NCM provides the opportunity for members to suggest prominent colleagues in the field of neuroscience who would be suitable candidates to provide a Keynote Address at the Annual Conference.
The Keynote is an invited lecture delivered by a prominent colleague whose contributions to neuroscience are widely acknowledged. Individuals and topics outside the normal NCM community are encouraged.
Board members nominate candidates for consideration. Members are invited to suggest candidates to the Board (any member) or directly to both the President and Program Chair. Deadline for nominations each year is in November.
When submitting your Keynote address suggestion, please include the proposed candidate's name, title, major scientific contributions and their email address and phone number.
