Advances and Perspectives in Auditory Neuroscience (APAN)
Sponsored by TDT and NIDCD-NIH

Satellite Symposium at the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting


Dear APAN Attendees, 

We have been told that the Veteran's Day Parade on November 11th in San Diego may make the marina area where APAN is being held a bit busy at lunchtime. For this reason, we can pre-order a limited number of box lunches from the hotel and make them available at a discount to our APAN members. These lunches would contain a sandwich (Smoked Turkey, Smoked Ham, OR Grilled Vegetables), fruit and a cookie and would be available for $10 each. However, if you'd like a boxed lunch, they must be pre-ordered.

If you would like to pre-order a boxed lunch for $10 then please send an email to with your choice of sandwich (Turkey, Ham, Veggie) and Your LASTNAME in the subject line. Example:  "Veggie - Petkov" in subject line. If you want to pay ahead of time with PayPal, send your payment to Otherwise, at the conference, we will only accept cash. In the body of the email please indicate if you will be paying cash on the day of the conference of if you will be using PayPal. 

Box lunch pre-order emails must be received by Friday November 4th and there will be a limited amount so pre-order early.

Here are some restaurant recommendations nearby and some in Little Italy  and their location near the Wyndham San Diego Bayside Hotel.





This annual symposium is to facilitate the growth of auditory neurophysiology research in awake and behaving preparations, provide an opportunity for researchers to discuss issues of common interest, and share their latest findings. Those interested in giving an oral or poster presentation must submit an abstract (~250 words). We encourage the submission of abstracts by newly established investigators, postdocs and graduate students.

All poster presentations are accepted to this satellite meeting. Our Programming Committee will select those presentations that will be presented as short talks.
