Planning is well underway for the 42nd ANS Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM), and we are thrilled to welcome you to Perth on December 2nd to 4th. Hosted in Western Australia for the first time in more than 20 years, the theme for this year’s meeting is ‘Forging the Nexus, Crossing the Synapse’. This reflects our desire to connect researchers across the country at the nexus of neuroscience, neurotechnology and forward thinking, and is also a nod to uniting our physical distance across the Nullarbor.

The Local Organising Committee - chaired jointly by Dr. Sarah Hellewell, Dr. Chidozie Anyaegbu, Dr. Stuart Hodgetts and A/Prof. Stephanie Rainey-Smith - are planning an exciting program which includes a confirmed international plenary lecture from acclaimed Professor Tracy Bale from the University of Colorado as well as symposia, oral and poster presentations spanning the breadth of neuroscience themes to showcase the exceptional work of Australasian researchers across career stages.

The ASM will be held at the newly refurbished Pan Pacific Hotel in the Perth CBD, centrally located to the picturesque Swan River, hotels, and the best of Perth’s dining and entertainment. If you have not previously visited Western Australia or it has been some time since you ventured out West, you may be pleased to discover Perth as a cosmopolitan city with unique biodiversity, world-leading beaches and unforgettable sunsets.

Western Australia’s vibrant and engaged neuroscience community are excited to see you in December.
