Registration, accommodation, financial costs and travel instructions

Registration is already open (http://sophia.ecm.ub.es/2009art/cgi-bin/appl.pl). All information on accommodation and financial costs will be soon posted on the meeting website (http://sophia.ecm.ub.es/2009art/). The easiest way to get to Benasque is to fly onto Barcelona international airport and take a shuttle or bus from there to the city of Benasque. Please, contact the meeting secretariat (benasque at ecm.ub.es <mailto:benasque at ecm.ub.es> ) to organize this last leg of your trip to the meeting. Since it takes about three hours to get from Barcelona to Benasque, and the closing lecture is scheduled on the evening of July 16, I would like to suggest that you book your return flight no sooner than the afternoon of July 17.


Special issue on one of the Frontiers in Neuroscience journal series

The organizing committee has arranged for a special issue about the meeting to be published in one of the Frontiers in Neuroscience journal series. The special issue will include a report on the meeting and several review articles, commentaries and original research papers on the topics discussed during the meeting. The issue will be peer reviewed and the submission is open to all the scientific and artistic communities, not only to those registered to the meeting. The call for papers will appear soon. 


Presentations. Call for abstracts

Authors willing to present their communications should submit an abstract (see example below) and indicate their preference for oral, poster presentation or artistic display. Presentations will be selected on the basis of their potential quality and originality by the organizing committee. Abstracts will be published by the Frontiers in Neuroscience journal series.

Abstracts must be sent to this e-mail address (l.martinez at umh.es).  Deadline for abstract submission is April 15, 2009. 

Abstracts will be formally accepted only when registration fees of the presenting author have been received. Authors will receive a confirmation via e-mail once registration has been completed.

Poster presentations and artistic displays will be allocated in different sessions (at least one per day) and will be on display for the entire meeting.
