The organizing committee of the XVII Meeting of the Portuguese Society for Neuroscience is inviting the SPN community to submit proposals for scientific symposia. These sessions are organized around a specific topic that should have broad enough appeal to generate large audiences at the meeting. Any timely and coherent subject of interest to the Neuroscience community will be considered.
Each symposium will be 90 min long, and should include 3 talks from invited speakers (20 min each) in addition to two presentations selected from submitted abstracts (15 min each). Symposium organizers should be SPN members. Registration will be waived for the organizer and for invited speakers of the symposia. SPN will not support travel and accommodation expenses.
Proposals should be submitted until June 30 (2020) at https://forms.gle/3W8QHUkCn26jv4Gz7. Selection of symposia will be made before September 30 (2020).
• Symposium title
• Organizer (Name, institution, email). This person is the point of contact for the session and responsible for communicating with speakers.
• 2 Invited Speakers (Name, institution, email, and tentative talk title for each). Only speakers who have been contacted and have committed to the session should be listed.
• Symposium description (< 400 words): Should focus on the theme of the session and include background information, goals, objectives, importance, and interest to the SPN members.
