Society for Neuroscience (SfN)
SfN's annual meeting provides the world's largest forum for neuroscientists to debut research and network with colleagues from around the world. Through lectures, symposia, workshops and events, attendees experience innovative neuroscience research. The meeting features thousands of abstracts and provides networking and professional development opportunities.
College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD)
Since 1938, a major focus of the CPDD has been its sponsorship of an annual scientific meeting. This conference serves as a forum bringing together basic scientists and clinical investigators from industry, academia and government. Representatives of regulatory agencies, as well as scientists and professionals in a number of diverse disciplines interested in the biochemical, behavioral and public health aspects of drug dependence participate.
International Narcotics Research Conference
This conference contributes to the advancement of science relating to all aspects of opioid research, primarily by providing an international forum where there can be exchanges of information among interested scientists from different disciplines.
Gordon Research Conferences
The nonprofit Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) exist for the benefit of the scientific community. GRC provides an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical and physical sciences, and their related technologies.
International Association for the Study of Pain
The International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) is the leading professional forum for science, practice and education in the field of pain. Membership in IASP is open to all professionals involved in research, diagnosis or treatment of pain. IASP has more than 6,500 members in 123 countries, 83 national chapters, and 14 Special Interest Groups (SIGs). Founded in 1973, the association is governed by an international Council, made up of Officers and Councilors elected by the membership. Members may also serve on Committees, Task Forces, and Working Groups.
International Behavioral and Neural Genetics Society
The International Behavioral and Neural Genetics Society (IBANGS) was founded in 1996 to promote the field of neurobehavioral genetics. IBANGS organizes annual meetings to promote excellence in research on behavioral and neural genetics. IBANGS is a young and rapidly growing society with members in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia. The society welcomes established scientists, students and anyone else who is interested in the field of behavioral neurogenetics. IBANGS is a founding member of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS).
Winter Conference on Brain Research
The first "WCBR" was organized by neuroscientists from UCLA and held at the University of California conference center near Lake Tahoe in 1968. There were about 60 attendees, and the meeting was oriented mostly towards behavioral neuroscience and electrophysiological recording. Now each meeting includes approximately 500 neuroscientists from all over the world who work in a wide variety of fields. The format includes more than 80 posters and 84 panels and workshops. The aim of panels is for experts in a specific field to provide a broad overview for a general audience. Workshops are more focused and are aimed at discussing specific issues in a given field. Posters represent an individual's scientific contributions. The meeting provides a unique opportunity for you to catch up on new developments in fields outside your own, to meet and interact with long-time colleagues, and to develop new collaborations in a casual setting.
