Neuroscience 2013: Are You Ready?
Neuroscience 2013 is the premier venue for neuroscientists to present emerging science, learn from experts, collaborate and network with peers, explore new tools and technologies, and advance careers. More than 30,000 neuroscientists from more than 80 countries are expected this year at the world’s largest neuroscience meeting.
This year’s meeting will be held November 9 – 13 in San Diego, California, one of the top convention and meetings destinations in the United States, and home to one of Elsevier’s global offices.
Elsevier’s booth is always a top destination for the delegates. The booth is a collaboration of many departments including Science and Technology Books and Journals, as well as Cell Press. The booth (#213) is open from November 10 – 13, from 9:30 am – 5:00 pm. Here is a sample of the activities that you can expect to find at the booth:
Science and Technology Books will be showcasing their word-class neuroscience titles including new editions of their world-famous atlases including both The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, The Mouse Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, new editions of best-sellers like MATLAB for Neuroscientists and Neuroeconomics, as well as classics like Fundamental Neuroscience. There will be plenty of new books including Mathematical Neuroscience which is taking the social media community by storm with more than 1,500 Facebook likes since its publication. In total, we’ll be showcasing 125 books, all at a conference discounts of 20% off list price. In addition, delegates can bring in a direct mail coupon they’ll receive just prior to the conference that gives them an additional 10% off any one book. We’ll also have iPads available for customers to take advantage of ordering the electronic version or the print/electronic combo off of the Elsevier Store at the conference discount. All books purchased or ordered at the booth include free global shipping. We’ll also have many of our notable authors at the booth including David Sweatt, Larry Squire, Gulgun Sengul, John Johnson, and more. Paul Glimcher, author of Neuroeconomics, Second Edition, will be signing copies of his book on Monday between 12:00 and 2:00 pm. On Tuesday, between 12:00 and 2:00pm, George Paxinos will be at the booth signing copies of his many books.
Visitors to the booth can browse our portfolio of top neuroscience journals including Brain Research, NeuroImage and Neurobiology of Disease, as well as society related titles Neuroscience and Neuroscience Research. Delegates will have the opportunity to pick up free copies of more than 60 journals on display. In addition we will be giving away goody bags containing useful information for authors on the publication process and outlining details of Open Access publishing within our journals. Plus, delegates will be able to access a collection of special issues relevant to topics covered by the conference. These will all be free to read online for a limited period. We’ll also be encouraging delegates to participate in our Neuroscience Trumps competition for a chance to win one of two Kindle Fire HD devices.
Delegates who stop by Cell Press can expect to find copies of their favorite Cell Press journals including: Cell, Neuron, Cell Reports, Trends in Neurosciences, Trends in Cognitive Sciences, and our annual special collection, Best of Neuron. Cell Press editors are excited to engage with attendees at the booth during our “meet the editor” events on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday from 10am to 11am, and from 1:30pm to 2:30pm each day. This year, Neuron is celebrating 25 years of publishing pioneering neuroscience. We’re celebrating at SfN by showcasing 25 years of the most influential research in neuroscience. Attendees will be able to enter in giveaways for their chance to win a Neuron25 swag bag, in addition to participating in our “Pin to Win” campaign for a chance to win a Kindle. We will also be giving away posters and, of course, the Cell Press Coloring Book.
The Image Vault is a first of its kind image matching tool where users can pair their own histology or images against a comprehensive, high resolution MRI atlas of the rodent brain. Image Vault’s MRI library allows users to customize their viewing requirements by providing MRI images in all three planes (coronal, sagittal, and horizontal) as well as the ability to toggle between multiple contrasts and 3D views. Users can match their own sections to the MRI dataset by interacting with the atlas to customize their angle of approach in any plane and the other viewing panels will dynamically respond allowing you to find the perfect spot that best pairs with your images. Unlike histological atlasing techniques, different MRI contrasts can perfectly correspond to one another so that you never have any gaps in information and data sets can be skewed at any angle the user chooses to help identify regions of interest. These images are taken using in vivo techniques so that no shrinking or warping of the sections occur as can happen in traditional staining techniques. Delegates are invited to bring their own image files to the Elsevier booth and try out the tool.
See you at Neuroscience 2013!
The scientific study of the nervous system is entering a new golden age. Researchers and clinicians continue to advance the treatment of conditions such as Alzheimer’s syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury. Public initiatives like the federal Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) program in the United States, announced in April 2013, ensure that funding and resources will continue to be applied to this rapidly growing field. Elsevier’s journals, books, eBooks, online references, and tools are respected around the world for everything from physiology and pathology to behavioral genetics and nerve repair. Our publications are a gateway to the latest advancements in neuroscience research and leading-edge data for professionals, students, and academics alike.
