ANS 2016 Hobart

Dates: 4-7th December 2016.

ANS Symposia deadline extended until Friday Feb 19th 2016 for 2016 Hobart meeting.

ANS announces that Council have extended the symposia proposal submission deadline from Friday Feb 5th to Friday, Feb 19th. Symposia will normally have 4 speakers and be arranged in themes of interest to the broad membership of the society. Funding will be available to contribute to the costs of ONE invited overseas speaker per symposium. Overseas speakers (not from Australia or New Zealand) can receive free registration, social tickets and up to $2500 to cover costs of travel and accommodation. All financial support will be paid directly to the overseas speaker at the Annual Meeting. No Society funding will be available to support costs of Australian or New Zealand speakers, chairs or organisers. The Society wishes to emphasise it is not necessary for a symposium to have an overseas speaker, as high quality proposals with all speakers coming from Australia and New Zealand are most welcome. Although proposals will be considered primarily on scientific merit, Council will take into consideration the geographic and gender diversity of the proposed speakers. In general, speakers in each symposium should come from different institutions. Symposium proposals that include early career researchers as the proposer, chair or speaker are encouraged. Symposium proposers need to ensure that all Australasian speakers are current members of ANS, although exceptions can be made with appropriate scientific justifications responsibility to ensure that all speakers register and submit their abstracts by the deadline (Friday August 5th).

All symposium proposals should be submitted by email to the Society Editor, Prof. Steven Petrou (spetrou@unimelb.edu.au) no later than Friday Feb 19th 2016.

Further details about the application form can be found here.

Kind regards
