To be held in conjunction with the 2007 SOCIETY FOR NEUROSCIENCE
CONFERENCE, November 3-7, 200 at the San Diego Convention Center, San
Diego, CA.
* CONFERENCE DATES: Thu-Fri November 1 & 2, 2007

The inaugural CCNC 2005 meeting held prior to Society for Neuroscience
(SfN) in Washington, DC was a great success, with approximately 250
attendees, 60 presented posters, and strongly positive reviews. For
2006, we went to Houston for the much smaller Psychonomics meeting and
still had over 100 attendees and almost 50 posters. In future years,
we still plan to continue to rotate among different neuroscience and
psychology meetings.
Abstracts are to be submitted online via the website:
Notice will be given by early June when the online submission form
becomes operational.
As in past years, there will be two categories of submissions:
-Poster only
-Poster, plus short talk (15 min) to highlight the poster
Abstracts should be limited to 250 words. Women and underrepresented
minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Reviewing for posters
will be inclusive and only to ensure appropriateness to the
meeting. Short talks will be selected on the basis of research
quality, relevance to conference theme, and expected accessibility in
a talk format. Abstracts not selected for short talks will still be
accepted as posters as long as they meet appropriateness criteria.
