Please follow the guidelines below:

  • Each minisymposium should last for about 50 minutes, with 4-5 speakers presenting and discussing a coherent topic in neuroscience that should be of interest to a broad audience.

  • Only graduate students, postdoctoral researchers (including non-tenure-track research professors) can participate in the minisymposium as speakers and chairpersons.

  • Each minisymposium should have 1 chairperson to moderate the session and lead discussion.

  • Speakers and the chair should be included only upon their consent.

  • All speakers must be present offline at the venue (BEXCO, Busan) and no online participation will be allowed.

  • English should be used as the official language.
