Share your science! Symposia submissions are now open for the hybrid 10th Annual BRAIN Initiative Conference scheduled for June 16-18, 2024, in Bethesda, MD. Be a part of discussions exploring the exciting scientific developments, new directions, and collaborations that have grown out of a decade of BRAIN.  

We are excited to announce the opening of symposia submissions for the 10th Annual BRAIN Initiative Conference, previously known as the BRAIN Initiative Meeting. Submissions will be accepted through Monday, November 20, 2023.

Successful submissions will have an overarching theme, present new insights or findings that contribute to the existing body of neuroscience knowledge, and are encouraged to foster interdisciplinary collaborations or bridge multiple areas of research. Symposia formats can include presentations, panel Q&A, or other formats. We particularly welcome workshops that encourage active participation, involvement, and interaction from the audience.

If you want to submit a topic, please download and save the Submission Form(pdf, 1119 KB) to your device before completing it, and visit the Symposia Guidelines(pdf, 190 KB) for information on the format, topic, and submission process.  

Complete proposal submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by the Program Committee based on the specified criteria. Symposia selections will be announced in early January 2024. 

Share this opportunity with your networks! We are committed to developing a conference agenda built from diverse multidisciplinary neuroscience perspectives.
