Neuroscience 2017 - 5 tips for 5 conference days

Sunday, 12 November, 2017

How to survive a conference with 30,000 colleagues from more than 80 countries, over 15,000 abstracts sharing new and exciting discoveries, symosia and minisymposia promoting comprehensive coverage of significant neuroscience research topics, and more than 600 exhibitors showcasing new tools, technologies, and publishing opportunities? Here are five tips to make the most out of Neuroscience 2017!

1) Download the official 2017 App

First and foremost, download the Official 2017 App! The annual meeting app is the best resource to help you navigate the meeting's science, exhibitors, and events.

2) Go enjoy the scientific presentations

A selection of Noldus-related presentations at the Society for Neuroscience meeting 2017 can be downloaded here.

3) Check out the exhibit hall

November 12

Go check out the exhibitors. Noldus welcomes you to their brand new booth! Don't be too late though. Make sure you get some great free swag from the exhibitors.

Go to the Noldus booth #1223 to collect green cute rats and zebrafish key chains.

In the Noldus human centered research booth #1229, we're giving away magnets, together with magnets from our partners Tobii Pro #2701 & Biopac #1337 they make up a great picture.

4) Go Dutch

November 12 - 7pm–10 pm Marriott, salon 9

This social, hosted by the Dutch NeuroFederation, aims at bringing together neuroscientists from The Netherlands (also those currently working abroad), friends, and colleagues.

If you are interested in meeting your Dutch colleagues in an informal setting and want to stay informed about job opportunities in The Netherlands, please come and join us.

5) Start blogging

November 12 - 12pm - 2pm 207B

Join the Professional Development Workshops: the Practical Guide to Science Communication

You'll develop science communication skills during this workshop. Isn't it nice to switch between listening to a speaker to participanting in an active workshop?

So in this particular workshop, first, you'll create a short, compelling story for your research. Then, you'll develop a flexible strategy to share their scientific story with any audience. Strategies for being clear, concise and compelling will be discussed.

If you need a platform to publish your articles on, you can reach out to me ( so you can join our group of Guest Bloggers for the Behavioral Research Blog! Feel free to reach out and discuss opportunities.
