Satellite Symposium at the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting
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.

TRAVEL AWARDS: Several travel awards ($500 each) funded by the National Institute of Deafness and Other Communication Disorders will be given to outstanding graduate-student and post-doctoral presenters (talk or poster). Please indicate your interest during the abstract-submission process. Individuals will be asked to submit a CV. Selection will be based on a combination of the presentation and academic accomplishment/promise.
CHANCE TO WIN $50!!! Fill out this SURVEY on TDT-APAN and enter a sweepstakes to win a $50 Amazon gift card. The sweepstakes closes at the end of November.
NOTE ON SELECTION PROCESS FOR ORAL PROGRAM: With the inclusion of the oral Poster Teaser format this year, all abstracts submitted by the August 1, 2013 submission deadline were reviewed by at least four program-committee members (with no conflict of interest). Each reviewer assigned each of their abstracts a priority score for an oral slot and a score reflecting their confidence in their knowledge about the topic. Scores were then averaged by several different methods, and abstracts that fell generally within the top third were then further discussed for inclusion in the final oral program, balancing numerical scores with other factors like topic and animal model diversity, prior oral presentations, etc. If an abstract listed only a preference for a Poster, it was not considered for a Slide Session, but could be included for a Poster Teaser.As in previous years, all submissions made by the deadline were accepted for presentation. Late submissions were accepted based on availability of poster board space.
POSTER PREPARATION: Posters should be prepared according to the SfN rules for formatting posters. See: http://www.sfn.org/annual-meeting/neuroscience-2013/abstracts-and-sessions/presenter-resources/poster-presenters
