2012 International Congress of Neuroethology
Call for Symposium Proposals

The 10th International Congress of Neuroethology will be held in College Park, Maryland, USA, August 5-10, 2012. The Program Committee is soliciting proposals for symposia. All symposia will include 4 speakers and be two hours in length (20 min per talk, 5 min chair’s introduction to the symposium, 5 min question period following each talk). We anticipate having between 16-18 symposia.

Proposals are due May 1, 2011. They will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of the criteria listed below, with final decisions made by June 1, 2011.

The basic criteria for symposia include:

1.  The topic should be novel, timely, and interesting to a broad range of neuroethologists.
2.  The topic and the list of proposed speakers must not duplicate or substantially overlap symposia presented at the Salamanca (2010) meeting. The program committee will give priority to those proposals that also do not overlap in either content or speakers symposia presented at earlier congresses.
3.  Proposed speakers should represent a good balance between established and new investigators, have an equitable representation of women and members of under-represented groups, and reflect the international diversity of ISN.

Please include the following information in your proposal:

1.      your name and affiliation
2.      the title and goal of your proposed symposium
3.      the basic theme or area the symposium represents
4.      a list of the proposed speakers and a brief (1 sentence) statement of how their work fits into the topic of the symposium
5.     a short (2-3 sentence) statement of how the symposium meets the criteria listed above
6.     a statement as to which of the proposed speakers has agreed to participate

Please be aware that the Program Committee may make suggestions for substituting speakers to ensure the kinds of diversity and issues of non-duplication suggested above. Symposia chairs should not make any commitments to proposed speakers regarding financial support.

Please email your proposal by May 1, 2011 to both Program Committee Co-chairs at   and m("","Andrea_Simmons");">.

Thank you in advance for your involvement and suggestions for ICN 2012. We look forward to hearing from you. Please do not hesitate to contact either of us if you have any questions.
