II. Submit a Session 專題座談投稿

 

The 8th MBI Int’l Symposium is seeking for proposals for symposia sessions, which are intended to complement a broader conceptual themes of invited talks. Hence, proposed symposia sessions should be focused on a special interest topic; for example, a methodological issue, a disease-centered approach, or a focused topic within a specific domain of neuroscience.

 

The time allocated for each session is 120 minutes, organised as 4-5 talk slots. Discussion time can be scheduled according to the organizers discretion (e.g., after individual talks, concentrated at the end of a session, or for an alternative format, such as a debate among the speakers, an extended Q&A between the audience and speakers, etc.).

 

Session chair must ensure that all speakers are committed to participating in the symposium before submitting a proposal, and is also responsible for assurance of adherence to the rules and of the merit of the presentation.

 

In the case of a session talk with more than one author, the first author must present the work. Proposals will be evaluated by the MBI Scientific Committee. Symposium sessions often benefit from a diversity of perspective and institutional affiliations. Proposals from young investigators are encouraged. Submitting a session proposal and/or speaking in a symposium does not prevent you from submitting an abstract for an oral or poster presentation at MBI Int’l Symposium.
