ASSC16 Abstract Submission

---------------CALL FOR TALKS AND POSTERS SUBMISSIONS--------------

   ABSTRACT SUBMISSION FOR ASSC16 IS NOW CLOSED   

 

The annual ASSC conferences are intended to promote interdisciplinary dialogue in the scientific study of consciousness. ASSC members as well as non-members are encouraged to submit contributions that address current empirical and theoretical issues in the study of consciousness, from the perspectives of neuroscience, psychology, medicine, philosophy, computer science, and cognitive ethology. ASSC16 will provide an excellent opportunity for the presentation of new empirical findings or novel theoretical perspectives in an atmosphere that will promote discussion and debate. The program committee invites submissions for Talk and Poster presentations on any topic relevant to the scientific study of consciousness. Neuroscientific, anthropological, clinical, evolutionary, psychological, philosophical, or computational perspectives are all welcome. Any person may present only one submission, but may be co-author on more than one. Submissions for both posters and talks will be accepted (please specify preference). We would, however, like you to be aware that there are a limited number of both talk sessions and poster space available. Talks and posters will be selected in preference of the presentations of greatest quality and relevance to the aims of the ASSC. All presenters must register for the conference (registration and payment can be made after acceptance notification has been received).  Please note that author names will be stripped from submissions prior to review by the committee to encourage fair evaluation (committee chairs will however have access to this information).

The maximum time allocated to each talk is 20 minutes (including discussion). Speakers should aim to complete their talk in 15 minutes to allow 5 minutes for questions. Please note that we anticipate that we will be unable to accept all abstract submissions due to the limited time and space available. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by this restriction.

TRAVEL AWARD

ASSC16 is seeking funds for travel awards for young scholars (Ph.D. student and postdoc within 3 years of graduation). Please check "yes" if you would like to be considered for an award, should they become available).  We expect to have several travel awards available (to be confirmed).

 

EXPRESS REVIEW

If you need an express review for acceptance or rejection of the abstract for your visa applications, select "YES"  where it asks "Do you need an express review for acceptance or rejection of your abstract for a visa application."  

NOTE: Express reviews will be conducted as quickly as possible, but as they will require imediate attention of the reviewing committee we ask that these requests are only limited to those that need written confirmation of acceptance to the conference in order to apply for your travel visa to the UK. All decisions regarding talk or poster allocations will not be made until the abstract submission period has closed.

 

STUDENT POSTER COMPETITION

For each of the poster sessions, there will be one prize awarded for neuroscience and one prize awarded for philosophy (4 prizes in total). Posters will be categorized by the judges. The four winners will be presented an award on stage just before the final keynote of the conference. The winning posters will also be featured on the ASSC website. The competition is only open to students (post-docs are not elegible).

If you would like to be considered for the student poster competition then select "YES"  where it asks "Would you like to be considered for the student poster prize"

Note: Prizes will not be awarded for student talk presentations. So if you select "talk or poster" for your presentaiton and you are awarded a talk then you will not be considered for the poster prize.
