Call for abstracts – Brain Matters 2: Ethics in the translation of neuroscience research to psychiatric and neurological care

Dear colleagues,

We are delighted to announce that the call for abstract (talks, panels, posters) for Brain Matters 2, an international conference in neuroethics, is now open. The deadline for submission is February 1st, 2011. Instructions and submission forms can be found on the website of the conference: www.brainmatters2.com. The call for abstracts is open to contributions reflecting the diversity of disciplines and methodologies relating to neuroethics. Researchers and students in the fields of neuroscience, ethics, philosophy, medicine, science, history, social studies, law and policy are encouraged to apply to present their work related to the field of neuroethics and the theme of the 2011 conference.

Registration for the conference is also open and early registration is encouraged as the number of participants is limited.

An award competition for trainees is in place to sustain the next generation of neuroethics scholars and to encourage the participation of trainees at the conference. Brain Matters 2 will feature several distinguished speakers and promises to be a unique, interactive, and enjoyable conference.

On behalf of the local organizing committee and the international scientific and advisory board, I invite you to get acquainted with the conference and to please contact us (neuroethics@ircm.qc.ca) if you have any questions.

Sincerely.

Eric Racine
