Now organizing the scientific program, which is about 3/4-filled. The preliminary program has been posted. If you want to organize a session or give a Data Blitz talk, please read below and send us your information via the "Contact Us" page. Do not delay as the program fills quickly. Also, as you organize your session, please think about whether you and your speakers would like to publish the session as part of an article collection in Frontiers in Neuroscience (see below).
The Spring Hippocampal Research Conference is designed to bring together students, fellows, researchers, and clinicians interested in all aspects of normal hippocampal formation structure and function in learning, memory, and spatial function, as well as its dysfunction in neurological and psychiatric disorders. In addition to presenting and hearing the latest data in the formal sessions and data blitzes, participants benefit from informal interactions throughout the five days of the meeting, which will be held every two years in a location that facilitates friendly interactions and future collaborations.
You are invited! This is an entirely open and democratic meeting. As the conference approaches, please contact colleagues and let us know if you plan to organize a session, as the program will fill quickly.
Also, please note that the Data Blitzes work very well, and are for everyone, not just junior investigators. Anyone can attend and present data in these well-attended, fast-paced sessions.
For the formal sessions, please keep in mind the following organizational details when inviting colleagues:
Four speakers in a one hour session (10 minutes for each speaker in a maximum of 8 slides, plus 5 minutes for questions); 3-6 speakers is fine; you can chair the session without speaking if you prefer;
Speakers present data in only one session, as an issue of fairness;
All participants pay the registration fee and the costs of attending; this is an unsponsored, informal meeting. Pre-doctoral students will be subsidized with a reduced registration fee;
This is an open, informal, and friendly meeting with few rules. The primary goals are to: 1) stay strictly on time, and; 2) have the highest-quality sessions.
For the Data Blitz presentations: 5 minutes for each speaker in a maximum of 4 slides, plus 2 minutes for questions.
Your session as a Frontiers Research Topic?
The Spring Hippocampal Research Conference is again associated with Frontiers in Neuroscience. As you organize your session, please think about whether you and your speakers would like to publish the session as part of an article collection. If you do, please contact Jochen Meier (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the Journal development manager, Stephanie Maret (Stephanie.email@example.com).
