In 2017 the CPS is proud to co-sponsor
CAPnet-CPS CAN-ACN SATELLITE SYMPOSIUM
“Perception, Action and their interaction: Data, Models and Dysfunction”
Saturday May 27th, 2017, 8 am to 4.30 pm
Venue: Canadian Association for Neuroscience (CAN-ACN) Conference, Hotel Bonaventure, Montreal, QC
This one-day satellite symposium focuses on perception and sensorimotor processes underlying the control of vision and movement in healthy and clinical populations.
Jointly organized by the Canadian Action and Perception Network (CAPnet), a neuroscience research consortium that focuses on sensation, perception, and movement control, and by the Canadian Physiological Society (CPS) we invite abstract submission.
The satellite is open to everyone and will highlight presentations from neuroscientists across
Canada in talk sessions, a poster session, and a keynote lecture given by the recipient of
Program committee: Aarlenne Khan (U. Montreal., chair), Steven Prime (U. Saskatchewan), Brian Corneil (U. Western Ontario), Paul Gribble (U. Western Ontario), Lauren Sergio (York U.), Niko Troje (Queen’s U.), Erik Cook (McGill), Andrea Green (U. Montreal)
HOW TO SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT
A& P Satellite abstracts can be the same as, or different from, those submitted to the main CAN?ACN meeting. The number of oral presentations is limited (approx. 20) and will be selected by the program committee based on the excellence and novelty of the abstract, fit of the topic with the satellite theme, and to maximize the number of labs presenting. A preference for poster or talk should be included in the abstract submission. Talks will be 15 minutes long (including questions). Two trainee awards, one for best talk and one for best poster, will be presented at the end of the satellite.
Abstracts should be written in CAN?ACN format (~250 words) and submitted online
Closing date for abstract submission: March 31st, 2017
We will inform applicants of acceptance and presentation type (talk or poster) and post the final schedule around mid April 2017.
