Call for Symposia, Papers and Posters

Dear colleagues!
26-28 November 2013, in Moscow a conference "Applied Neuroscience and Social Well-being" will be organized jointly by Sholokhov Moscow State University for the Humanities (SMSUH) and Institute of Higher Nervous Activity and Neurophysiology (IHNA). The conference is supported by Society of Applied Neuroscience.

The  conference aims  to cover recent advances of applied neuroscience in neuropsychiatry and neurodevelopmental disorders, personality research, lie detection, neuromarketing, usability, ergonomics etc. The working languages are English (main language) and Russian.

It is a very short notice indeed and we are setting very late deadlines for oral papers (October 25) and posters (November 5). There will be an option to register onsite but to make sure you receive a complete conference pack and the thesis book you have to register at BioN website (see below) before November 15.

The conference receives financial support by SMSUH and we keep the registration fees very low, especially for graduate and undergraduate students. SAN membership discount will also apply.
