We are pleased to announce the Cold Spring Harbor Asia conference onInvertebrate Neurobiology which will be held at the Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center in Suzhou, China, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai. The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Monday June 18, and will conclude after lunch on Friday June 22, 2012.

This conference is similar in design to the famous Cold Spring Harbor meetings series, a program now in its 76th year. The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.

Major Topics:
- Neural development
- Neural function and synaptic plasticity
- Neural circuits and behaviors
- Sensory and motor systems
- Learning and memory
- Evolution of nervous systems
- Modeling human neurological diseases
- Neural techniques

Keynote Speakers:
Invited Speakers:
We encourage abstracts to contain new and unpublished materials. The abstracts must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers. Status (fellow's talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. A certain number of presentations by graduate students and postdocs in this conference will be selected as fellowship (USD $200-$500) awards. For more details, please visit  
We look forward to seeing you at Suzhou in June.
