Panel Presenters

  • A panel should provide an informative introduction to a specialized area for a diverse audience of neuroscientists.
  • This format should consist of four formal presentations of about 20-25 minutes/speaker on a common topic.
  • Speakers should be experts in the topic; skilled and committed to giving an overview of the subject. Organizers are particularly encouraged to include qualified minority scientists and young investigators in their sessions.
  • Panels permit a session chair (organizer) and up to four speakers (one of whom can be the chair). If the session chair intends to make more than brief introductory remarks, only three additional participants should be included.
  • Speaker order should be indicated in the proposal abstract and it is critical that this order be adhered to. Provide time for discussion from members of the audience.
