For those of you in the So. Cal. area, this should be a fun meeting...
The Center for Hearing Research at UC Irvine will host an informal one-day conference intended to enhance communication among Southern California scientists interested in hearing. The date is Friday, September 17, 2010. All levels of researchers are welcome, students and staff through faculty, but we particularly would like to encourage presentations from senior students and post-docs. The event will consist of 15-min talks (plus 5 minutes for questions), no more than one from each lab, as well as posters from anyone who would like to offer one. We hope that each speaker will take the first few minutes to briefly introduce the overall scope of research in his or her lab followed by a presentation of a specific research result. If it happens that we receive more volunteers for talks than we can accommodate, we will be back in touch with you to try to trim things down to one or two talks per institution. The posters can be new, but repeats from recent ARO or other meetings also are welcome. We will provide lunch and coffee and snacks throughout the day. We also will organize an optional dinner at a local restaurant, the cost of dinner to be covered by each diner. Aside from the $8.00 parking fee and the cost of the optional dinner, there will be no fee. We do, however, request that you RSVP through the website so that we know how many participants to expect.
