Satellite Meetings

Confirmed Satellite Meetings

Australasian Auditory Neuroscience Workshop (AANW)
Date: 27th January 2014
Location: National Wine Centre of Australia, Adelaide 
Description: AANW 2014 is especially designed as an educational forum for emerging researchers—doctoral students and postdoctoral trainees—to present their work in a constructive yet scientifically critical environment. The senior scientists are present in a supportive and mentoring role. Our meeting has attracted between 50-120 participants, depending on the location around Australia. The international speakers are Dr. Charles Liberman of Harvard Medical School and Dr. Poppy Crum of Dolby Labs.

ANS Vision Satellite Meeting 2014
Date: 27th January 2014
Location: National Wine Centre of Australia, Adelaide
Description: The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers working on all areas of the visual systems from different disciplines of neuroscience to highlight how these specific research fields work together to contribute to our understanding of the central nervous system. Topics of focus will include developmental biology, circuitry and higher processing in the functioning visual system and disease models. Neuroscience disciplines involving different animal models will include developmental biology, neuroanatomy, physiology, psychophysics and behavioural research.
Contact names and addresses: Dr Patricia Jusuf,; A/Prof. Erica Fletcher,

Brain, Body & Mind: Treating the parts or managing the whole?
Date: 1st Feb 2014 (9am to 6pm)
Location: SAHMRI
Description: We invite you to a Satellite meeting of ANS Adelaide 2014, coordinated by University of Adelaide, ASCEPT, PNIRS, ANS and SAHMRI.   The meeting is bringing together Clinicians, Neuroscientists, Psychologists, Pharmacologists and Physicists to provide a forum where the latest developments in the fields of Psychoneuroimmunology, Neuropharmacology, Receptor Pharmacology & Biophotonics will be discussed and interdisciplinary collaborations can be established.   Both "Master Class" and “Basic science” sessions will be run, enabling students, clinicians  and researchers alike, to learn from the experts in the field and rapidly increase their understanding in these complex interdisciplinary domains. Confirmed speakers include, Prof Keith Kelly (USA), Dr Ruth Barrientos (USA), Prof Arthur Christopoulos (Monash), A/Prof Kevin Pfleger (UWA), A/Prof Deb Hodgson (U Newcastle), Prof Steve Kent (La Trobe), Dr Sarah Spencer (RMIT), & Dr Rohan Walker (U Newcastle).

ENS II 2014, The Enteric Nervous System, 30 years later
Date: 1st -2nd February 2014
Location: To be advised
Description: The Enteric Nervous System 2; 2014 meeting (henceforth referred to as ENS II 2014"), which is an official Satellite meeting of the Australian Neuroscience Society Conference. It will be held in Adelaide over two days -Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd February 2014, immediately following the Australian Neuroscience Society annual conference (which runs from 28th-31st January; see:  ENS II 2014 will take place in the National Wine Centre on North Terrace/Botanic Road, central Adelaide.

Here's a little background about this meeting.  In 1983, the one of the very first meetings on the enteric nervous system was held at Flinders University. The small and successful meeting involved the leading researchers in the field from all around the world.  The meeting in 1983 identified methodological strategies and unresolved issues. Since then, an enormous body of research on the enteric nervous system has been published. This has not only improved our understanding of the control of the gut, but has arguably been a fertile source of ideas, techniques and concepts to understand the nervous system as a whole.

Our aim for 2014 is to hold a similar meeting, 30 years later, to identify how far the field has come, which technological advances have been most influential and where ENS research is heading in the future.

Approximately 30 speakers, from around the world will give talks that will revisit the original expectations, recent advances and future directions for the enteric nervous system.  John Furness and Marcello Costa, the organisers of the 1983 meeting will be patrons of the 2014 meeting. The list of speakers (who have accepted an initial invitation) include many key players in the field: Geoffrey Burnstock, Michael Gershon, David Grundy, Jan Huizinga, Kenton Sanders, Keith Sharkey, Yvette Tache, Jackie Wood, Joe Szurszewski, John Furness, Marcello Costa, Alan Lomax, Gianrico Farrugia, Gary Mawe, Michel Neunlist, Pieter Vanden Berghe, Heather Young, Joel Bornstein, Nigel Bunnett, Simon Brookes, Grant Hennig, David Linden, Daniel Poole, Roberto De Giorgio, Marlene Hao, Leni Rivera, Jamie Foong, Paul Bertrand and Phil Dinning.

We would like to invite you and your students to attend this unique meeting.  You may also want to consider taking part in the Annual Conference of the Australian Neuroscience Society (abstracts for orals close on 4th October 2013 - poster abstracts close 8th November - see website for meeting for details: 

The deadline to register for "ENS II 2014" is 18th October 2013.  The nominal registration fee is $100 -  to be paid via a secure, Flinders University website.  A conference dinner will be held on the Saturday 1st evening and the cost will also be $100.  The total number of places is limited to 90 by the size of the venue so please apply soon.  We will notify you if your registration has been successful, by October 31st 2013.
