The deadline for the Call for Symposia has been extended to Friday, 20 April 2018. You can submit your proposal via the online submission management system Currinda. Click here to begin the submission process.

The annual meeting of the Australasian Neuroscience Society will take place at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 3 – 6 December 2018.

To submit your proposal, you will first need to create a profile (if you do not have one already) in Currinda. This is a simple step and will take less than two minutes to set up.

Please carefully read the Policy and Guidelines prior to submission. 

Submissions are encouraged from across all research areas represented within the membership.  The research themes are as follows:

  • Development and regeneration
  • Excitability and synaptic transmission
  • Sensory systems
  • Motor systems
  • Autonomic/neuroendocrine systems
  • Limbic and other systems
  • Glia
  • Cognition/learning and behaviour
  • Clinical disorders and injury of the nervous system
  • New techniques in neuroscience
  • History of neuroscience and neuroscience teaching
  • Neuroengineering
  • other

Consideration will also be given to symposia that include speakers from broader areas of research aligned with the field of neuroscience.

All Australasian proposers, chairs and speakers must be current members of ANS. It is required that only the proposer is an ANS member at the time of submission. All participants of successful symposia must be members prior to the commencement of the conference.

Amendments can be made to your submission up until the deadline. Simply log into your Currinda profile, select the proposal you wish to amend and navigate through the tabs at the top of the page to the sections you wish to change.
