2018 Call for Symposia and Keynote Speakers
April 13, 2017

The 22nd Annual Meeting of the Society for Behavioral Neuroendocrinology will be held in conjunction with the International Congress of Neuroendocrinology (ICN) in Toronto, Canada, from July 15 - 18, 2018. Meeting details will be posted on the SBN website.


CALL FOR PROPOSALS - SBN 2018

The 22nd Annual Meeting of the Society for Behavioral Neuroendocrinology will be held in conjunction with the International Congress of Neuroendocrinology (ICN) in Toronto, Canada, from July 15 - 18, 2018. Meeting details will be posted on the SBN website.

We now seek proposals for symposia and keynote speakers. Please email your proposals or questions to the SBN Program Committee chair, Kim Huhman (khuhman@gsu.edu). To receive full consideration, proposals must be received by Friday, May 26, 2017. This deadline is earlier than usual because the meeting is coordinated with the ICN and they are on an earlier timeline.

Successful proposals will be expected to contain good diversity in one or more of the following ways: junior/senior faculty speakers, animal taxa, ethnicity, gender, and methodological approaches. Although we welcome proposals that include non-member speakers (not a member for the last two years), the number of non-member speakers will be limited.

To see scientific programs from recent meetings and avoid overlap, please see the Past SBN Annual Meeting Books page on the SBN website. ICN already has organized symposia around themes that should be highly relevant to SBNers (i.e., reproduction - hypothalamic, circuits, cell physiology, reproductive disorders; metabolism - gut/brain, hypothalamic, reward, neuroendocrine; stress - epigenetics, circuits, plasticity, prenatal stress; and timing - mechanisms, metabolic clocks, seasonal, clocks and aging).

Additional information appears below.

SYMPOSIA

A suggested format is a brief introduction or overview by one person (perhaps the symposium organizer), followed by three or four full-length talks. Each proposal should include a title, a brief rationale for why the topic is timely and likely to be of great interest to the SBN membership, and the names, titles and affiliations of four or five suggested speakers along with their areas of expertise. Please do not invite proposed speakers until the symposium is accepted. Please note that the Program Committee may recommend combining proposals and/or substituting speakers.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Please propose outstanding scientists who are also excellent speakers, and include a short description in support of your nominee(s). As with symposia, we encourage keynote speaker nominations from the SBN community.

Thank you in advance for your interest in the 2018 SBN Annual Meeting!

SBN PROGRAM COMMITTEE

Kim Huhman (Chair), Christine Wagner, Kevin Bath, Ruth Wood, John Meitzen, Simone Meddle, Thierry Charlier, Alfonso Abizaid, Frances Champagne, Hans Hoffmann, Larry Young, Liisa Galea, Tony Nunez.
