  • More than 600 exhibitors showcasing new tools, technologies, and publishing opportunities
  • Dozens of professional development, advocacy, and networking events
  • Selection of more than 100 satellite events being held in conjunction with the annual meeting

Neuroscience 2014 will feature lectures, symposia, workshops, and events for scientists at all career stages. Sessions and events at the annual meeting are designed to provide attendees with a range of opportunities, including scientific enrichment, career development, and professional networking.

Featured and Special Lecturers: Each year, the SfN Program Committee invites leading scientists to give lectures on hot-button topics in neuroscience. The Presidential Special Lecture series is developed by SfN’s President with the lectures stemming from his or her selected topic of interest. This year’s topic for the Presidential Special Lectures is “Cells of the Brain.”

Symposia and Minisymposia: These panel sessions are focused on timely, relevant research from across the field. Symposia and minisymposia are selected by the Program Committee from proposals submitted by members of SfN. Don’t miss your opportunity to contribute to next year’s annual meeting. Symposium and minisymposium proposal submission opens Saturday, November 15. Members are encouraged to use the meeting as a place to collaborate with colleagues on potential topics.

Curated Itineraries: With the wide variety of topics and research breakthroughs that are covered at the annual meeting, some attendees may wish to narrow down their meeting experience to their particular area of interest. Curated Itineraries are specific topical tracks chosen by the SfN Program Committee. Each track encompasses relevant posters and nanosymposia, as well as lectures, symposia, and minisymposia. Past curated itinerary tracks include Plasticity, Epilepsy, and Advanced Methods: Focus on the Cortex. More information will be available on Curated Itineraries this summer.

With a robust scientific program and over 700 poster and nanosymposium sessions, all attendees of the annual meeting will be able to make the most of their meeting experience.
