61%6e%40%75%6e%73%77%2e%65%64%75%2e%61%75%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')) or by fax to 61-2 9399-1034. The International Programming Committee will review the proposals and select the ones that will present a most exciting international program covering a wide range of neuroscience. The Committee may subsequently invite proposals in order to ensure an attractive and complementary diversity of subject matter and stimulating speakers. In terms of speaker support, the following will apply. Plenary speakers will receive gratis registration plus a support package to contribute towards travel costs. Symposium speakers will receive gratis registration. Satellite meetings are expected to be self-funded, and are encouraged to be held in the broad Australasian geographic region.

Abstracts for posters will be called for in October 2006 with a closing date at the end of December 2006. Submissions in all areas of neuroscience would be welcome. Material that is aimed at understanding better how the brain and nervous system work in health and disease or that brings the results of cellular/molecular and animal studies closer to human brain function is encouraged. Selected posters will be presented at the end of each session in a discussion group under a facilitative chairperson.
