An invitation to ANS 2012

From Lizzie Coulson, Chair, Organising Committee

[an error occurred while processing this directive]The 32nd Annual Meeting of the Australian Neuroscience Society will be held at the recently renovated Jupiters Hotel on the Gold Coast. Jupiters Hotel has a dedicated conference centre and also includes over 600 five star accommodation rooms, so you only need to take a lift to get to the sessions. It is the perfect venue for one of our meetings – with the beach only minutes away – and the lure of the sun, surf and theme parks, set against a rainforest hinterland backdrop. The venue also has the wonderful family ambience of the Gold Coast with baby-sitting for children aged 6 weeks to 16 years available for both day and night.

We anticipate this being one of the largest ANS meetings ever, with the scientific program commencing on Monday with the first of our four plenary speakers, who are Feng Zhang (McGovern Institute for Brain Research), Janusz Lipski (Auckland), Marcus Stoodley (Macquarie) and Heather Young (Melbourne). We also have thirteen symposia with most sessions containing an international speaker. The oral communications and posters will be scheduled over the 3 full days of the conference and will reflect the cutting edge of neuroscience in Australia and overseas.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]The Social program will include a Welcome Reception on the Sunday night, Cocktail Party on the Monday night, followed by a combined Student Mixer and Post-Doctoral Social, which is a popular event at ANS events. On Tuesday night the Conference Dinner will be held around the lush pool/barbecue area of Jupiters Hotel. This will be a fun evening with great food, wine and an exotic setting – not to be missed! The meeting will conclude with Farewell Drinks on the Wednesday afternoon, which will be combined with the presentation of poster and oral prizes.

We look forward to welcoming you to the glorious Gold Coast.
