BSN Meetings Activities - what's next?

For our annual meeting in 2010 we go international, incorporating the BSN Annual Meeting into the 7th International Congress of Neuroendocrinology being held in Rouen. The BSN will subsidise registration so that all classes of member can make the trip. In 2011 we return to an independent BSN Annual Meeting in Cambridge hosted by Giles Yeo and colleagues.

The key dates for your diary are:

  • 11th-15th July 2010: Seventh International Congress of Neuroendocrinology, Rouen, France, see preliminary details at http://icn2010.univ-rouen.fr/
  • 3rd- 5th July 2011 (Provisional): BSN Annual Meeting Cambridge

In addition to hosting its own meetings, the BSN supports neuroendocrinology by contributing to funding symposia at other Society Meetings to increase the profile of neuroendocrinology, for example in the BES and BNA. In 2011 the BSN will be sponsoring symposia at the BNA Meeting in Harrogate (details to follow) and I would be grateful for any suggestions for titles and speakers for neuroendocrine topics that you feel would benefit from exposure at other meetings. Also the BSN is keen to provide financial support for stand alone Neuroendocrine one day workshop meetings and any ideas for these are welcomed. Please email suggestions to helen.christian@dpag.ox.ac.uk. I look forward to seeing you in Rouen.

Helen Christian, BSN Meetings Secretary
