2018 Conference on Learning and Memory

Dear TRF colleagues,

I am emailing to invite you to our 2018 International Conference on Learning and Memory in Huntington Beach. The conference will be held in celebration of the 35th anniversary of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory at UC Irvine.

When: April 18-22, 2018
Where: Waterfront Beach Resort, A Hilton Hotel, Huntington Beach, CA
The purpose of the conference is to bring together several communities in learning and memory, bridging across animal and human work as well as across fundamental and translational neuroscience. Timing in particular is a topic of major interest in the learning and memory community and have symposia, talks and posters focused on temporal memory, time perception and temporal processing would be most welcome. I would strongly urge you to consider submitting your work to #LEARNMEM2018
The conference is open to scientists, students, clinicians, and community members. Expected attendance is 800-1000. Please feel free to forward this email to any colleagues or lab members who may be interested in presenting and/or attending the meeting.
Abstract Submission, registration, and housing are now OPEN!

We are now accepting proposals for symposia, open papers, lightning talks and posters and will continue to do so until September 1, 2017. However, since space is limited, priority will be given to earlier submissions. We recommend submitting before July 15, 2017.

Highlighted speakers include Carol Barnes, Gyuri Buzsaki, Howard Eichenbaum, Ann Graybiel, Claudia Kawas, Beth Loftus, Gary Lynch, Eleanor Maguire, Jim McGaugh, Bruce McNaughton, Richard Morris, Lynn Nadel, Liz Phelps, Dan Schacter, and Reisa Sperling. Our Keynote Speaker is 2014 Nobel Prize Laureate Edvard Moser.
Discounted registration is available for students/postdocs and other trainees. Southern California has numerous fun attractions and experiences that are family friendly. Come a few days earlier or stay a few days later than the conference (the hotel venue will offer the same discounted lodging rate) and bring the whole family.
I hope TRF colleagues will consider joining us and submitting symposia for the conference. All information is available on the conference website at http://learnmem2018.org
