Lunchtime Sessions


Professional networking using social media , Sunday, April 3, 2016, Beekman

Social media is a powerful tool for neuroscientists. Speakers will discuss ways to use social media (blogging, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) to widen and strengthen your professional network as well as open up new opportunities you may not have been exposed to otherwise (press opportunities, different funding sources, etc). Speakers will also share personal experiences from social media and give tips on what has helped (or not helped) build their own professional network and expand their careers. Discussion time will allow for participants to engage with speakers and others on experiences learned through using social media as a networking tool.

Organizer: Nicholas J.A. Wan (Utah State University)
Speakers: Bradley Voytek, PhD (University of California – San Diego); Richard Prather, PhD (University of Maryland); Sophie Scott, PhD (University College London)


Federal Funding Opportunities at the National Science Foundation, Monday, April 4, 2016, Grand Ballroom East

Dr. Alumit Ishai, Director of the Cognitive Neuroscience Program, will present an overview of current federal funding opportunities for Cognitive Neuroscientists at NSF, the grant application, review and funding processes, and provide hints for successful grant writing along the way. Come learn how to advance your research with federal support!

Speaker: Alumit Ishai, Director, NSF Cognitive Neuroscience Program


NIH Funding: Training and Research Grant Opportunities, Monday, April 4, 2016, Sutton Center

NIH Program Directors representing several Institutes will highlight current training, career development, and research funding opportunities; will touch on funding opportunities, grant application types, review, and funding processes, and provide hints for success. Come learn and ask questions about how NIH support can help you!

Speaker: Kathy Mann Koepke, NICHD/NIH


Publishing Workshop for Early Career Researchers, Monday, April 4, 2016, Grand Ballroom West

This workshop will present a rare opportunity to gain insights into journal publishing from the Editors and Publishers of Elsevier journals (such as Neuropsychologia) on how to write and review a paper, new publishing initiatives and publishing ethics.

Speaker: Toby Charkin, Elsevier
