Azka Hotel, Bodrum, Turkey  --   September 1-5., 2008

X International Conference on Cognitive Neuroscience (ICON X) is approaching
and we are pleased to highlight some aspects of its exciting programme that
should not be missed.

ICON X is intended to promote interdisciplinary dialogue in the scientific
study of cognition. The conference will address current empirical and
theoretical issues in the study of cognition, from the perspectives of
neuroscience, psychology, clinical medicine, and computational science.

ICON X will be held from September 1st to September 5th 2008 in Bodrum,
Turkey. Beyond being a lively, popular holiday resort on the Aegean Sea,
Bodrum has an incredibly rich past as a place where people have lived
continuously for thousands of years. Its position in or near so many of the
great civilizations and events of ancient history also makes Halicarnassus
(Bodrum's ancient name) an interesting site to visit. So, the meeting
promises to be both intellectually stimulating and culturally interesting!

Please visit the ICON X web site at www.iconxbodrum.org . On-line abstract
submission and registration pages are now active. Abstract submission
deadline is May 15th and early registration deadline with reduced fee is
June 1st. Submissions for both posters and talks will be accepted. Any
person may present only two submissions, but may be co-author on more than

Even if you do not want to submit an abstract now, please register yourself
as a user of the WEB page, so that we can inform you about the updates.

We look forward to meeting you in Bodrum in September.
