Sponsorship and Exhibition 2020

Sponsorship opportunities are now available click here for prospectus! 

The ANS Annual Scientific Meeting is one of the largest annual biomedical conferences held in the Australasian region. This year's event will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre in Perth on 8 - 11 December 2020 and is expected to be attended by 700+ delegates. 

2020 is typically associated with hindsight, and whilst this will be a great opportunity to reflect on the past 40 years, the theme of the ASM highlights Perth as a progressive, forward-thinking centre for Australasian neuroscience. Hence Perth 2020: a Forward Vision.

As we celebrate and reflect on 40 years of ANS, the future of neuroscience has never been more exciting. Our local organising committee chaired jointly by Associate Professor Stuart Hodgetts, Dr Ann-Maree Vallence and Associate Professor Julian Heng, are working together to ensure that Perth 2020 has a stimulating scientific program, including Nobel Laureate Professor Edvard Moser to give a new Presidential Lecture, as well as international and national plenaries, symposia, and satellite meetings. In addition, we are working on an exciting social and celebratory program to mark this special occasion.

We look forward to seeing you in Perth in December 2020!

The 2020 organising committee

Neuroscience Teaching Workshop

Do you teach neuroscience at a tertiary level, either as an academic or in a training position such as a casual tutor? Do you wonder how to engage with your students and maximise their success? Or how to support students struggling with their neuroscience course?
Then come along to the Neuroscience Teaching Workshop during the 2019 ANS meeting to meet other neuroscience teaching academics and staff and discuss effective ways to teach our discipline.
This workshop will follow a discursive approach to consider teaching undergraduate neuroscience courses in the Australian and New Zealand context. We invite neuroscience teachers to submit topics for discussion in the workshop to the workshop convenors on the email addresses below, or when registering for the workshop. Examples of topics that could be covered in the workshop include, but are not restricted to:

  • Using online technology to support neuroscience teaching – what works, what doesn’t.
  • Teaching challenges and how to manage these
  • How to assess student knowledge in an era of burgeoning class sizes
  • What is the place for wet anatomy classes?
  • Views of recently graduated students about their experiences
  • Do we need to do more to help ECRs to transition into teaching positions?

We plan to establish an Australasian neuroscience teaching network to i) support communication between teaching academics, ii) facilitate the production of effective teaching content that can be shared across institutions, and iii) to provide a framework for conducting and disseminating neuroscience teaching research.

The workshop will be held on Tuesday 3 December 2019 from 5.30-7.30pm in the Riverbank 7 Room at the Adelaide Convention Centre and will be free for registered workshop attendees (even if you are not attending the ANS meeting).

To complete your free registration click here. If you are ONLY wanting to attend this workshop and not the conference, make sure you select the registration type ‘Neuroscience Teaching Workshop ONLY.’
