Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 8, 2013. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
GRS Speaker Abstract Deadline: Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application by April 6, 2013. Please refer to the Application Instructions section below for more details (if available).
The Eye Movements Gordon Research Seminar will be held in conjunction with the Eye Movements Gordon Research Conference
. Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRC in addition to an application for the GRS. Please refer to the Eye Movements GRC web page for more information.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Eye Movements is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The focus of this meeting is the oculomotor system: eye movements and their underlying neurobiology. The conference will include sessions on models, the interaction with the senses, experimental and analytical methods, and anatomical and clinical perspectives, as well as a panel discussion by junior and senior scientists on seeking a permanent position in academia or industry.
The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 6, 2013. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.
